Final Fantasy 14 Dawntrail adds two new DPS jobs, and Yoshi-P might be baiting us over what they are

Final Fantasy 14 is getting two new DPS-focused jobs in Dawntrail next summer.

That comes from director and producer Naoki Yoshida, who teases what’s to come at Final Fantasy 14 Fan Fest. He confirms that we’re getting two, and that one will be a melee DPS and the other will be a caster.

He then sent the crowd wild by revealing his t-shirt. Now, to explain that a tad. Yoshida is known to tease upcoming content with his choice of, yes, shirt. He wore a Batman T-shirt before revealing the Dark Knight job, a Bugs Bunny t-shirt before announcing the playable Viera race, and so on.

So, what’s he wearing this time? A Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles t-shirt. We already have the ninja class, so he could be teasing us this time around. Or! You could consider that each turtle is named after an artist, and we have seen classes based around the profession in the series and beyond in the likes of Lost Ark. Food for thought.

Unfortunately, that’s our lot until one of the next Fan Fest events, due to take place in London and then Tokyo. So we’ll have to wait and see if he’s teasing us.

Whatever the new classes end up being, you’ll be playing when patch 7.0, called Dawntrail, releases next summer. Details are thin on the ground at the time of writing, though we do know we’re off to a new land called Tural to aid a succession crisis that will divide the Scions through the next era of one of the best MMORPGs. It’s not all that serious though, as Yoshida wants the expansion to feel like the best summer vacation ever.

During the keynote, Yoshi-P has also revealed that Final Fantasy 14 is coming to Xbox Series X|S next year, and that the Free Trial is expanding to include the Stormblood expansion when patch 6.5 releases this year.

If Sakaguchi got his way, we’d be getting a Final Fantasy 14 Beastmaster.
