Update: the patch 5.5 website is back up and you can view it here

A website for the next Final Fantasy XIV patch, 5.5 went live briefly before being taken down after a few minutes. I guess it wasn’t supposed to be announced yet.

What we know is the patch is called Death unto Dawn and the release date shows as April 13, 2021.

Judging by the artwork:

Death Unto Dawn Artwork

It looks like this is going to involve some more Eorzean politics.

Plus based on the title people are already theorizing that another major character, probably one of them from the artwork will die.

What else we know is there will apparently be:

  • New main scenario quests
  • New Alliance Raid called -YoRHa: Dark Apocalypse
  • A new dungeon called Paglth’an
  • A new trial called the Cloud Deck
  • New Save the Queen Battlefield called Zadnore
  • The Playstation 5 open beta will begin
  • New mounts, minions and emotes
  • And a handful of other updates

I guess we’ll have to wait until April 13, 2021 for more details and to check everything out.
