Final Fantasy XIV patch 5.1 trailer features NieR: Automata crossover

FF XIV 5.1 x NieR 2B

Square Enix has released a trailer showcasing the latest update for their online RPG Final Fantasy XIV. The 5.1 update follows up on the acclaimed Shadowbringers expansion with an exciting crossover featuring the stars of PlatinumGames' dystopian release NieR Automata. I'm reliably informed that the video contains spoilers for Shadowbringers, so heads up if you're yet to complete said content.

The dramatically-titled "Vows of Virtue, Deeds of Cruelty" trailer offers a glimpse at Version 5.1 of the MMORPG, currently in its ninth year (if you include the original launch and the 2013 reboot A Realm Reborn.) The video includes an appearance of NieR Automata protagonist 2B, the battle android who made more than a name for herself following the release of the sci-fi hack 'n' slash adventure.

The Version 5.1 update will include the NieR themed raid - titled "Yorha: Dark Apocalypse" - as well as a New Game Plus mode, for those who wish to battle back through the previous scenarios. Also being added in the new update are "Fellowships", in-game chat servers which will facilitate players looking to party up for raids, organise events, or simply hang out. The update is expected to arrive in-game on October 29.

Final Fantasy XIV is available now on PS4 and PC.
