As for Patch 5.55 – which will be the final major update before FF14’s Endwalker expansion is released on November 23, 2021 – some of the new content includes Part 2 of the Death Unto Dawn main scenario, Save the Queen updates, YoRHa: Dark Apocalypse epilogue quests, and a reward for collecting all Triple Triad cards.

The team also announced a special Final Fantasy 14 Stratocaster electric guitar is being developed in collaboration with Fender. While pre-orders are not yet available for the $3,499 Stratocaster, it was announced that they will begin in the Americas, EMEA, and Australia in late 2021 and the guitar will ship in early 2022.

For those who may not be able to get their hands on one of these in real life, it was also revealed that Patch 5.5 will introduce an electric guitar to the Bard’s Performance mode and the Aetherolectric Guitar will be available for purchase in the Manderville Gold Saucer.

Final Fantasy 14: Endwalker will feature two new classes – the healer Sage and the DPS Reaper – and it will conclude the tale of Hydaelyn and Zodiark and will bring to a close the story that began in A Realm Reborn.

Furthermore, FF14 director Naoki Yoshida shared that a new playable character, the male Viera, is in the works alongside a female Hrothgar.
