During Final Fantasy XIV’s stream celebrating the game’s fourth anniversary, a Live Letter from the Producer took place, featuring producer and director Naoki Yoshida. During the stream, Yoshida revealed new content that will be headed to the game with its upcoming Patch 4.1, The Legend Returns, which will launch early this October.
First off, Patch 4.1 will bring new main scenario quests to the MMO. Additionally, the patch will bring in one new dungeon in the form of The Drowned City of Skalla. The Royal Menagerie trial which players fight at the end of the Stormblood main story will be getting an Extreme version for adventurers to challenge.
For those players looking for even more difficult content, a new tier of raid difficulty will be added in Patch 4.1 called the “Ultimate” series. The first that will be available will be the Unending Coil of Bahamut (Ultimate). Completing these raids will reward players with a weapon with the same item level as that of the weapons from Deltascape 4.0 (Savage). Also, upon completion, players will receive a token which can be used to exchange for any weapon they would like.
Patch 4.1 will also see the addition of the next 24-person raid series. The Return to Ivalice raid will feature the world of both Final Fantasy Tactics and Final Fantasy XII prominently, and the first part of this raid will start players in the city of Rabanastre. We got a first look at the main visual, which features Final Fantasy Tactics’ Hero Ramza Beoulve and Delita Heiral.
Final Fantasy XIV is available for PC and PlayStation 4.
