    Square Enix reveals new details about the upcoming Version 7.0 update for Final Fantasy XIV and the Dawntrail expansion, which launches in summer 2024. Fans can expect a substantial level cap increase, new jobs, and so much more.

    In Final Fantasy XIV: Dawntrail, players will embark on a new adventure in the continent of Tural, which is commonly known as the “New World.” Erenville and the Scions of the Seventh Dawn will join the Warrior of Light into this new land, but a new “contest” will divide the Scions into two opposing groups. Players must adapt to the unfamiliar terrain, make new allies, and discover the truth behind the conflict for the Mamool Ja throne in the new expansion.
