In August 2013, FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn was released worldwide for Microsoft Windows and PlayStation 3. Produced and directed by Naoki Yoshida and developed by Square Enix, the massively multiplayer online role-playing game acted as a new and improved revamp for the 2010 version of the title.

Fast forward to present day, and FINAL FANTASY XIV is still going strong. It’s now available on PS5, PS4, PC, and macOS. And it’s about to gain another expansion on December 7.

FINAL FANTASY XIV: Endwalker is not only the latest expansion of the game, but it’s set to be the most thrilling one, as it will conclude the Hydaelyn and Zodiark saga spanning eight years since the launch of FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn.

“Endwalker brings the tale of Hydaelyn and Zodiark to a conclusion eons in the making,” states the FINAL FANTASY XIV website. “To unravel its mysteries and conquer its challenges will be no common feat. May these records of key figures, looming adversaries, and lands yet untraveled serve you well.”

With the release of Endwalker comes a bunch of new content. Expect the hotly anticipated new jobs — Sage and Reaper, new challenging dungeons, and a new high difficulty raid dubbed Pandæmonium. That’s not all folks, on top of this, the expansion will also include a new raid series, called Myths of the Realm, plus you’ll be able to play as a new sex (Male Viera).

The expansion will also feature two new tribes — the Arkasodara and the Loporrits. The former of which resemble the great marid in both their stature and appearance, while the latter are mysterious beings said to have much in common with beings of legend who travelled to the realm from the moon.

In good news for folks in our neck of the woods, Oceania will finally be getting its own data centre to give Australia and New Zealand players a more reliable server and give players the best experience possible. A welcome addition to say the least.

This new data centre, which will be named Materia, is set to start operating in February next year, opening up new Worlds that will support free world transfer and provide bonuses for new players and those looking to bring over existing characters.

FINAL FANTASY XIV now boasts a bloody whopping 24 million worldwide total registered players (imagine basically everyone in Australia being a registered player — wild). So, it’s kind of never been a better time for newbies to get stuck into the world of FINAL FANTASY, just in time to play Endwalker.
