Final Fantasy XIV‘s patch 3.3, The Revenge of the Horde, is just on the horizon, with its release set for the beginning of June. In a couple of recent posts on the game’s official Lodestone, we get a small glimpse at the main scenario and two new dungeons included in the upcoming patch.

 

First off, here’s some more information on the main scenario:

 

The conference held at Falcon’s Nest was intended to celebrate the reconciliation between man and dragon. But the lingering shade of Nidhogg, clad in the flesh of the Azure Dragoon, marked the occasion by spilling the blood of his own kind─a timely atrocity to remind the children of Ishgard that the conflict was far from over. In those twilight hours Nidhogg cried out for vengeance, and his brethren raised their voices for the final chorus of the Dragonsong War.

In addition to new main scenario quests, patch 3.3 will also bring with it two new dungeons: Sohr Khai and Hullbreaker Isle (Hard). Both dungeons will require players to be level 60 and have an item level of 200 or higher.

Majestic and forgotten, its existence unrecorded in the annals of man, a palace rests atop the clouds in the farthest reaches of the Churning Mists. This skyborne splendor was once home to Ratatoskr, brood-sister to Hraesvelgr and Nidhogg, until the treachery of mortals ensured that its stones would never again ring under the she-wyrm’s talons. The dragons named it “Sohr Khai,” a grieving apology for their failure to avert her fate, and they watched with infinite sadness as Ratatoskr’s empty roost was overrun by bird and beast.

To the chagrin of countless treasure hunters, the golden coffer of the legendary Mistbeard was not to be found on Hullbreaker Isle. And so like the mists which had withdrawn to reveal the isle did those ambitious souls depart to seek fame and fortune elsewhere, allowing Eynzhar Slafyrsyn to quietly petition Admiral Merlwyb for permission to repurpose it as a training ground for Maelstrom recruits. The storm marshal would have you be the first to brave this gauntlet, that you might pit yourself against the isle’s fearsome fauna and the Maelstrom’s elite, and in so doing rouse their spirits. Will you give the storm officers a beating they will not soon forget, or will they stand triumphant at the last and shout that they have bested the Warrior of Light?

 

Additionally, to gain access Hullbreaker Isle (Hard), players must first have completed the main scenario quest “Heavensward,” and have also completed the quest “King of the Hull.”

 

Final Fantasy XIV is available for PC, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4. Patch 3.3, Revenge of the Horde, will release in the beginning of June. More details on the upcoming patch are expected to come out of the Letter from the Producer LIVE Part XXX this Sunday, May 22, 2016 at 2:00 a.m. (PDT).
