It's coming next year.

Players are eager to discover what the expansion will entail. Since Endwalker brought to a close the story that began a decade ago with A Realm Reborn, we don’t know what’s coming for the game in the future.

Still, the developer dropped hints at the end of the expansion’s main story and in the post-expansion quests, and Dawntrail’s trailer revealed where the players will be headed next. The question that remains is when they’ll be able to explore those distant lands.

Dawntrail‘s exact release date in Final Fantasy XIV

Fans finally got a release date for Dawntrail on March 23 after the developer revealed the date in a new X post. Dawntrail is set to release on July 2, 2024, with early access beginning on June 28.

What will Dawntrail bring into the game?

Dawntrail will bring players to the lands of Tural, whose capital city is Tuliyollal, as well as the mountains of Urqopacha and the forest of Yak T’el. In addition, players will be able to reach level 100 and discover several new jobs.

The upcoming expansion will also bring a new tribe of creatures called Pelupelu, which is already known by Final Fantasy fans. They are short human beings wearing bird masks.

Those will be the main things brought by the expansion, but it’ll also feature adjustments and improvements on pretty much all existing aspects of the game, such as Duty Support, duties, PvP, Island Sanctuaries, and more.
