Along with the reveal of the second new job called Reaper, Final Fantasy XIV director, Naoki Yoshida, went on to provide footage of brand new locations, which are still in development, including Old Sharlayan which will act as the newest player hub city in Endwalker.

Labyrinthos and Thavnair are just a couple more examples of open areas players can explore that Square Enix teased.

In February, Square Enix revealed that in Endwalker, players will be able to travel to the Moon and during the Fan Festival, Yoshida provided a first look at the new area called Mare Lamentorum.

To end the keynote, Square Enix also announced that a Male Viera playable race will make its debut with Endwalker, something fans have frequently requested since the previous expansion, Shadowbringers, was released.

When released, Endwalker will mark the end of the decade-long XIV story with Yoshida previously stating that the game “may never end”.

During the showcase, which is running online for free from May 15 to May 16, Square Enix confirmed that Final Fantasy XIV Endwalker will launch on November 23, later this year. Pre-order’s for Collector’s and Digital Editions are currently available.
