FFXIV Patch 6.2 Trailer

Square Enix uploaded a new trailer for the next stage of content for Final Fantasy XIV: Endwalker. The FFXIV Patch 6.2 trailer previewed some previously announced additions to the game. These included the Island Sanctuary space, new story developments, and more. Producer Naoki Yoshida revealed the new trailer during the latest Letter from the Producer Live broadcast.

Check out the FFXIV Patch 6.2 trailer below.

(The rest of the article will focus on non-story content, though.)

Aside from continuing the Warrior of Light’s adventures in the post-Endwalker era, the FFXIV patch 6.2 trailer previews some of the new content players can expect. These include another tier of the Pandaemonium raid series, Abyssos. Abyssos will feature a boss called “Proto-Carbuncle”, a boss-sized version of the little Carbuncle creatures used by Scholars. There’s also a new instanced dungeon, the Fell Court of Troia, and an as-yet-unnamed Trial. Patch 6.2 swaps the Unreal Trial for Containment Bay S1T7 as well, letting players battle Sephirot to satisfy the Faux Commander. FFXIV Patch 6.2 will also expand improvements to the Main Scenario Quests of previous expansions. Five additional dungeons from Heavensward and A Realm Reborn will be revamped. The Duty Support system will also be added to several story-critical Heavensward dungeons.

Some other content, though, will follow after the debut of patch 6.2. The game’s first “Variant Dungeon” game type debuts in Patch 6.25. Players will plumb The Sil’dihn Subterrane, a dungeon that scales its difficulty to the number of players participating. A variant of the Variant Dungeon, called the Criterion Dungeon, is a high-difficulty dungeon built to challenge expert parties. The same goes for the next phase of Hildibrand quests, Manderville Weapons, and a new Tribe quest series are also set for Patch 6.25.

Final Fantasy XIV: Endwalker is available on PC, PS4, and PS5. Patch 6.2 debuts on August 23, 2022.
