Last weekend brought some exciting announcements for Final Fantasy XIV. Most of the reveals were centred on Endwalker, the game’s next expansion, but Square Enix also gave a release date for the last major patch of Shadowbringers during the latest Live Letter stream.
Patch 5.5, titled “Death Unto Dawn”, will follow a similar format to previous x.5 patches — the majority of content will be available from April 13 when of 5.5 releases, but the main story will be split into two parts.
Part 2 is scheduled for late May, and will cover the events that happen directly before Endwalker’s story.
Notable content being added to 5.5 includes the finale of both YoRHa: Dark Apocalypse and the Sorrow of Werlyt questline, the latter including a climactic trial against Diamond Weapon.
Final Fantasy XIV: Endwalker is set to release this Autumn, which leaves a four month gap at least after the release of Patch 5.5 Part 2. If you happened to miss the announcement showcase on Saturday, head on over to our breakdown of everything that was revealed for the upcoming expansion.
