Final Fantasy XIV Director and Producer Naoki Yoshida talked with Game Watch in an interview based on the latest Letter From the Producer Live broadcast. In it, he talks about the origin of the name “Gods Revel, Lands Tremble” for Patch 6.3 of Final Fantasy XIV Endwalker, along with going over the story content coming in the next update. [Thanks, Game Watch!]
It seems like Yoshida and the FFXIV team had difficulties coming up with the name for the new update. In his interview with Game Watch, he said that “Gods Revel” refers to the second part of the Alliance Raid, Myths of the Realm, originally released with Patch 6.1. However, this wasn’t enough of a novelty to name this patch. The inclusion of Eureka Orthos, the newest Deep Dungeon and the first one since Stormblood, completed the full meaning behind the name of Patch 6.3. Yoshida also said that the “tremble” aspect in the title isn’t just there to give a flashy impression. It was chosen to signify that there is something unknown stirring beneath, as well.
The new update will see the Warrior of Light joining Alphinaud and Alisaie for the first time in the story since the finale in Final Fantasy XIV Endwalker. They will join forces for the new main scenario Dungeon, Lapis Manalis. Located in the east of Garlemald, Yoshida mentioned that this is not exactly a new area, but didn’t reveal more as to avoid spoilers. Players will also have the chance to see more of Zero, a voidwalker originating from The Thirteen, and will see whether she will grow or not after making contact with a world of light.
Patch 6.3 of Final Fantasy XIV Endwalker, titled “Gods Revel, Lands Tremble,” will continue the MMORPG’s story in early January 2023. Final Fantasy XIV is available on PC, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5.
