Final Fantasy XIV: Endwalker Launches This November
SQUARE ENIX announced today that Endwalker™, the fourth expansion for its critically acclaimed MMO, FINAL FANTASY XIV Online, will launch on 23rd November, 2021 and is now available for pre-order. Producer & Director Naoki Yoshida revealed the release date, alongside new information about upcoming content in the expansion, during the opening keynote address at the Digital Fan Festival 2021.
The full cinematic Endwalker trailer also debuted during the digital event, which includes a new theme song composed by Masayoshi Soken with vocals by Sam Carter from the chart-topping band Architects.
The second job that will be introduced with Endwalker is the ‘reaper’—a scythe-wielding melee DPS job who summon avatars while fighting in close-quarter combat. A first look at the reaper in action can be seen below:
Additionally, male Viera will be added as a new playable race, joining the existing female Viera. The male Viera reveal trailer can be watched below:
