To kick off the European Fan Festival for Final Fantasy XIV , loads of information about the upcoming expansion Stormblood has been revealed by producer and director Naoki Yoshida.
Before anything else, here’s the brand new full trailer:
As seen in the new trailer, it highlights the 2nd new job aside from Red Mage, which is the Samurai for DPS. Samurais wield katana and use the same equipment as Monks; they can be learned at the starting level of 50 and no starting class is required.
The new city state of Doma can be seen in the trailer, heavy on the influence of traditional Far Eastern architecture. The tale continues on its liberation under Garlean Rule, so it’s in a similar situation as Ala Mhigo. Within its territory is the port city of Kugane among others.
A new beast tribe has been unveiled namely the Kojin. They worship the newest primal for XIV, Susano, who happens to be the 2nd original primal for the mainline as well right after Ravana.
More new areas and fields were further shown (screens were taken from a LQ stream so pardon the quality):
A new residential area, Shirogane, has also been revealed and it naturally looks under the influence of the Far-Eastern inspired city state of Doma.
Lastly, legendary series composer Nobuo Uematsu has finally announced and shared a preview of Stormblood‘s theme song as a follow up to “Answers” and “Dragonsong”, titled as “Revolutions”. It will be sang by Susan Calloway once again and the song is described to be about humanity, weakness, and strength.
Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood is due for release on June 20th 2017.
