Final Fantasy XIV’s newest expansion Dawntrail, which was revealed at Fan Fest, is almost here and players are now getting the last bits of information about the end of Endwalker patch content with a special Live Letter. The 6.5x patch series will introduce the beginning of the new story that is coming with Dawntrail. 

FFXIV’s Letter from the Producer Live took place at the Tokyo Game Show, where producers shared more information about what players can expect with the newest patch content, including new story, Trials, Dungeons, Alliance Raids, Variant Dungeons, Island Sanctuary upgrades, and more.

For those that couldn’t stay up super late to watch the showcase, here is everything that was announced during the FFXIV Live Letter from the Producers 79. The patch also got a release date of Oct. 3, just over a week from the date of the Live Letter.
