JOURNEY TO THE ‘FIRST WORLD’ ON JULY 2 IN FINAL FANTASY XIV: SHADOWBRINGERS

Details on New Job, Player Race, Raid, and More Revealed at Fan Festival Event

Los Angeles (March 25, 2019) – At the FINAL FANTASY® XIV Fan Festival in Tokyo, Japan, SQUARE ENIX® revealed to 15,000 attendees that the highly anticipated third expansion, Shadowbringers™ will take players to the First World and the realm of Norvrandt. This marks the first time Warriors of Light will journey across dimensions and into a land similar, yet different. Here they must become Warriors of Darkness to restore night and save the world from the apocalypse the Flood of Light promises.

During the event’s keynote, Producer and Director Naoki Yoshida announced numerous new features, including:

  • New Job – Dancer: Dancer joins gunbreaker as one of the new jobs in Shadowbringers. This ranged attacker not only unleashes powerful attacks using throwing weapons, but also performs dances to execute abilities and provide beneficial effects to their party.
