Square Enix has shared the official release date for Final Fantasy XIV’s patch 3.35 over on the game’s Lodestone. The patch will go live on Tuesday, July 19th, and will bring with it new content in the form of the Palace of the Dead deep dungeon.
Here’s the official description of the Palace of the Dead:
“In the subterranean city of Gelmorra, deep within a forgotten corner of Issom-Har, stout-hearted explorers have uncovered the entrance to a labyrinthine dungeon. Those who set foot inside its maddening halls find their vigor drained by an irresistible fog of innervation, and repeated excursions have failed to map its seemingly inconstant architecture. After hearing chilling accounts of spectral denizens, locals took to whispering of a “Palace of the Dead,” and the Wood Wailers now seek the assistance of adventurers in laying bare its haunted secrets…”
Adventurers will have to be at least level 17 to enter the deep dungeon. The leveling system inside the deep dungeon is unique in that players will be reduced to level 1 while inside and must fight enemies to level up and become stronger. Treasure chests found in the dungeon will also reward weapons that can be used to further enhance your character.
