To kick off the Final Fantasy XIV Fan Fest, players and fans alike were presented with a treat. The newest expansion to the acclaimed MMO has been announced. Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood is making the rounds, and below we’ve got the teaser trailer for your viewing pleasure as we anticipate the upcoming expansion. You can watch Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood teaser trailer below!
This time, we see the Warrior of Light don the class of Monk, as he takes on a new role for the expansion. Like the previous videos saw the Warrior of Light as an Archer, Warrior, and Dragoon, it seems that this time the expansion will feature Monks as the main class.
We see a mysterious woman clad in red, fighting against the Warrior of Light, who seems to have gotten an upgrade in the looks department.
We get glimpses of Ala Mhigo, the new setting for the expansion as well.
We don’t know who the mysterious woman is yet, but it seems we will have some insight into her in the patches before the expansion. Similar to Yugiri’s reveal.
The trailer shows flashy Monk style fighting in the Final Fantasy caliber that we all know and appreciate. It’s a gorgeous trailer giving us insight into just how big Ala Mhigo is. For those concerned about the area being just dry desert, the trailer shows off lush greenery in the background, as well as different terrain types. It’s a HUGE area just ripe and ready to explore.
We get a chance to see some of the natives of Ala Mhigo, the Chocobo’s and their Barding, cannons at the ready and more. The main focus of the Stormblood expansion will be to take back control of Ala Mhigo from the Empire.
While we wait to hear more about new jobs and possible new races and classes, those of us who aren’t at the Fan Fest can take solace in enjoying the newest trailer for the next expansion for FFXIV… Stormblood.
