This preview is based on play of an in-development build of FINAL FANTASY XIV: Shadowbringers, and content in the final version is subject to change.
Final Fantasy XIV’s newest expansion, Shadowbringers, is upon us with the official release on July 2nd and early access on June 28th for those that pre-ordered. I attended the North America press event in San Francisco and got a few hours with the gameplay demo. Aside from the intriguing story elements about becoming the Warrior of Darkness, this expansion has a ton of interesting changes and updates that I believe all types of players will be happily surprised by.
In Shadowbringers, we have two new jobs to pick from: the gunbreaker and the dancer. The former is a new tank job that is built around the fan favorite gunblade, while the latter is a DPS job – one of many classic Final Fantasy jobs that had yet to be added to the MMO. I tried out both but I spent a majority of my time with the gunbreaker because let’s be honest, the gunblade is just so badass.
