Final Fantasy XIV: Dawntrail – details on new dungeon, jobs, areas, and more

Square Enix gives a tour of the new expansion coming this July.

Hi all – Mark Buckley from the FFXIV PR team here to give you a look at some of the content that we recently showed off at our Dawntrail media tour, which just wrapped up last week!

As we very quickly approach the launch of our fifth expansion, Dawntrail on July 2, we wanted to provide a first look at some of the town and field areas you’ll be exploring, a sneak peek at the level 91 dungeon, and also some footage of Viper and Pictomancer in action!

The adventure our intrepid Warrior of Light is about to embark upon in Dawntrail takes them to the shores of a new continent: Tural! Adventures in Dawntrail begin with a voyage across the Indigo Deep where a visitor from this land seeks your aid in a rite of succession to determine the land’s next ruler, with rumours that events could even lead to the fabled gates of a city of gold…

As you can imagine, there is an awesome amount of new things to experience in Dawntrail but I’d like to take you through some key areas which were showcased during the tour!

New Areas

Tuliyollal 

The city of Tuliyollal marches up the side of a mountain, the path from its coastal harbor to the lofty palace at its summit marked by a profusion of slopes and stairs. Embodying the ideals of the nation with which it shares its name, this ever-bustling metropolis is home to a population drawn from all the lands of Tural.   

Urqopacha

This mountainous region of Yok Tural is inhabited by two peoples of vastly different stature: the child-sized Pelupelu, and the gargantuan Yok Huy. Such disparities, however, shrink into insignificance before the brooding majesty of Worqor Zormor, the tallest peak in Tural.

Kozama’uka

To the south of Tuliyollal stretch the verdant forests of Kozama’uka. Rivers great and small flow from mountains to the west and pour into the region, creating breathtaking waterfalls. Although the peoples which inhabit the region resemble goblins and the Vanu Vanu, they have each built unique cultures within this vast wilderness. 

Dungeon: Ihuykatumu

We also showed off the level 91 dungeon as part of the Dawntrail media tour. While we don’t want to spoil why Warriors of Light will travel here, needless to say the entire dungeon looks gorgeous, and even starts with a cruise down a jungle river!

Face challenging new dungeons and unprecedented threats. With perils and pitfalls at every turn, it will take steadfast unity and careful coordination to emerge victorious.

New Jobs

Arriving with Dawntrail are two brand new jobs, Viper and Pictomancer! Read on for a taste of what to expect when you can play these jobs on July 2!

Viper

The viper’s close-range fighting style, passed down by Turali hunters for generations, uses quick and decisive strikes with two one-handed blades alongside powerful flourishes from a combined two-handed weapon. Once a foe is weakened, they empower themselves with the strength of their ancestors to deliver a powerful and decisive finishing blow.

Pictomancer

With brush in hand, a pictomancer weaves the aether of their imagination into the fabric of reality, allowing them to manifest their myriad motifs into living muses. Yet every work of art takes time to perfect, and thus their palettes are ever prepared with a colorful arsenal of instant-cast abilities and spells.

New Playable Race – Female Hrothgar

The Hrothgar people hail from Ilsabard. A Turali people with shared ancestry, the Xbr’aal, call Yak T’el home. 

Females number relatively few among the population, but are readily identified by their lithe, muscular forms. Equally distinctive is their predisposition for leadership.

First major graphical update

The game’s first major graphical overhaul adds a host of visual improvements, including enhanced texture and shadow resolution, and improved material qualities for characters and environments. Experience the world of Eorzea and beyond like never before! We’re positive all of these updates will look stunning on the PlayStation 5, and we can’t wait for you to experience it for yourselves!

We can’t wait to see you in Tural!
