Final Fantasy 14 Online announced that the next major update is set on December 8. Patch 5.4 or “Futures Rewritten” will bring a new chapter to an already critically-acclaimed story. This new update will offer robust changes along with new content for players.

That’s not all. New players still have the chance to enjoy an expanded free trial. The trial now comes with content from A Realm Reborn and the Heavensward expansions.

Players can expect New Main Scenario Quests, featuring Scions as they make their return to the Source. There’s also the New Raid Dungeon: Eden’s Promise. This is the third chapter of an eight-player raid series that follows the story of Ryne and Gaia, her mysterious counterpart. Players will get new challenging battles and a new boss. The new boss is designed by none other than Tetsuya Nomura, Final Fantasy series veteran and Kingdom Hearts director.

Other new stuff in Patch 5.4 includes:

  • Chronicles of a New Era - The Sorrow of Werlyt Updates
    • Players get to continue their attempt to foil the warmachina development project of the Empire. It appears however that there’s another enemy in the shadows which is The Emerald Weapon.
  • ​New Trial: Castrum Marinum
    • A warmachine with the code name “Emerald” has been confirmed. This means it’s time to go for a pre-emptive strike even before this menace is released to the world. Players get the chance to challenge the Emerald Weapon not only in normal difficulty but also the extreme difficulty.
