The patch will also introduce players to new items and material that can be found in the official patch notes.

More interestingly, the upcoming 4.57 patch will introduce the world visit system, which will allow players to travel to any World within their own data center to meet and play with friends. This is hopes that the community will grow and be more connected as it extends to both the North American and European data centers.

From then until May 6, players on the NA data center will be able to transfer their character to another World on any data center for free to ensure they are able to continue their journey in Shadowbringers with their friends.
