Square Enix has detailed when Final Fantasy XIV‘s next big content update will drop. During its latest Letter from the Producer broadcast, Square Enix confirmed that Patch 5.4, titled Futures Rewritten, will arrive in early December, and it’ll introduce a wealth of additional content for the Shadowbringers expansion.
Among other things, Patch 5.4 will add new main scenario quests. As Square Enix describes, “Following the grand conclusion of the Shadowbringers story in Patch 5.3, players will set out on a new adventure” in December’s update. The patch will also introduce the third installment in the Eden raid series, as well as the next chapter in the Sorrow of Werlyt questline.
Beyond that, Patch 5.4 will also bring the dreaded Emerald Weapon to Final Fantasy XIV. Players will be able to challenge it in both normal and extreme difficulties. There will also be a new dungeon, Matoya’s Relict, which is going to be part of the new main story questline. On top of that, the patch will introduce a new Unreal trial and a new Explorer mode that lets you venture around dungeons to take screenshots without have to worry about dealing with enemies.
