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.

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.

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.

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.

Slaying monsters are nothing new the fearless hunters of the New World but Behemoth is unlike any they have seen before. Going up against him will need you to come up with finest tactics and reliable teamwork. Of course, strategies are the key here but that doesn't mean that you shouldn't worry about your weapons and item loadouts. Your well planned best defenses may fall apart by his relentless mighty attacks after he locks target on you with enmity, its wrathful gaze.

Players would be wise to aim for his head and try to block or evade his big hits to save up health. A few support-focused teammates wielding weapon types like Sword & Shield, Light Bowgun or Hunting Horn can really come in handy in this particular case. Someone with Health Boost and Wide-Range, similar to skills from Lunastra armor set can also be very useful in your squad. Keep an eye around and watch out from Behemoth making his ultimate move, Ecliptic Meteor to cause an instant faint!

Another renowned giant Rathalos from Monster Hunter: World will invade the Final Fantasy XIV world during this cross-promotional event at a later date, which will be revealed soon. Although yet not released on PC, developer/publisher Capcom has already managed to make a ton of cash with their sixth main installment from Monster Hunter series, which not only became the fastest-selling game on their history but also turn out to be a best-seller as well by only releasing it on PS4 and XBox One.

Previously, MHW entered in similar timed events with Capcom games and other third-party titles like Devil May Cry, Horizon Zero Dawn, Mega Man and Street Fighter. However, crossing over with something as big as Final Fantasy is surely an extravaganza for fans of the franchise. Besides, this collaboration event is long due because producer Ryozo Tsujimoto of MHW and director Naoki Yoshida of FFXIV have envisioned something like this back in 2011 while focusing on their own projects.

Each game will have a guest monster appearing from the other for epic confrontation that offers some sweet rewards. Players of Final Fantasy XIV will be taking on legendary beast Rathalos from MHW in a quest called The Great Hunt. Taking down Rathalos will earn you a unique armor set and a mount themed on the monster. There is a standard challenge in The Great Hunt, which allows up to eight players and the extreme one lets only four to take part in facing him.

Players are to complete Stormblood expansion's main scenario and reach level 70 before they can access this brand-new content of update 4.36. Aside from gear and cosmetics, the patch includes Palico and Poogie minions. Behemoth from FFXIV will invade the world of Monster Hunter on August 1st, for them to try and take him down. This is a great idea for crossover because both of these Japanese RPGs have giant beast boss battles and they even share a similar visual style.

Released in January 26 of this year for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, Monster Hunter: World has been one of the greatest success for publisher so far. Just as they promised to arrange some crossover events with other popular titles, Capcom has already done that by tying-in with first -party games Devil May Cry, Mega Man and Street Fighter as well as Horizon Zero Dawn, which was a third-party release. Also, the game will be making its PC debut on August 9, two days after the update drops.
