Final Fantasy XIV’s next expansion, Stormblood, is just over a month away from launch and the game’s director/producer Naoki Yoshida has shared a few sneak peeks into some areas and job actions from the upcoming expansion over on the official forums. In the screenshots below, we get a look at the city of Kugane, the Azim Steppe, as well as job actions for Black Mage, Red Mage, and Bard.
“It’s currently midnight during Golden Week, and I took some screenshots while testing, so I’ll just leave them here. Just note…this thread may get closed if I get scolded by Project Manager M!”
“Here’s a screenshot of Kugane during nighttime while doing various final checks on samurai.”
“And here’s a screenshot of the new black mage action which I took using the new group pose feature.”
“Please forgive the low image quality due to the forum image size restrictions.
We’re working hard till the very last minute, so hang in there!
Good night Zzz…”
Later on, Yoshida followed up that post with another featuring three more screenshots.
“Here’s three new pics for today. Tomorrow I’ll be out of the office, so I’m not sure if I’ll be able to upload more. I did some checks on red mage, dragoon, and bard (and a few others, but I’ll leave them for another day).”
“Red mage action in group pose. This place is…”
“The morning sunrise at the Ruby Sea was beautiful, so here’s one with dragoon.”
“And here’s a bard action screenshot during sunset in the Azim Steppe.”
“I haven’t done any special touch-up on these screenshots, but think they turned out nicely!
(Oh and the bard screenshot isn’t in her underwear lol)
Good night. Zzz…”
Final Fantasy XIV is available for PC, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation 4. The upcoming Stormblood expansion will release on June 20th.
