Square Enix recently announced that its next major update in Patch 4.3, titled Under the Moonlight, will launch late next month. Here are new screenshots for the Main Scenario, new dungeon and its gear.


Main Scenario: Under the Moonlight




The arrival of imperial envoys in the land of Doma was as unexpected as their stated purpose: to negotiate peace. Lord Hien, eager to secure the release of his conscripted countrymen, cautiously accepts the agreement, and arranges for a prisoner exchange. Yet even as Doma is poised to welcome the breaking dawn, the shadow of the fallen Zenos enfolds all in darkness and uncertainty.


New Dungeon: The Swallow’s Compass




Chiseled into the great wall which cuts across the plains of Yanxia, between two of the Dairyu Moon Gates, is the visage of Ganen, the legendary hero who united Doma. The first king of the new kingdom was not only a military genius, but also the founder of geomancy, and so after his death this royal mausoleum became a holy place to which his disciples would make pilgrimage. Alas, following the imperial invasion, it was abandoned and fell into disrepair, yet circumstances now conspire to deliver the Warrior of Light unto these hallowed halls─but to what end?


And lastly, here’s a look at the new dungeon gear from The Swallow’s Compass:



During the latest Letter from the Producer Live, it was revealed that a new trial along with its Extreme version will be introduced, but we won’t know what it is until Square Enix releases the Patch 4.3 trailer.


Deep Dungeon will get an update with “Heaven-on-High” which will require you to be level 60 to start. The 24-man raid Return to Ivalice gets its next part in 4.3 as well. We can expect to see some job adjustments for Dark Knight, Samurai, and Astrologian classes and more details on that will be shared soon in the patch notes.


In Patch 4.35 we can expect a couple additions with the Pagos Expedition to expand on The Forbidden Land of Eureka. The Ultima Weapon trial will get a new “Ultimate” difficulty with “The Minstrel’s Ballad: The Weapon’s Refrain in 4.35 as well.
