Patch 6.2 is launching on Final Fantasy XIV this August 23. Titled "Buried Memories," it's set to introduce battle challenges to the Island Sanctuary.

This was all revealed during the latest Letter from the Producer LIVE broadcast presented by Producer and Director Naoki Yoshida. In that broadcast, Yoshida gave a demonstration of Island Sanctuary. This is a new type of casual solo content where players can make and customize their own personal farm on a deserted island. They can do so by gathering materials, building facilities, caring for creatures, and more. All of this without the need for any previous crafting or gathering experience.

Other content that players can expect from Patch 6.2 include:

  • New Main Scenario Quests

    • Battle against Sephirot in Containment Bay S1T7 (Unreal).
  • ​PvP Updates
    • PvP Series 2 and Crystalline Conflict Season 3 will begin with the release of Patch 6.2.
