Final Fantasy XIV: Endwalker Expansion Announced

In a previously scheduled Final Fantasy XIV Showcase event, developer/publisher Square Enix officially announces upcoming fourth expansion pack for massively multiplayer online role-playing game Final Fantasy XIV, titled Endwalker.

Delayed from its summer release window due to COVID-19 pandemic, FFXIV expansion is set to launch in fall 2021. Unable to celebrate annual Fan Festival events in person this year, Square Enix reveals a first-look at Endwalker expansion.

An epic teaser trailer for FFXIV: Endwalker made worldwide premier earlier during Final Fantasy Showcase.

Endwalker is finally drawing an anticipated conclusion to Hydaelyn and Zodiark story arc while a new threat is slowly on the rise. Warriors of Light returns and is about to face an even greater challenge you saw in past than Shadowbringers.

Alisaie and Alphinaud show up briefly in the middle of an intense fight, the latter has most likely changed jobs for now. FFXIV protagonist has finally overcome his darkness and is seen wearing a shiny Paladin armor, stepping on the moon.
