Today Square Enix released a new gallery of screenshots of Final Fantasy XIV‘s upcoming update 4.2 titled “Rise of a New Sun,” that will be released at the end of this month.

First of all, we see a new minigame that will be implemented in the Gold Saucer, named Fashion Report. A mysterious masked man will challenge adventurers to satisfy his fashion-related requests.

We also get to see the new interface for the recently-added bard performances, including new tones for piano, lute, and fiddle instruments, granting players even more creative freedom.

Last, but certainly not least, we see three new mounts, the kamuy, the true griffon, and the magitek death claw.

You can check the screenshots out in the gallery below, and in case you missed them, those from the previous release. If you want to learn more about Final Fantasy XIV, 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.
