Today Square Enix announced the release date of the upcoming update 6.4 for its popular MMORPG Final Fantasy XIV

The new update, titled "The Dark Throne" will release on Tuesday, May 23, 2023. 


The announcement was accompanied by a trailer. We get to see glimpses of the continuation of the story on top of plenty of features that were showcased a few weeks ago including more sidequests, the new dungeon titled The Aetherfront, the trial named The Voidcast Dais featuring Golbez, the Pandaemonium: Anabaseios raid, and much more.

The game recently received update 6.38, which should be the last of the 6.3 cycle, while the Moogle Treasure Trove event is in full swing until the launch of 6.4.
