Final Fantasy XIV fans will have lots to do in December, with patch 5.4 Futures Rewritten hitting on December 8.
Get ready to continue the story, a new raid and much more. Players get invited to the Empty to see if Ryne and Gaia’s efforts to bring life to a barren desert have worked. The new raid, Eden’s Promise, will investigate the consequences of that work.
Patch 5.4 also brings a warmachina codenamed Emerald into the fray. If you loved Final Fantasy VII’s Emerald Weapon, get ready for the FF14 take on this monstrosity.
“Chronicles of a New Era – The Sorrow of Werlyt Updates – Players can continue their attempt to thwart the Empire’s warmachina development project alongside Gaius after vanquishing the Sapphire Weapon. However, newly unearthed information alludes to another foe lurking in the shadows: The Emerald Weapon.
“New Trial: Castrum Marinum – With the existence of a warmachina code-named ‘Emerald’ confirmed, it falls to Warriors of Light to spearhead a pre-emptive strike before this menace can be unleashed upon the world. Players can challenge Emerald Weapon in both normal and extreme difficulties.”
The patch will also update Blue Mage to level 70, so get ready to go explore old raids and trials.
Producer and director Naoki Yoshida said there will be another FFXIV livestream next year on February 6.
