Square Enix released a new Final Fantasy XIV Japanese promotional video featuring a male Viera as the chosen Warrior of Light. Under the title, “Let’s start your adventure,” the video focuses on the adventures in Eorzea of the character, along with his companions and the friends he makes on his journeys.
While the video plays, the remix of the classic Final Fantasy main theme plays in the background. The video includes several captions in Japanese, with the first one being “This is where it started, my adventures and my companions’.” This is set against a view of Limsa Lominsa as this Warrior of Light’s starting place.
Afterwards, several hashtags appear on screen. They translate to #DungeonChallenge and #Sastasha. During this and other dungeons, the male Viera Warrior of Light meets his FFXIV #FirstCompanions and they #BattleTogether. The video then shows the Viera enjoying himself in several locations of Eorzea, and it ends with the question “What adventure will you experience in this world?”

Male Vieras were not originally part of the game. They were only added to FFXIV alongside Endwalker, the latest expansion which released on November 23, 2021. Director and Producer Naoki Yoshida also commented back in 2021 that the team is planning to add female Hrothgar as a playable race sometime in the near future.
Final Fantasy XIV is readily available for the PS4, PS5, and Windows PC. Patch 6.38 released on April 4, 2023, and the full patch notes are out now.
