In addition to the features already outlined, the upcoming patch will also introduce a new Trial against Suzaku; the final tier of the Omega raid series; additional content for the Lost Canals of Uznair treasure-hunting instance; and a few other more fluffy updates such as mannequins for housing, the ability to tag housing estates, and new features for the Ceremony of Eternal Bonding.

The latest update has also included a calendar date for Prelude in Violet’s launch, bringing all of the Garlean-centered story content and more on Tuesday, September 18th.

More details and screens can be found on the update’s mini-site and, of course, there’s also that trailer mentioned earlier which can be seen below.

Our Thoughts

While calling this patch “more of the same” might sound like a dig at what’s next, what we really mean is that the consistency and depth of each of Final Fantasy XIV’s patch updates continue to impress. As ever, we’re looking forward to taking a much closer look at all of the things to come with Prelude in Violet. Also, maybe we’ll get some sort of hints about that whole Shadowbringers expansion rumor? Maybe? Probably not, though.
