New Lands and Samurai Await in Final Fantasy XIV Stormblood

Final Fantasy XIV Fan Fest Europe is now in full swing in Frankfort, Germany, and Square Enix has used the event to announce new information about the upcoming Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood expansion.

"Rather than using the PS4 Pro's power to adapt to say 4k display, we're thinking of using it for game performance", he explained.

"We've already now begun work on a PS4 [Pro] patch, and we hope to have more details to reveal about it very soon", he added. At the opening event today, a new trailer for the game's upcoming expansion - Stormblood - has dropped, and you can see it at the end of this piece. Like the other new job announced for Stormblood, Red Mage, Samurai will begin at level 50 and is not attached to a base class.

But it was perhaps the announcement of the Samurai character class that caused the biggest stir, as Square Enix revealed more about the second new Stormblood job.

Although its style of play will be very different in Final Fantasy XIV, there will be some minor similarities including its skill names, ability to store energy before performing high burst attacks, and emphasis of weapon skills.

It's the moment we've all been waiting for - to see if Westbrook and the Warriors can get along at all. Asked how he thinks Westbrook will play in this one, Durant said he doesn't care.

The Katana-wielding samurai will use STR gear.

Not only that but the Samurai will set it's job quests in the original areas of Eorzea before going to the new continent in the far east.

Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood is releasing for PlayStation 4 and PC on June 30.

If more on Final Fantasy 14: Stormblood comes out of Fab Fest this weekend, we'll be sure to let you know.
