Square Enix’s E3 2019 press conference was full of Final Fantasy news. Final Fantasy VII remake, Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered, and of course, their popular MMORPG, Final Fantasy XIV. Director and producer Naoki Yoshida took the stage to talk about the game’s third expansion pack, Shadowbringers, which will release on July the 2nd.
Yoshida took his time in the spotlight to thank all the players who had helped the game reach its highest number of active subscribers in history. Speaking to the Shadowbringers expansion pack, he said that “we view (it) as more than a simple expansion pack”, citing the volume of gameplay experiences that could make up a standalone RPG in themselves.
He made a point to mention that there were a lot of new elements to come in the expansion, including two new classes–the Gunbreaker and Dancer–as well as two new races–the rabbit-like Viera and the beastly Hrothgard.
Yoshida made a point of asking players to be excited about Shadowbringers as the latest in the Final Fantasy series, at least until March 3rd, 2020, when Final Fantasy VII Remake is slated to release. A launch trailer for the game was then shown, which you can watch above.
