Final Fantasy XIV: Dawntrail Information Released

Set to release next summer, Square Enix has released new information at the Final Fantasy XIV Fan Festival about the MMO’s fifth expansion, Dawntrail.

New to this release is the “Viper” class. This class will let players take control of a close-range fighter that uses two one-handed blades. These can also be combined into a single two-handed weapon.

Also new to this release is the city of Tuliyollal. Located in the Northern Reaches of Yok Tural, this area serves as the seat of the federal nation-state governing Tural.
