With April right around the corner, Square Enix is revealing some more details and images from what we can expect from the next update for Final Fantasy XIV, patch 6.1.

 In the new updates on the Newfound Adventure minisite, the new main scenario quest will take place after the events of Endwalker:

“With despair silenced and hope restored, the Scions of the Seventh Dawn step back into the shadows, their star's hero to don the mantle of simple adventurer once more. Eager heart never idle, 'tis not long before the Warrior of Light hearkens unto journey's call…” 

The Trial coming, The Minstrel's Ballad: Endsinger's Aria is all about despair. Well, it’s about beating back despair (once again if you’re fresh off Endwalker), but there’s no rest here. You’ll have to face the challenge to “overcome the ultimate incarnation of despair” when the Minstrel removes all ideas and hope of friends’ help and inspires something much darker.

There will also be a new residential district: Empyreum. This means that there will once again be  residential plots for sale. So if you are looking to live in this very big city state and you've been itching to get your hands on some property in Final Fantasy XIV  for a while, you'll want to enter the lottery system to have a chance to buy your very own plot. 

Other things we can  expect in the update, which is set to release in mid-april, is a new Unreal trial called Ultima’s Bane, a new Alliance Raid, Myths of the Realm Part 1, new PVP content, Crystalline Conflict, New Game+ chapters, new side quests including Tataru’s Grand Adventure and more.

 You can see all of the newest details about the coming update over on the Newfound Adventure mini site for Final Fantasy XIV update 6.1.
