The long awaited patch coming to Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers, Patch 5.1, finally has a release date. Coming October 29, the new patch brings a wealth of new content and updates to the popular MMO.

In a trailer released today, Square Enix showed off a glimpse into the upcoming Patch 5.1, also called "Vows of Virtue, Deeds of Cruelty."  The trailer shows off a bit of the new NieR inspired raid, YoRHa: Dark Apocalypse.

Additionally, earlier this morning in the latest Letter from the Producer LIVE, Producer and Director Naoki Yoshida detailed the content coming with Patch 5.1. From the press release:

  • New Main Scenario Quests – The next chapter in the acclaimed Shadowbringers main storyline.
  • New 24-Player Alliance Raid: “The Copied Factory” – Featuring Yosuke Saito and YOKO TARO as guest creators, players will battle against machine lifeforms as they explore this new raid dungeon inspired by the world of NieR.
  • New Game+ – Revisit previously completed quests, cutscenes, dialog, and battles while keeping your current character and level. Patch 5.1 includes the main scenario quests for Heavensward, Stormblood, and Shadowbringers.
  • New Trial: Hades (Extreme) – Players can relive the battle against this fearsome foe in a high-difficulty battle challenge.
  • New Dungeon: “The Grand Cosmos” – Players can explore this great palace built by the Elves alongside fellow adventurers, or a party of non-player characters using the Trust system.
  • New Beast Tribe Quests – Enter the fantastical Garden of Dreams, Lyhe Mheg—a new area featuring a new questline with more of the mischief-loving pixies.
  • New PvP Frontline Map: “Onsal Hakair” (Patch 5.15) – Grand Companies will join forces with the tribes of the Azim Steppe to demonstrate their battle prowess in this competition of territory control.
  • Job Adjustments – The ninja, samurai, and summoner jobs will receive comprehensive adjustments to their current playstyles, while other jobs will receive various changes and tweaks.
  • Crafting and Gathering Overhaul – Various adjustments to actions, the removal of additional actions, UI improvements, and more will enhance the gathering and crafting experience for beginners and veterans alike.
  • New Gold Saucer GATE “The Slice is Right” – Yojimbo makes his debut at the Gold Saucer in this new mini game that will test players’ reflexes…and sheer luck.
  • Patch 5.1 will also feature the introduction of the ‘Fellowship’ community system, updates to Performance Actions, system updates, and more.
