Final Fantasy 14's latest DLC, Rise of a New Sun, rolled out in patch 4.2 last month, and is the second major expansion following 2017's Stormblood. Matt "Bayohne" Hilton, from Square Enix's community team, has confirmed that The Forbidden Land - Eureka Anemos will follow in patch 4.25. The content will be similar to Diadem, which was not very well received at the time, but Final Fantasy 14's director and producer, Naoki Yoshida, has elaborated on what's in store, and the lessons they learned from Diadem's realease.

"We tried a few different things with the Diadem," he said in an interview with PSUback in November, via Silicon Era. "In the first iteration we focused on content where players farmed enemies without many clear objectives, and then toyed with the idea of having players complete objectives with a big surprise waiting for them (in the form of a monster). Eureka was developed based on our experiences from creating that content.

"The idea behind Eureka is to give players the opportunity to experience content that has a completely different set of battle rules from field or instanced content."

Director and producer, Naoki Yoshida, shared further details on Eureka in a recent live stream, with Siliconera posting a lengthy summary of the upcoming features.

Up to 144 players will be able to occupy a single instance with an emphasis on teamwork, and they can drop in and out of parties as they choose. If you are looking for a party to buddy up with, you can put up your "invite flag".
