Today Square Enix released a new batch of screenshots of Final Fantasy XIV’s update 4.2, which will be titled “Rise of a New Sun“.

The screenshots let us take a look at the two new dungeons that will be implemented in the game. The first is Hell’s Lid, while the second is The Fractal Continuum hard mode. it’s worth mentioning for the sake of those who aren’t familiar with the game, that hard mode dungeons in Final Fantasy XIV don’t just up the difficulty and target level, but they basically are full-fledged sequels of their normal mode counterpart. They feature overhauled visuals and completely new encounters.

We also see the gear that we’ll earn by beating those dungeons, and no one says no to new shinies.

The update doesn’t have a firm release date just yet, but we do know that it’ll come in January, bringing along a ton more features and content, including more story progression.

You can check out the screenshots in the gallery. If you want to learn more about the game, you can also enjoy our recent interview with Naoki Yoshida and our review of the Stormblood expansion.

Final Fantasy XIV is currently available for PS4 and PC, while the old PS3 version has gone the way of the dodo last summer.
