If you’re like me and still recovering from the emotional devastation of Final Fantasy XIV: Endwalker, take heart; it’s time for a Newfound Adventure. Patch 6.1 Newfound Adventure is the first major content patch for Final Fantasy XIV: Endwalker. In a Live Letter developer presentation, game director Naoki Yoshida revealed details about the patch, including new mounts, new hairstyles, new PvP battles and, of course, a new story.

Newfound Adventure picks up where Endwalker left off. Your friends, the Scions of the Seventh Dawn, have scattered across Eorzea doing their own thing now that they’ve prevented the end of all life in the galaxy. Events conspire to reunite the gang for some good old-fashioned low-stakes adventuring.

While I’m excited by the prospect of my Warrior of Light returning to her dungeon-delving, treasure-hunting roots, I am ever on the lookout for the slightest hint of what might come in the next expansion. In the trailer for Patch 6.1, we hear Y’shtola Rhul hint at her research into how to travel between the different shards or instances of our world. The Live Letter presentation with Yoshida also revealed that we’d be getting new side quests with resident himbo gentleman detective Hildibrand Manderville, who we see wash up on the purple shores of The First. My guess and hope is that future patches — if not the next expansion —might involve traveling to the other versions of Eorzea.
