New trailer shows off Final Fantasy XIV 2.2 update


To be patched in preparation for the upcoming PlayStation 4 port

With the PlayStation 4 release just weeks away, Square Enix shared a video detailing some of the changes being made in the upcoming version 2.2 content patch for their flagship MMORPG, Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. Titled Through the Maelstrom, the update comes packed with  new dungeons, boss battles and more, in addition to the new hard-mode runs for select locations. A full list of changes can be found on the official site

The patch will go live on Thursday, March 27th, but a live-streaming event is scheduled for Friday, March 21st at 2:30 AM Pacific and will feature a Q&A session with the game's Producer & Director, Yoshi-P. Questions can be submitted directly via Twitter with instructions included at the link listed above.

I've yet to really sit down with the game, and while I admit I'm not exactly the biggest fan of massive-multiplayer titles that require you to pay for subscriptions, Final Fantasy XIV has managed to pique my interest a bit. If anyone has had an opportunity to sit down and play the PlayStation 4 beta, I'd love to hear your thoughts, though I'm not expecting to be swayed. I like that sense of finality and closure that comes with beating a game and being able to walk away. Somehow, I doubt Final Fantasy XIV would ever deliver that.
