Final Fantasy XVI The Rising Tide DLC Launches April 18

    Rescue the Dominant of Leviathan the Lost.

    During the Final Fantasy XVI PAX East 2024 panel, Square Enix announced that The Rising Tide DLC will release on April 18 alongside a new update. 

    In The Rising Tide, Clive receives a letter from the Dominant of Leviathan, the long lost Eikon of Water. The Dominant is in need of a rescue, so Clive and the party set out for Mysidia, a hidden land under a blue sky. In this land, they will uncover the tragic history of a forgotten people.

    Final Fantasy XVI players will have access to The Rising Tide DLC once Origin is available as a destination on the world map and the quest “Priceless” is completed. The DLC gives players to a new questline that takes them to Mysidia and other new areas, such as Kairos Gate and the Aire of Hours. New areas means new enemies will be roaming the world, including very dangerous Tonberries. 

    Clive will gain access to new Leviathan Eikon abilities, an increased level cap (Story/Action up to level 60, Final Fantasy Mode level up to 110), and new weapons, such as the Curtana relic weapon from Final Fantasy XIV. Players may obtain the Curtana alongside the “Torn from the Heavens” and “Through the Maelstrom” Orchestrion Rolls by purchasing the Rising Tide or the Final Fantasy XVI Expansion Pass.
