During the broadcast, Yoshida offered viewers a demonstration of Island Sanctuary, a new type of casual solo content that allows players to build and customize their own personal farm on a deserted island by gathering materials, building facilities, caring for creatures, and more, without the need for prior crafting or gathering experience

Dungeons will feature branching routes, which change depending on player action within the dungeon.
  • New “Another Path: Criterion Dungeons” Battle Content – High difficulty four-player content, which features a distinct structure and enemies of the Variant Dungeons, but will have a set route. Criterion dungeons will feature two options of difficulties, each with its own unique set of rules and characteristics.

In addition, a collaboration with Insert Coin clothing to create the FFXIV Endwalker Paladin Jacket was revealed. Inspired by the level 90 paladin job-specific gear featured in key art and the Endwalker trailer, the jacket features high-quality embroidery and is available to order now.
