Final Fantasy XIV: Endwalker is the fourth expansion for the very successful multi-platform MMORPG from Square Enix, released simultaneously in Japan, North America, and Europe/Australia on December 7, 2021 for PS4, PS5, Mac and Windows.
The End of the Zodiark/Hydaelyn Story Arc
Endwalker's story is the culmination of the overarching story of Final Fantasy XIV since the original version 1.0 in 2010, focusing on the Warrior of Light (the player) and their part in the struggle between Hydaelyn (Light) and Zodiark (Darkness).
Unlike previous expansions, where the main story of the expansion plays out through to the x.3 patch, the entirety of the story of Endwalker is in the initial 6.0 release. Beginning in patch 6.1, Newfound Adventure, an entirely new main storyline will begin.
Two New Jobs
With the release of Endwalker, two new jobs were introduced

The Reaper job is a melee DPS class who wield a large scythe and call upon the power of the void to unleash damage upon their foes.
Throughout the main scenario, you will find yourself travelling to many new locations, including Old Sharlayan, Radz-at-Han, the Imperial Capital of Garlemald, the Moon and more.
