He discusses a recover of Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood as good as a annual Fan Festival Events, that take place 3 times a year. He’s also common some teasers on what fans can design of Final Fantasy XIV in 2018.
“Hello there, everyone. Producer and Director Yoshi-P here to wish we all a Happy New Year!
2017 was a illusory year. The recover of a second expansion, Stormblood, was a good success, and we’ve seen some-more players online than ever before,” a director’s summary reads before he interjection players for their support, faithfulness and patronage.

In expectation of Patch 4.2—Rise of a New Sun, a preview site is adult that shares sum about a categorical scenario, important side quests and dual dungeons (Hells’ Lid and The Fractal Continuum (Hard)).
The categorical unfolding continues a Ala Mhigo tract of Stormblood. “Yet there is no rest for a Scions of a Seventh Dawn, for a winds of difficulty are floating from a Far East, where an astonishing hint threatens to set a firewood of disharmony ablaze. Can Doma tarry a brewing firestorm to acquire a light of a new day?”
Meanwhile, a side story quests for Patch 4.2 core around a Jade Stoa. “Legend tells of a unequaled samurai who, during a insistence of a king, ventured onward to expostulate a horde of oni into a sea. Yet for all his strength, Tenzen could not do this alone, and so he incited to a Four Lords─greatest of a auspices─for assistance. Together they succeeded, and thereafter journeyed west, distant from a realms of men, to live out their days in solitude,” a central site states.

But Fan Festivals aren’t a usually large eventuality a Final Fantasy XIV group is planning: “In fact, I’ve already staid on skeleton for another eventuality over a year from now. we advise gripping a demeanour out for destiny announcements to find out what it is,” pronounced Yoshida.
Finally, Yoshida common a small in-game teaser:
“Strange… we was awaiting maybe another ancient Eastern proverb, or even a thoroughfare from a diary of a late Archon Louisoix. What could this meant for a destiny of a realm? we suspect we can usually assume until a law reveals itself,” he said.
