Square Enix announces that the release date for Patch 6.1 for Final Fantasy XIV: Endwalker will be out on April 12. New content, called "Newfound Adventure" will be added with this patch. We've got ourselves a new trailer, some general update notes, and more.

This new patch will also be the first implementation of a new Duty Support System for A Realm Reborn content. This new system will allow for all 4-player main scenario dungeons and trials to be played solo alongside NPC teammates. There will be some major revisions made to Cape Westwind and later duties made later on to further support a solo-play experience.

Here are the main features being implemented with Patch 6.1:

  • Adventurer Plates (Beta Version) – The new Adventurer Plates feature was showcased in detail. Player portraits can be customized to include lighting, animation, and camera angles using a character’s current appearance, and multiple portraits can be saved for future use. The character profiles can include information such as favorite job and title, playstyle preference, active play times, and more.
  • PvP Updates – Additional details on the new small scale PvP content known as Crystalline Conflict were revealed, including the new rewards system and PvP schedule.

This update also includes the launch of a new dungeon and Unreal trial, Ultima's Bane (Unreal), as wll as the new Unending Codex. This is an "assortment of information on characters and terms added to your Collection which will be updated as you progress through the 6.1 main scenario."
