FFXIV Patch 2.2 Story and Characters Introduced

Square Enix has released more information on the upcoming patch.

Square Enix shared more details yesterday on the story and characters that will be introduced in Patch 2.2.

Long dormant forces stir, their awakening a presage of night eternal.

Political unrest pervades the three city-states as the Scions of the Seventh Dawn leave behind their home in the Waking Sands. For the betterment of Eorzea, they have re-established themselves beyond the reach of those who would sway the Scions of personal gain.

Continue after the jump for more!

Yet despite the Scions' best efforts, balance will not be restored to the realm so easily. Ever do the mysteries of the Echo and the Ascians elude them, while the beast tribes rally with renewed ambition, threatening to unleash the wrath of another primal upon the land.

To stave off the encroaching darkness and pull the realm back from the brink of destruction, the Warriors of Light plunge headlong into the maelstrom...

Hailing from the nation of Doma on the shores of Othard, Yugiri and her countrymen have fled their war-torn home and the oppression of Garlean rule in search of refuge. With supplies and hopes for survival dwindling, Yugiri seeks council with Eorzea's leaders, that they too may call this land their home.

A new primal, Leviathan, will be introduced. The Sahagin, reviled beast tribe native to the Indigo Deep, have succeeded in summoning forth their voracious god, the primal Leviathan. How will the Warriors of Light stand against the might of the sea's most diabolical denizen?

A new side-story quest, the Case of the Thieving Duelist, has been revealed. When we last saw Hildibrand─agent of enquiry, inspector extraordinaire─he had received a letter of challenge from a mysterious marauder known to duel his victims and claim their weapons as his own. What will this battle hold for Eorzea's favorite detective? Who is this furtive fighter, and will he be brought to justice? The answers to all these questions and more can be found by joining Hildibrand and Nashu on their next case.

The new content will also include the Gilgamesh Battle. In his never-ending quest for power and glory, Gilgamesh─self-styled warrior of legend and collector of fine weaponry─now roams the lands of Eorzea. When a series of events leads to confrontation with this formidable foe, you must prove your mettle or see your blade lost to his ever-growing collection.

Square Enix has also announced the 13th installment of the Letter from the Producer LIVE with director/producer Naoki Yoshida. The livestream will kick off on March 21 at 2:30am Pacific Time and cover upcoming Patch 2.2 content, including a preview of the new beast tribe quests, new cases to come for Hildibrand, the introduction of the "Glamours" system, which allows for the altering of gear appearance and "ventures" that will allow players to expand on their retainer's role. Main scenario writer Kazutoyo Maehiro will also make a guest appearance to speak to Patch 2.2's story and quests. More information on the livestream can be found on the official website.
