Final Fantasy 14: A Realm Reborn is gearing up for this year'swith a big climax that will see the end of the core game's main plotline.
Patch 2.5, otherwise known as Before the Fall Part One, has now been released, offering “roughly two-thirds of the final main scenario quests”, three new dungeons, and the conclusion of the Crystal Tower questline and the World of Darkness.
That probably won't mean much if you're not a Final Fantasy 14 nut, but suffice to say it's going to be a pretty big few months for those following the overarching plot. Here's FF14'son the latest patch;
“The patch will also feature the adventures of Hildibrand─agent of enquiry, inspector extraordinaire─on his latest (and perhaps final?) investigation, a new battle against Odin, the Dark Divinity of legend, in Urth’s Fount, new gear for gatherers and crafters, numerous new recipes, and more. We have plenty planned to make this patch a befitting prelude to the end of the 2.X storyline.”
Part Two of Before the Fall is scheduled for the end of March, and will wrap things up in a neat bow beforewhisks players off to the Northern city of Ishgard.
