There’s no doubt that the trailers for Final Fantasy XIV are very stylized with awe inducing environments, couple with unique looking characters. And with the latest trailer, or extended opening movie, reflecting the upcoming Samurai Job, there’s no exception to the above.
For those who are not in the know, during the Final Fantasy XIV Fan Fest 2017 in Frankfurt, Germany, Square Enix released the new extended trailer for fans to drool over. Tagging along with said video comes four more videos revealing in-game footage of the Samurai job and new locations in action.
The job has been confirmed by Square Enix to join the Red Mage in the field of DPS, meaning that the Katana-wielding class will use STR gear.
The update will also bring a new player hub, residential area, and dungeons for players to explore. The first of the three comes a port town of Kugane, where players can use it as a hub in Stormblood. The second feature will stand as a new residential area that sports eastern-style housing and neighborhoods.
