FFXIV's Final Fantasy Tactics heavy patch will be out on October 10

0

Let's recap what's in it

By way of the latest Final Fantasy XIV Liveletter, we now know that patch 4.1 will launch on October 10. As we know it'll feature a huge 24-person (casual) raid themed around Final Fantasy Tactics, as well as a new dungeon, more story content, sidequests, another EX primal fight, job alterations, another housing district (the Japan inspired Shirogane), and a lot more.

There won't be a whole lot for hardcore players though, as this is mostly a catch-up patch for folks who haven't cleared Neo. An Ultimate Savage difficulty is being added shortly after the launch of 4.1, which will showcase a brand new tough-as-nails encounter, but it's just that sole fight, and it only provides weapons on the same item level as Neo itself. In other words, you'll have to wait until 4.2 until the next raid tier, as is customary.

Either way I'm stoked to see more Stormblood content. So far it seems to have longer legs than Heavensward.
