Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood’s Cinematic Trailer Reveals Samurai Class
Square Enix has announced that Final Fantasy XIV’s upcoming Stormblood expansion will receive a brand new Samurai class.
The news was disclosed as part of FFXIV’s Fan Fest event by director Naoki Yoshida. The Samurai is a melee DPS which uses katanas and is not connected with any other group. Players who create a Samurai will begin at level 50 (the level cap in Stormblood is increased to 70), though that particular amount may still change.
The samurai class has the ability to store energy in his katana, then unleash it in special attacks, dealing massive damage in short bursts.
Yoshida shared this news while dressed up as Final Fantasy X’s Auron at the event. Square Enix also shared the complete opening cinematic that provides a look in the new Asian-style city from the expansion with samurai action.
Stormblood starts on June 20th for PC and PlayStation 4. In addition to the Samurais and new areas to explore, the expansion also include the new Red Mage class, Yanaxia and The Azim Steppe dungeons, raids, new residential area called Shirogane, and more.
