Final Fantasy 14: Dawntrail

Final Fantasy 14 Expansion ‘Dawntrail’ Launches This July

The upcoming expansion Dawntrail will arrive on July 2, 2024, as revealed during today’s Final Fantasy 14 panel at PAX East. Director Naoki Yoshida also revealed some exciting collaborations coming to the MMO.

Final Fantasy 14‘s upcoming expansion, Dawntrail, is available for pre-order. Those who pre-order will get early access a few days before the official release. The Version 7.0 Early Access period starts on June 28, 2024. A Collector’s Edition of Dawntrail will be released, including a digital-only or physical version of the game, Cruise Chaser’s big brother and a new Ark mount. Early purchasers will receive the Wind-up Zidane minion and Azeyma’s Earrings as bonuses.

“You may have noticed a lot of Final Fantasy 9 references here… but the reason is a secret,” said Yoshida during the panel. It is heavily rumoured that a Final Fantasy 9 remake will be in the works alongside an animated series.

During today’s presentation, Yoshi-P revealed that the development team could have released the game earlier. However, they decided to postpone the release to avoid conflicting with the Shadow of the Erdtree DLC for Elden Ring, which is set to come out on June 21, 2024. The team intends to give the DLC a week of breathing room before early access for Dawntrail begins. Yoshi-P also mentioned that he looks forward to playing Shadow of the Erdtree.
