Today Square Enix released a large batch of screenshots showcasing the upcoming update 3.3 for Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, dubbed “Revenge of the Horde.”

We also get some info on the patch itself:

The Final Steps of Faith

The great steps which marked a journey’s beginning shall now mark its end as the Warrior of Light enters into a final confrontation with the great wyrm Nidhogg. Steel will clash against fang and furious flames. But when the dust settles, only the victor will decide the fate of man, dragon, and the broken bonds that once united them.

The Weeping City of Mhach

Deep in the Yafaem Saltmoor lie the ruins of the fabled city of Mhach─acivilization of the Fifth Astral Era whose prosperity was built upon unparalleled magicks of destruction. It is to this ancient edifice, and its vaults of occult secrets, that you and the Redbills plan your next foray.

Beast Tribe Quests

In ages past, Zenith stood proudly in the Churning Mists as a testament to the bond between man and dragon. Alas, this once great sanctuary now lies in ruin. Though its remains are lost to the wilds, the moogles who call this land home would fulfill an age-old pact with Hraesvelgr to see the great wyrm’s home restored to its former glory.

New Mounts & Minions

Take flight over the snowy peaks of Coerthas, or take a romantic trip through night skies on a mount made for two.

A lively assortment of new minions have made their way to Eorzea. From primals to prominent characters, these mini-caricatures are the perfect companions for your journey.

New Hairstyles

No outfit is complete without the right hairstyle, and a new fashion craze is sweeping Eorzea! Enjoy a new selection of dashing hairstyles that give both men and women a bold yet beautiful look.

New Emotes

With a wink and a smile, or perhaps even a merry moogle dance, these new emotes will add a touch of whimsy to your character.

Raid Finder

Players can now be matched automatically with other players to challenge the hardest encounters Eorzea has to offer. Including options to match with other experienced players or practice groups, finding comrades in arms has never been easier.

New Crafting Recipes

Ready your sewing needles and hammers for a new set of recipes to create crafter and gatherer gear!

Update 3.3  will release on June 7th, but without further ado, I leave you with the screenshots:

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
