Final Fantasy XIV is about to turn 10 years old, and it’s still going just as strong as ever. In celebration of the game’s anniversary, Square Enix has collaborated with Puma for a clothing collection inspired by the critically acclaimed MMORPG. In addition to that, Patch 6.35 launches this week, bringing the next stage in the Mandeville weapon enhancement quest series and the latest Deep Dungeon: Eureka Orthos.
When it comes to the clothing collection, it’s designed to embody the game’s themed of the duality between light and dark. It consists of footwear, apparel, and accessories that combine Puma DNA, contrasting colour palettes, and iconic graphics and characters from FFXIV. The clothing collection will be available at Puma.com in “select markets” on March 15 and North America on March 25.
Now, let’s turn to FFXIV’s Patch 6.35. There’s a new Tribal Quest, involving finding new purpose by helping every Loporrit. There’s a new Deep Dungeon, Eureka Orthos. It’s an ever-changing dungeon whose architecture changes every time the player enters. All players will begin at level 81 and fight enemies to gain the strength and experience needed to explore the dungeon’s secrets.
The patch introduces further Hildibrand Adventures. Here’s the description: “After enduring a series of surreal misadventures on the moon, Inspector Hildibrand has made it back to the star’s surface. He and his eclectic crew launch themselves directly into the search for Master PuPu’s missing companion—an endeavor which attracts the attention of old acquaintances both affable and aggravating…”
Finally, there are new Weapon Enhancement quests and new Tool Enhancement quests. In Manderville Weapons, Lord Goldberg has been deciphering his ancestor’s manual trying to recreate the “magnificent” Manderville weaponry. In Splendorous Tools, a legendary craftsman emerges from a hermit-like existence at the bottom of the Tempest; The Crystalline Mean provides the stage for a new saga of splendid tools.
Final Fantasy XIV is available for PC/Mac, PlayStation 5, and PlayStation 4.
