As of July 19th, Square has announced that their most recent RPG, Final Fantasy XIV, has exceeded over six million players. This number does not include those who have only utilized the free trial. This milestone also coincides with the release of Patch 3.35.
Patch 3.35 introduces Deep Dungeon: Palace of the Dead, a dungeon in which newcomers and veterans can work together through floors starting from level one.
Patch 3.35 introduces the Deep Dungeon: The Palace of the Dead, where newcomers and veterans can band together for an unprecedented adventure in FINAL FANTASY® XIV. With parties of up to four, the Palace of the Dead is the first of many planned content updates where players can battle through an array of enemies, avoid traps and tackle bosses to gain valuable experience. The dungeon features randomly generated maps, several dozen floors, and starts every participant at Level 1 with a unique new progression system. Diving deep into the dungeon will see players focusing on strengthening their gear throughout their journey, as they work to unravel the mystery of the Palace of the Dead.
