Today Square Enix released a batch of screenshots showcasing the upcoming 4.1 update of Final Fantasy XIV, dubbed “The Legend Returns“.
First of all, we get to see the first look at the “Return to Ivalice” 24-man raid, which will bring us to the lost city of Rabanastre. if that sounds familiar, it’s intended.
Secondly, we get a look at the super-challenging Unending Coil of Bahamut (Ultimate mode). Moving to radically less challenging content, the screenshots also show the ability to bring our adventurer squadrons in instanced dungeons. We’ll even be able to change the looks of their equipment, while the level cap will be raised.
Three new mounts will also be added, alongside two emotes (talking and boxing), two hairstyles, and three minions.
In addition to that, we’ll also be able to register friends across worlds, and send them tells. Last but not least, bards will get the ability to actually play musical instruments.
