Dawntrail marks a brand new starting for Last Fantasy 14, which has left producer Naoki Yoshida questioning if he ought to simply let everybody skip all the opposite expansions.
Last Fantasy 14 is clearly a large sport (its style tells us as a lot), and with the following enlargement within the collection, Dawntrail, being the primary that may begin a brand new story arc, it will make sense if new gamers simply needed to skip straight to it. In a brand new interview with Famitsu (translations by aitaikimochi), Yoshida, in any other case referred to as Yoshi-P, spoke on the potential of introducing programs that allow gamers extra simply skip expansions so as to catch as much as the most recent one.
In keeping with Yoshi-P, the Last Fantasy 14 crew has ready some new in-game options that may allow you to learn lore and background of the characters and world as much as the tip of Endwalker, or patch 6.0. For those who did resolve to skip all of that, you would need to play from patch 6.1, main you as much as Dawntrail, which can be patch 7.0.
Whereas the crew may be making ready these options, Yoshi-P recommends newcomers to really play by means of all of the expansions, evaluating it to a protracted operating TV present, and the way you do not simply begin at season six. Yoshi-P and the crew additionally aren't completely certain whether or not they wish to implement these options or not but, so that you might need to stay to lore compilations from YouTubers.
It's really already attainable to skip principal story quests by paying a small price (nothing's ever free on this world or in Hydaelyn), however there's nothing in place that catches you up on the primary story beats.
We'll have to attend and see if these options are added, however one factor is for certain: Last Fantasy 14 is lastly coming to Xbox Sequence X/S subsequent spring, after gamers have been ready for variety of years.
