Naoki ‘Yoshi-P’ Yoshida, the director and producer of Final Fantasy 14, has unveiled the release date for the highly anticipated expansion “Dawntrail.” In a lighthearted manner, he also jokingly extended a one-week window for Elden Ring fans to indulge in the Shadow of the Erdtree DLC before immersing themselves back into the fantasy world of the MMO.

Scheduled for launch on July 2, with early access commencing on June 28 for pre-order customers, Dawntrail promises an exciting new chapter for players. Meanwhile, Shadow of the Erdtree, the precursor DLC, is slated for release on June 21, providing a tantalizing glimpse into what lies ahead.

During a panel at PAX East, Final Fantasy 14 Yoshi-P shared Square Enix’s original plan to commence early access a week earlier, but humorously attributed the delay to the imminent release of Elden Ring DLC. Amidst laughter from the audience, he quipped, “We figured everybody would be interested in playing the Elden Ring DLC,” before playfully raising a finger and declaring, “I’ll give you one week!”

Clarifying his stance, Yoshi-P emphasized, “So, I’ll give you one week to enjoy Elden Ring DLC and then just go into your summer vacation into Dawntrail. Just want to make it clear: it’s not because I want to play Elden Ring DLC and then play Dawntrail, although I am looking forward to it!”

While Dawntrail tactfully navigates around Elden Ring’s DLC release, it sets its sights on paying homage to Final Fantasy 9, evident through various digital bonuses featuring references to the beloved 2000 PSone RPG. During the PAX East panel, Yoshi-P teasingly hinted at the reason behind these Final Fantasy 9 nods, intriguing fans with the promise of a hidden secret.

The revelation of Dawntrail’s release date amidst playful banter and nods to iconic RPGs demonstrates Yoshi-P’s adeptness at engaging with the gaming community while keeping anticipation high. With Final Fantasy 14’s continued evolution and the promise of exciting new adventures on the horizon, fans eagerly await the arrival of Dawntrail and the mysteries it holds.
