As reported in the past, patch version 2.1 for Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn will be released on December 17th, and Square Enix have shared a trailer that runs down all of the major features the patch will add to the game.



According to the game’s website, patch 2.1 will add to the Final Fantasy XIV’s main story with a scenario called “A Realm Awoken”. Additionally, a Crystal Tower labyrinth will be added to the game as well, where you will face enemies like King Behemoth and Thanatos.


Housing and beauty salons are, of course, another addition to the game that will make their debut in patch 2.1. The Wolves’ Den PVP arena will also make its debut in this patch.


We’ll have more details on patch 2.1 as they are made available.

    All the updates look fun, but I don’t think I’ll renew my subscription. After I got to level 50 and beat the story, I had no one to do end game stuff with lol. Maybe I’ll renew my sub for the scenario?

    • Ryomou

      Did you try finding a Free Company? I mean, I had the same problem as the people I originally started playing with have different work schedules than me, but once I found a lively FC I always had people to run things with…really makes a difference.

      • SlickRoach

        What’s this Free Company thing about exactly?

        • Ferrick

          this game’s equivalent of clans

    • OathkeeperSoraXIII

      I felt like that at first. As soon as I found a active free company (which wasn’t too hard) the end game became a lot more funner for me.

    Looks like I should get going on finishing up my leveling on my WHM soon so I can start getting through more of the main scenario.

    And if anyone’s looking to join but doesn’t want to without say, like minded friendly players, join onto Exodus and send a tell to Kyogissun Namavachi asking to join The Hypest Zaibatsu. We’re pretty laid back and very newcomer friendly so it would be a great place for anyone looking to hit the ground running to join.

  • Sardorim

    Any word on Cosmetic Tabs?

  • Only a few more days to go! Can’t wait for this patch. That last person at the end was Xemnas from Kingdom Hearts =P

  • Daniel

    Sweet merciful . . .

  • Loli Summoner

    Oh wow ;o awesome!

  • Sydney Losstarot

    For some odd reason, I felt a sense of awe and wonder near the end of the trailer when it said Main Scenario quests. My eyes started to well up too.

  • Seven of The Scions


  • fawzowz


  • Super excited for this update. Already was getting bored of grinding Amdapor Keep and Wanderer’s Palace.

  • The Watcher

    What’s the point of more Main Scenario quest but no level cap increase?

  • Vash bane

    don’t really care for wolves den but the housing remind me of another MMO…
    where I would spend hours just on that lol

    I really like the story in this game and the gameplay which is the main reason I even took a interest in this game (also…maybe ….cat girls….XDD).

    so I guess we wont be getting time cards so time to get a card >_<

    main quest continues? alright
