Summer Adventure Brings New Jobs and Playable Race, First Graphical Update and More

London (July 2, 2024) Today, SQUARE ENIX® launched Dawntrail™, the fifth and latest expansion for critically acclaimed MMORPG FINAL FANTASY™ XIV Online on Windows®, PlayStation®5, PlayStation®4, Xbox Series X|S, Mac and Steam®.
FINAL FANTASY XIV: Dawntrail calls players across the glittering seas to the distant continent of Tural, as they embark upon a new adventure with both new and familiar faces—answer the call, seek new horizons, and little by little unravel the mystery of the legendary golden city. Players can view the Dawntrail launch trailer here:


Dawntrail marks the beginning of a new chapter of FINAL FANTASY XIV and the Warrior of Light is poised once more to embark upon the road to adventure. Journey to the distant continent of Tural, explore new areas such as the mountainous region of Urqopacha, the deep forests of Kozama’uka, the rain starved plains of Shaaloani and more as claimants prepare to compete for the throne of the Dawnservant. Eorzea's champion is to accompany Wuk Lamat as her ally in this rite of succession─an endeavor which calls them across the glittering seas.
Two new playable jobs arrive with Dawntrail; viper, a close-range fighter using quick and decisive strikes with two one-handed blades alongside powerful flourishes from a combined two-handed weapon and pictomancer, with brush in hand, weaving the aether of their imagination into the fabric of reality, allowing them to manifest their myriad motifs into living muses. More information on both of the new jobs can be found here:


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!
