Final Fantasy 14 Stormblood Finale
Square Enix has additional updates planned for Final Fantasy 14 ahead of the release of Shadowbringers which includes the addition of Noctis and the Regalia from Final Fantasy XV. The next update, 4.57, will allow players to travel to any of the worlds within their data centre.
This world visit system will be introduced alongside an expansion of the North American and European data centres. These data centres need to be increased and improved due to the ever expanding player base of Final Fantasy 14.
Patch 4.57 is scheduled to be released on April 23. The European data centre expansion will commence on April 2. Between April 2 and 16, players on European servers will be able to transfer their character to any world on any data centre for free. More information can be found here.
Shadowbringers launches on July 2, 2019.
