Square Enix Announces Endwalker – The Next Final Fantasy XIV Online Expansion Pack
Square Enix today unveiled Endwalker, the fourth expansion pack for Final Fantasy XIV Online. Scheduled to release Fall 2021 for PC, PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4, Endwalker features the climax of the Hydaelyn and Zodiark story, in which Warriors of Light will encounter an even greater calamity than ever before as they travel to the far reaches of Hydaelyn and even to the moon. In addition to bringing the story arc that began with A Realm Reborn to its conclusion, Endwalker will mark a new beginning for the MMO, setting the stage for new adventures.
Endwalker made its debut during the first-ever “Final Fantasy XIV Announcement Showcase” as Producer and Director Naoki Yoshida presented a new trailer which set the stage for this next chapter. During the showcase, Yoshida also revealed the upcoming PlayStation 5 version of Final Fantasy XIV Online, scheduled to launch into open beta on April 13th. The PS5 version will feature numerous upgrades from the PS4 version, including significantly improved frame rates, faster load times, 4K resolution support and more. Players whose Final Fantasy XIV Online service account has a registered license for the PS4 version may download and play the PS5 Upgrade Version at no extra cost at the start of the open beta period, while new players can experience the game on the PS5 through the Free Trial. The full version of the game will be available on PS5 following the conclusion of the open beta.
Fans can look forward to more information on Endwalker at the Final Fantasy XIV Digital Fan Festival 2021, scheduled for May 14-15, 2021.
