Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers Gets New Dungeon Crawl Trailer, Artwork, Patch Note Reading and More

Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers gets a new dungeon trailer, artwork, 5.0 patch notes reading, and more prior to the expansion's launch.

The official Final Fantasy XIV Twitter account posted several new status updates today, which showcase quite a bit about the upcoming expansion Shadowbringers launching officially on July 2nd. The first major reveal is a dungeon crawler trailer that gives us a first look at the upcoming dungeons:

Next we have a status update revealing a piece of gorgeous artwork the art team created to celebrate the expansion pack. Furthermore, the tweet states that the team will be releasing new art each day until launch, which means more lovely artwork such as this to gawk at:

The Twitter account also announced a new Shadowbringers 5.0 patch notes reading on June 27th at 19:00 JST, a day before early access. The livestream will feature special guest Yuichi Nakamura, the voice actor of Thancred Waters:

All in all, the official Final Fantasy XIV is doing its best to drop as much info before the Shadowbringers‘ launch, which is great news for fans.

During E3 2019, a new launch trailer dropped after Producer Naoki Yashida spoke onstage, setting the tone for the story. Not to mention that it will be introducing the new classes Gunbreaker and Dancer, as well as the new (and gender-locked) races Viera and Hrothgar. It was also revealed that Final Fantasy XIV has a playerbase of 16 million prior to the expansion.

Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers will be coming out for PS4 and PC.
