Final Fantasy XIV Patch 6.1 “Newfound Adventure” Receives Release Date, Screenshots, New Trailer & Details Aplenty

Square Enix recently hosted a new Final Fantasy XIV Live Letter with the game’s producer and director, Naoki Yoshida, revealing a plethora of info regarding the highly anticipated Patch 6.1. For instance, the new patch was announced to launch on April 12, 2022. Titled “Newfound Adventure,” players can look forward to new Main Scenario quests, the ‘Tataru’s Grand Endeavor’ side quest, new story content for Role Quests, and more.

The MMORPG’s base game will also receive the Duty Support system, so those desiring solo play can experience trials and main dungeons with a party of NPCs instead of with other players. Further implementations to the Duty Support system are planned in later parts of the game down the road.
