FFXIV Shadowbringers Pre-Launch Livestream, New Dungeons And Jobs In Action

FFXIV's third expansion is here and we bring on the shadows by clearing Holminster Switch and playing the new Dancer and Gunbreaker Jobs.

Shadowbringers is the third expansion for Square Enix's MMORPG Final Fantasy XIV and delivers even more content alongside a number of core tweaks to the gameplay. In the video above, Michael and Erick run through the first Duty required in the main story questline; the dungeon is called Holminster Switch and sets the tone for narrative with the realm under "The First" under attack from monster corrupted by Light.

They test out the new Trust system, which allows you to run dungeons with AI teammates instead of matchmaking with other players. While it's not as efficient and causes a party wipe upon your death, it's a way to jump into dungeons quickly and have the game's characters fight alongside you. As for the new Jobs, you get a first-hand look at Dancer in action; it's the latest in the DPS role and can lay down damage from a distance and provide buffs for fellow party members.

For more on the Shadowbringers expansion, be sure to check out our breakdown of the biggest changes made for Final Fantasy XIV, our starter's guide to Dancer and Gunbreaker, or what director Naoki Yoshida said about what's in store for the Nier Automata crossover raid coming soon.
