During the Final Fantasy XIV Fan Festival 2016-17 in Frankfurt, Germany, Square Enix announced Samurai as the second new job to be added to the MMORPG’s Stormblood expansion.
During the Fan Festival keynote, Yoshi-P revealed Samurai as the new job. And yes, Spider-Man was the hint. It’ll be a melee DPS job that uses katana as its main weapon. The job’s starting level is 50.
The Samurai job will be capable of dishing out heavy damage, and will use “Iai” and other traditional Far-Eastern swordplay techniques. It also uses the art of “Sen” and its three forces of “Setsu” (Snow), “Getsu” (Moon), and “Ka” (Flower). You’ll store energy in your katana to unleash special attacks.
We’ll have more details as well as a summary from the keynote shortly.
Final Fantasy XIV is available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PC. The Stormblood expansion launches June 20 for PS4 and PC.
