Final Fantasy 14: Shadowbringers will be releasing Patch 5.1 this fall, which is titled Vows of Virtue, Deeds of Cruelty. Indeed, the new patch brings a large amount of content including new main scenario quests and gatherer content. It even includes the first chapter of the YoRHa: Dark Apocalypse alliance raid, something that players are sure to be excited about.

So what makes this raid unique? This update brings Nier to the world of Final Fantasy. This was made possible in collaboration with NieR: Automata Producer Yosuke Saito and Director Yoko Taro.

Additional content with patch 5.1 will include:

  • Restoring the Holy See of Ishgard
