Final Fantasy XIV players are enjoying.
Upcoming expansion Endwalker Just around the corner. Originally set to release last summer before delayed twice, it will finally go live on December 7 and December 3 for players who have pre-ordered the game.
But first, players won’t be able to log in for a long time before the expansion releases. The servers will be under maintenance for a longer time than usual, which makes sense considering the large amount of new content is expected to be introduced at once.
Endwalker until two and a half years later Shadowbringers, the latest expansion. It will be particularly content-heavy due to the ending of the story starting with A realm of rebirth, a reincarnation of the game released in 2013.
On top of the new regions including Sharlayan, Moon, Garlemald and Thavnair, two new jobs Sage and Reaper will release, as well as a multitude of other new features and changes with the expansion.
The whole game will feel different, though the UI will stay the same for the most part. For this reason, new files to download can be huge, and players will want to be prepared to launch the game as soon as it launches.
When Final Fantasy XIV‘NS Endwalker Patch 6.0?
Endwalker will release on December 3 for players who have pre-ordered the game and earned early access, and others will be able to test it starting December.
Follow official patch schedule, all servers will begin maintenance on December 2 at 3 a.m. CT and end the next day, on December 3 at 3 a.m. CT. As soon as the maintenance is over, players will be able to download patch 6.0 with Endwalker and launch the game afterwards.
However, there’s no way to be sure that players will actually be able to enjoy the new content at that point. In addition, problems may arise during maintenance and prolong server downtime, most likely the server will be overloaded with players.
The game reaches a unprecedented popularity this year, this can lead to many people wanting to participate on December 3 and cause problems, preventing players from logging in or playing.
However, Square Enix is aware of the risks and speak it is “optimized” [its] server before the launch of the expansion to increase the login limit”. On the other hand, the developer hasn’t been able to add more servers before launch because of ongoing semiconductor shortages, so it’s likely that the queue to get into the game will be long in the first weeks.
Sorry, free trial users will not get priority access to the following game Endwalker’s launch, so it can be a challenge for them to continue playing normally even without enjoying the new content.
