Final Fantasy XIV Dawntrail Raid Series Called The Arcadion

After a brief Final Fantasy XIV Letter from the Producer Live LXXXII break, Director and Producer Naoki Yoshida and Square Enix General Manager of Community & Service Division Toshio “Foxclon” Murouchi returned to discuss the new FFXIV Dawntrail Raid series The Arcadion. While they didn’t show too much, for the sake of spoilers, they did discuss a bit about the Raid series starting in 7.01.

First, The Arcadion will be a new eight-person Raid series in Final Fantasy XIV Dawntrail. When showing the splash art for it, Yoshida noted they’d heard how many people said the designs resembled graphics cards. He and Foxclon joked about fans and the load. They also confirmed that there is a storyline to this new series. The Arcadion: ??? will be a part of the 7.01 patch, and its Savage version will arrive in 7.05. The two also joked that people may have noticed the Duty list revealed its full name, though they left it as ??? during the announcement to leave it as a surprise for viewers.

A clip from the boss fight appeared. It seems like it takes place in an arena. Ads appear around the edges, which will change as you go through the battle. An announcer offers narration during this segment. Also, the boss will talk during the fight. 

Here’s the video clip Square Enix shared on social media, so we can get a better look at the fight:

In the first half of this June 2024 Letter from the Producer Live, Yoshida and Foxclon went over the new dungeons, trials, Role Quests, Disciples of the Hand and Land Quests, and characters.

Final Fantasy XIV is available for the PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X, and PC, and the Dawntrail expansion will arrive on July 2, 2024
