Music is such a huge part of this game
[Update: As an extra bonus, Square Enix has uploaded a music video for Blinding Indigo from The Primals, the theme song of the Leviathan raid boss in the Shadowbringers expansion. It, like the Endwalker theme, is also isolated audio without background sound effects and such: you can watch that below! If you’re curious, you can watch the fight here.]
Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn has a huge focus on music. Huge!
It drives so many of the boss battles, and adds a ton of flavor to the game as a whole. Hardcore fans look forward to hearing a new boss or raid theme just as much as the encounters themselves, at times. That’s why it’s such good news that Square Enix finally put out a version of the Endwalker expansion theme without background noise.
Previously folks were listening to it via the presentation stream video, which was full of noise from the actual trailer. But thanks to a tweet from Square Enix directly, you can listen to the isolated audio yourself. Check it out below.
Another added bonus of the video? It’s informative!
Clocking in at just under two minutes and 50 seconds, you can get a bird’s eye view of the entire expansion pitch. It goes through everything from the new story content, to the two dungeon teases, to the PS5 beta and the enhancements therein.
