Patch 5.35 lands October 13, headlined by a new “Save the Queen” chapter created by Final Fantasy Tactics and Final Fantasy XII‘s designer Yasumi Matsuno. Included in the update is the Bozjan Southern Front, a new area where players can fight to improve weapons and gear.

Final Fantasy XIV 5.4 introduces a new adventure and quest lines picking up after 5.3 ended. On top of that, it adds the third chapter to the Eden raid and a new chapter to the “Sorrow of Werlyt” scenario, including the Emerald Weapon trial.

The Restoration of the Holy See quest will get its final chapter in 5.4.

Outside of quests, there’s a new dungeon to explore: Matoya’s Relict. Players can brave the depths with friends, as usual, or explore with NPCs thanks to the Trust system.

If that’s not enough challenge, Level 80 or higher adventurers can take on a souped-up primal to earn “unique prizes.”

Blue Mages are getting a hefty update to make them more viable in these challenges and in general. New blue magic and equipment are part of that update, along with an increase in the level cap.

Last up for FFXIV patch 5.4 is Explorer Mode. It’s Shadowbringers‘ photo mode for dungeons, letting players go through dungeons in Shadowbringers to find the best photo ops without worrying about enemies.

And for those who haven’t tried FFXIV yet, the game is now free to play up through the end of Heavensword.

Finally, Naoki Yoshida said Square-Enix plans on supporting Final Fantasy XIV for PlayStation 4 on PlayStation 5. Players can use the in-game PS4 Pro display options for enhanced visuals, and the PS5 itself will cut load times. Stay tuned to GameSkinny for more Final Fantasy XIV news as it develops.
