Patch 3.2 for Final Fantasy XIV – The Gears Of Change – hit PlayStation 4 and PC earlier today, bringing with it a massive deluge of new content to satisfy the tastes of hardcore raiders, casual players and newcomers alike.
Sony’s PlayStation blog has been updated to celebrate the release, stating that there’s something for everyone, regardless of whether you’ve been out of the game for a while, or a fervent fan.
There’s a lot of new content for players to try out upon logging in. The continuation of the main scenario quest line, two new dungeons, one of which will turn your expectations on their head, an epic new raid within Alexander, a fierce new primal threat that promises to delight old-school Final Fantasy fans, new beast tribe quests, and so much more. After players have had a chance to try all of that out, we’ll be introducing Patch 3.21 a few weeks later that will deliver a brand-new PvP experience to Eorzea!
You can through here to see some screenshots of the new content, including the second part of the current endgame raid Alexander: Midas, new dungeons The Antitower and The Lost City Of Amdapor (Hard), as well as an in-depth look at the new Mentor System, which enables veteran players to accommodate new players just starting out in Eorzea as well as providing handy tutorials.
Mountains of new gear, items and crafting recipes have been introduced too, along with a brand new Primal boss battle that pays homage to Final Fantasy VI‘s Warring Triad: Sephirot (not to be confused with Sephiroth), The Fiend.
Final Fantasy XIV receives regular patches around every three months; 2015 saw the release of Heavensward, the MMO’s first expansion. Final Fantasy XIV originally released in 2010 in a much different guise as to its current form. After being put on hiatus from negative fan reception, Square Enix eventually relaunched the title in 2013 as Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn.
