AFKer Patches Update keeps track of new updates being made available, be they patches, DLC, or anything else. In today’s update, Final Fantasy XIV reaches 3.5, World of Tanks brings back the Sherman Fury, Dragon Nest adds a new character class, and NOW That’s What I Call Sing 2 adds a new DLC pack of chart hits.
Final Fantasy XIV
Entitled The Far Edge of Fate, Final Fantasy XIV Patch 3.5 brings substantial new content to the game, including a new Main Scenario quest, a new Alliance Raid, the addition of the last Warring Triad challenge, two new high-level dungeons, and various side quests.
In terms of features, PvP is the primary beneficiary, as players will now be able to duel opponents with synced item levels, as well as participate in Frontline battles without being restricted by guild allegiance. There’s also been the addition of new PvP gear and mounts, modeled after character designs from the Japanese TV series Garo.
The Party Finder feature has also received updates, allowing players to search for parties across all Worlds on the same server, as well as creating parties which their friends can join via special passwords.
Through completion of a new quest, summoners will now be able to change the appearance of their egi through a special text command. This initial update includes Emerald, Topaz, and Ruby Carbuncle models as glamour options, with more scheduled for future patches.
On top of all that, the updates include new housing exteriors, additions to the aquarium, and new paintings to decorate rooms. Finally, new hairstyles, minions, emotes, and mounts will be added.
In a statement, Square announced continued content updates following the release of Patch 3.5, which will include an entirely revamped version of The Diadem exploratory missions, a new map for the Feast PvP, and new Disciple of the Land/Hand content. The second half of Patch 3.5, tentatively scheduled for release in March, will include the conclusion of the Heavensward main scenario story.
