Square Enix has dropped Patch 5.55 for Final Fantasy XIV Online, which also brings about the PS5 version of the game. The big focus on this patch is that it brings an end to the Shadowbringers storyline, adding in new content to the main scenario, as well as YoRHa: Dark Apocalypse and Save the Queen questlines. The patch also marks the launch of the game on the PS5 as they prepare for the Endwalker content coming in November.
Patch 5.55 includes the second half of the Patch 5.5 story, setting up the upcoming Endwalker expansion. However, it’s not just plot that’s coming with Patch 5.55: the Nier: Automata crossover questline is also set to end with the addition of new YoRHa: Dark Apocalypse content. This new content is likely to add to the highly sought-after Nier: Automata gear, bringing more wearable items from the hit Square Enix RPG into the world of Final Fantasy XIV. Outside of crosseovers, Patch 5.55 will introduce new content for the ‘Save The Queen’ questline, including the new field area Zadnor, an enhancement of resistance weapons, and a brand new 48-person battle experience in Dalriada.
