Kefka Teased for Final Fantasy XIV's Next Update

Final Fantasy XIV update 4.2

Square Enix's Final Fantasy 30th Anniversary Exhibition is being held as a way to reflect back on the storied history of the franchise, by giving both new and longstanding fans a detailed look at the series' origins and past. That was Kefka at the end of the trailer, and we have no idea what he's doing there.

New Raid Dungeon - The next arc in the Omega raid series, Omega: Sigmascape arrives to test the Warrior of Light's limits even further.

Final Fantasy VII Remake was rumored to be released in 2017 early in the year, but nothing came of the rumors.

New Trial - Meet one of The Four Lords, Byakko, in this challenging new Trial kicking off a fresh series of side quests.

As for the combat, the studio has confirmed that they have ditched the turn-based combat in favor of action based combat.

Although the latest pieces of concept art photographed by "junshen" don't include any of the main protagonists or antagonists like Cloud or Sephiroth, it's still cool to see some of the foundational materials that are being used as reference points for artists and designers to build the Final Fantasy 7 Remake's world.


Glamour Dressers - Convert equipment, weapons, and tools into glamours at inns and combine them into a complete ensemble for convenient customization of player outfits.

Also up in the 4.2 update is a new player vs. player map called Crystal Tower Training Grounds, a venue for a "grand melee".

A New Duty Recorder Feature - Analyze raid encounters from multiple viewpoints to improve tactics or relive your greatest battles with this new video playback feature. Patch 4.2 launches on January 30, 2018.

Housing Updates - New wards and neighborhoods will be added to each of the four residential areas.

Square Enix held a Letter from the Producer presentation for MMORPG Final Fantasy XIV and its most recent expansion, Stormblood, detailing the numerous changes and additions coming with Patch 4.2.

The most exciting aspect of this update is its heavy focus on Final Fantasy VI, with appearances from the Phantom Train and everyone's favorite villain, Kefka.
