Square Enix is going to have a busy couple of weeks. On February 1st they’re releasing Final Fantasy XII on PC. A few days before that The Lost Sphear launches. And also around that time will come the next update for Final Fantasy XIV. Update 4.2 is called “Rise of a New Sun”, and will feature many updates for the game. To celebrate its imminent launch, Square Enix released a plethora of new screenshots (which you can view in a gallery here).
As for what you can expect from it, there’s going to be a new mode called The Feast, this will take place in the Crystal Tower Training Grounds. You’ll team up with 5 other people and fight in Ranked Matches with others. There will also be a new beast tribe subquest line, a new glamour dresser, new mounts to get, as well as the ability to build a submersible and dive underwater to look for treasure.
A release date for the update will likely come very soon.
