Square Enix has released the preliminary patch notes for Final Fantasy XIV Patch 6.1. This includes a list of information concerning content and other features that will arrive with the patch. For example, new hairstyle options for male and female Viera will be available. Alongside this, further customization for Hrothgar will also be added to the game. The Final Fantasy XIV Patch 6.1 notes also reveal that certain cosmetic items will no longer be gender locked.
Additionally, the preliminary patch notes detail PvP changes and further information about the Crystalline Conflict PvP mode. The patch notes break down how the ranking system will work for PvP, and how players can increase their rank in Crystalline Conflict. Both a Ranked and Casual version of the PvP mode will be available for players. Quick Chat options will also be available. This means players can quickly communicate using a select few emotes during PvP.
The patch notes also reveal that several dungeons have been added to Explorer Mode. This mode allows players to walk through dungeons freely. It is largely used for screenshot purposes. Several duties will also be available to record once Final Fantasy XIV Patch 6.1 goes live.
Final Fantasy XIV is available for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC. The FFXIV patch 6.1 release date is April 12, 2022.
