Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers Expansion Announced

FFXIV Fan Festival reveals new teaser of upcoming Shadowbringers expansion pack for Final Fantasy XIV.

Back in August, massively multiplayer online role-playing game Final Fantasy XIV from the popular Final Fantasy franchise made a crossover with action role-playing game Monster Hunter: World from Capcom in a collaboration event.

Today, in the festive mode of FFXIV Fan Fest in Las Vegas, developer/publisher Square Enix took the stage for director/producer Naoki Yoshida to announce the upcoming third expansion pack, Shadowbringers for the popular MMORPG.

We invite you to witness this brand-new, action-packed teaser trailer heralding the darkness that will arrive in early summer 2019 with Shadowbringers.

The teaser revolves around the battle-worn protagonist having flashbacks of past events and battles where he drew his Gunblade against monstrous creatures. Questions regarding the Warrior of Light and Warrior of Darkness still remain unanswered for a later time.

For those who want to re-experience the story of FFXIV all over again will not have to make a new character to do that. A new game plus option will let you revisit main quests and job quests once again to relive the fantastic plot of the game.

The expansion seems promising enough for fans to enjoy long after the release of Stormblood now. Like any other previous update, version 5.0 is about to bring an extensive story, new level cap raise from 70 to 80 and several new jobs.

Players are now free to fight back the evil Garlean Empire as Ala Mhigo and Doma are rescued in Stormblood expansion. Of course there will be new areas to discover, new beast tribes, dungeons and much more.

The Blue Mage job has been a part of the fantasy universe since Final Fantasy V and FFXIV is not going any further from the tradition of the series. However, this will be a limited job that comes with update 4.5, which is long before the release of the expansion.

Instead of learning through level progression, players will learn job actions from monsters through combat. Blue Mage will begin from a level cap of 50 and the release of Shadowbringers will increase the number with new patches.

RELATED: Final Fantasy Legacy Collection Announced

This job is unique and unlike the other jobs that isn't linked to any class from the game. You might also want to take a look at the reveal, so here it is.




RELATED: Final Fantasy VII Remake Comes Before 2023

An unknown new playable race has been announced without giving any details but given the dramatic camera zoom focus on Yoshida's t-shirt with a photo of Bugs Bunny on a motorcycle; we believe they are teasing the Viera race of humanoid rabbits from Final Fantasy Tactics Advance to include.

Finally, the game allows you to travel to your friend even if they are playing on a different server. From main cities like Ul’dah, New Gridania and Limsa Lominsa, you can teleport to other worlds. More details on Shadowbringers expansion will follow when they are out.

PlayStation Plus Free Games for November 2018

PlayStation Plus free games lineup has picked up Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition and Yakuza Kiwami for the month of November 2018.

Hope you are having a blast this Halloween whether trick or treating or just lazily sitting around playing video games, which is probably your favorite thing to do, right? We are at the endgame of the year 2018 and November seems to be very promising (for now).

Last month, not everyone was impressed with survival horror title Friday the 13th: The Game and futuristic sports game Laser League. So, a new free games lineup of this month for PlayStation Plus subscribers has been carefully chosen this time.

PlayStation Plus Free Games for November 2018

Before we just jump into the PS Plus lineup, let's take a quick look at the short clip below showcasing all the titles for November 2018.




The very first game we got our hands onto is a first-person shooter titled Bulletstorm from People Can Fly and Epic Games that Electronic Arts had the Publishing rights to. You can play it in both solo and co-op mode in a 26th century setup.

Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition gets you all the exclusive content of the game for a definitive experience. Players will take the role of Grayson Hunt, who runs a black ops team called the Dead Echo and on a mission to either seek payback or survive.

Next up is a remake of the first game from the acclaimed action-adventure Yakuza series, Yakuza Kiwami from Sega and Deep Silver. Originally released on PlayStation 3, the game was later launched on PlayStation 4 in 2016 and now is visually enhanced for 4K.

The game follows the story of Kazuma Kiryu, who is known as the Dragon of Dojima and he takes the fall for a murder of a crime boss at the hands of his friend. When he finally comes out ten years later, he discovers himself in the middle of a mess.

Some more free games from PlayStation Plus lineup for the month of November 2018 is still there and let's take a quick look at the list below.

  • Jackbox Party Pack 2 (PlayStation 3)
  • Arkedo Series (PlayStation 3)
  • Burly Men At Sea (Cross Buy with PlayStation Vita and PlayStation 4)
  • Roundabout (Cross Buy with PlayStation Vita and PlayStation 4)

If the Battle Royale genre interests you and you don't mind playing H1Z1 (because this is clearly not PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, nor even Fortnite) then we recommend you get the PlayStation Plus Blueshift Pack with goodies for free until November 13.

Hopefully, Bulletstorm and Yakuza Kiwami will be able to sustain you for the month or long enough till games like Battlefield V, Fallout 76 and Spyro Remastered Trilogy comes out and makes you completely forget everything else.

More than half the year is over and PlayStation Plus has been treating their fans with some really good games. In September, players had fun with online multiplayer first-person shooter Destiny 2 and action-adventure hack and slash game God of War III Remastered.

Our first pick of the month is a survival horror title Friday the 13th: The Game from IllFonic and Gun Media. Up to seven players can take part in the game with one of them controlling iconic slasher-genre villain Jason Voorhees while the others try to survive from him.

Banded up in a group of six teenage counselors at Camp Crystal Lake, you either try to escape and run from him or try to fight back the masked killer as a team before he hunts each one of you down. The choice is up to you.

Next up in our list is a futuristic sports game titled Laser League from developer Roll7 and publisher 505 Games. This one is released only months ago for major available platforms after initially debuting in 2017 via Early Access.

Players will start it as a fun experience to play with your reflexes and will quickly escalate into a struggle where strategic movement as a team is required. Even though it is not like one of those AAA-titles or anything like that, you can still enjoy it to have a decent time.

Grand Theft Auto V Court Ban on Cheat Mods

Court issues order for Take-Two Interactive to ban any program used for illegal mods and cheating on GTA.

It has been five years since controversial action-adventure video game Grand Theft Auto V has been released and by now developer/publisher Rockstar Games have seen a lot success including the game doing extremely well in terms of sales and had their fair share of debates. The latest piece of quarrel is regarding a court order to shut down illegal mods that allow players to perform cheats in GTA V and Grand Theft Auto Online when playing the PC version of the game.

A Georgia resident named David Zipperer has been selling two mods by the name Absolute and Menyoo for some time now. Back in March, Rockstar Games has sued Zipperer with an allegation of infringing their copyright properties and violating terms of use of the game. The preliminary injunction won by parent company of the developers of GTA V, Take-Two Interactive bans him from selling those two mods and forbids creating any more unoriginal works for the title.

RELATED: Grand Theft Auto 5 is Most Profitable Entertainment Product Ever

What Absolute and Menyoo does is allowing players to alter a several number of in-game constraints, which makes the devs unhappy and uncomfortable. For single-player version of the game on PC, these mods are still available on various other hosting. However, it costs money when you try to use them GTA Online, multiplayer mode of GTA V. The mods will allow anyone to generate nearly unlimited amount of in-game currency that Rockstar Games sells to people for real money.

It hurts the developers because; this move has taken a significant toll on the quarterly revenue of Take-Two following the launch of GTA Online in 2013. They complained that mods created by Zipperer had cost them a minimum of $500,000 while damaged their reputation to legit players who couldn't keep up with cheaters and eventually quit playing after a time. Reportedly, upon receiving threat of taking legal action from Take-Two, makers of those mods had shut down their sites.
