During the recent Live Letter from the Producer, we were treated to an early peak at what's to come in the next major content patch 5.4 "Futures Rewritten. With the Shadowbringers story brought to its conclusion in 5.3, we're all very intrigued to see where the story goes next, and this major patch is the start of that new chapter. The events that take place in patch 5.4, will be the beginning of the story arc that will lead up to the next major expansion - very exciting! Not only will 5.4 bring new story content, but we actually got a fairly chunky preview of some of the other content making its way to us. We won't have too long to wait either, as FF14 producer Yoshi-P also confirmed that we can expect to see 5.4 Futures Rewritten in "early December".
No doubt we'll get more details over upcoming weeks and we'll share them with you as soon as we hear them, but in the meantime, here's a summary of all the main features that were revealed, along with some very early screenshots & concept art for us to drool & speculate over!

The "Mogstation Store" has had a completely new make-over! Now simply called "Final Fantasy XIV Online Store", what do you all think of the new look & feel? Our personal experience is that the new store is much more user-friendly, easy to navigate, clearer, easier to find things and much more obvious to newcomers to the game. We particularly love the new categories & filters, as well as the fact you can browse the store without needing to log in anymore! It's also much more compatible with mobile phones, which Officer Syl is gonna love hehe! Head over to visit the new store by clicking this link, and why not share your thoughts & experiences with the new design & functionality in our Discord!
Here's a summary of the key changes to the store:
