New Final Fantasy 14 Stormblood Details Revealed: Samurai Class, New Housing Zone, Primal, & More

Fasten your seat belts boys and girls - Fan Fest EU has officially begun in Frankfurt, Germany today and that means we got some fresh Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood announcements to cover. Some of the major announcements that came out of Fan Fest EU so far are:

  • The Samurai, a melee DPS class, has officially been announced as the the second new job being introduced in Stormblood alongside the Red Mage.
  • The city of Kugane has officially been revealed and will serve as the main story hub of the expansion.
  • A brand new eastern-style residential area is being introduced called Shirugane. Furnishing capacity is also set to DOUBLE with the launch of Stormblood. 
  • New beast tribe 'The Kojin' and Primal 'Susano' announced.

I'm personally excited about the additional furnishing capacity for houses, as I'd love to fit more stuff into my Mansion on Gilgamesh. The additional housing zone should also make housing more accessible for people on busier servers, something players have been clamoring about for ages. Stormblood, the latest expansion for Final Fantasy XIV, is still slated to launch on June 20th, 2017. Expect additional announcements in the coming days.
