Final Fantasy XIV’s Patch 3.4, Soul Surrender, Gets Launch Trailer Ahead Of Release


With the latest content patch for Final Fantasy XIV almost upon us, Square Enix has celebrated its impending release with a launch trailer that highlights all of the new features being added to the MMO next week.

Officially called Soul Surrender, patch 3.4 will wrap up several of the currently ongoing narrative threads introduced with the game’s Heavensward expansion, which was released last year, including a conclusion to the current endgame raid and Ishgard’s war against the dragons.

The third and final part of the Alexander raid – The Creator – is poised to be the set piece of Patch 3.4, bringing players face to face with the gigantic Primal for one final clash to decide the fate of Eorzea. Emerging from the battle victorious will reward you with new endgame gear as well as the ability to attempt the fight again in a more difficult Savage mode that offers even more lucrative rewards should you conquer it.

Accompanying the above will be a new boss trial – Containment Bay P1T6 – which introduces the second member of the so-called ‘Warring Triad’ Primals: Sophia, the Goddess.

Not everything introduced in 3.4 will be world-defining content, though. Several additions to existing features, including new Grand Company ranks, player-owned apartments and aquariums are all shown off in the above trailer, as well as two new dungeons – Xelphatol and The Great Gubal Library (Hard).

Final Fantasy XIV‘s Soul Surrender patch will go live for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and PC on September 27.
