Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood Official Screenshots and Art Show Red Mage, Swimming, Lakshmi and More

on December 23, 2016 10:42 PM

After unveiling several new features coming with Final Fantasy XIV‘s new expansion Stormblood, Square Enix followed up with a press kit including official screenshots and artwork.

We get to see more of the newly announced Red Mage job, the new primal Lakshmi, Omega Weapon, and of the new water content that includes swimming, diving and meeting a new beast tribe, the Ananta.

We also get a better look at the digital bonuses coming with the physical and digital Collector’s Editions, including a Syldra Mount, a Wind-Up Bartz Minion from Final Fantasy V and a Red Mage main arm  named “Chicken Knife.”

Last, but definitely not least, you can speculate on the logo of the upcoming 24-man raid “Return to Ivalice,” that will be written by Final Fantasy XII and Final Fantasy Tactics Director Yasumi Matsuno.

I’m sure I’m not the only one finding it rather funny that it’s almost Christmas and we get swimsuit shots from a feature that involves swimming and diving. I guess Final Fantasy XIV has gone all southern hemisphere-like, for once.

You can check them all out in the gallery below, and you can read all the details shared today about Stormblood in our keynote recap post.

Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood will launch worldwide on June 20th, 2017, and will be the second expansion of Square Enix’s successful MMORPG. It was announced back in October. You can read more details shared back then, on top of enjoying the gorgeous cinematic trailer by Visual Works.
