FFXIV Patch 6.2 Buried Memory Release Date and Live Letter 72 Details

Final Fantasty XIV (FFXIV) Patch 6.2 finally has a release date, as revealed during the FFXIV Live Letter 72. In addition to a grandiose trailer that showcases what to expect from the patch, named Buried Memory, players got a sneak peek at what's to come even further down the line with Patch 6.25.

In the trailer, which picks up from the end of the content released through FFXIV Patch 6.1, the Warrior of Light (your character) is heading to the Void. We meet a Reaper who lives in the Void, likely an important character as we'll soon find out in the new content. There's also a villain from FFIV who shows up: Scarmiglione, previously known as the Elemental Archfiend during his last Final Fantasy appearance.

But the new content doesn't stop there. The trailer also showcased Island Sanctuary, a life sim-styled area of FFXIV meant for solo content. Similar to games like Harvest Moon or Stardew Valley, players can build up their land and their own personal farm across a deserted island: their own Island Sanctuary getaway. It looks like a massive area, where the duty roulette queue will still function, so you can head off to the Sanctuary to gather materials, build facilities, care for creatures, and do much more without any experience necessary.

There's a whole wealth of content waiting with FFXIV Patch 6.2, including new main scenario quests, side story quests, a new dungeon, trial, 8-player raid, and much more. Here are all the details you need to know about what's next in Final Fantasy XIV Patch 6.2: Buried Memory.
