Square Enix has announced new information on Final Fantasy XIV Patch 6.2 Buried Memory.

Final Fantasy XIV Patch 6.2 is Buried Memory

Details about the upcoming patch 6.2 Buried Memory were shared during the latest Letter from the Producer LIVE broadcast. It also included new information about the highly-anticipated Island Sanctuary content.

Patch 6.2 is planned to launch in late August 2022. It will include a lot of new content including the latest chapter in the main story, fresh battle challenges, system updates, and more.

Island Sanctuary Need-to-Knows

Producer and Director Naoki Yoshida explained how Island Sanctuary would work and what adventures lie in store. Players will be able to build their own personal island sanctuary where they can gather materials, build facilities, care for creatures, and more. The best part is they will not need any experience of crafting or gathering. Completing various content in the Island Sanctuary will yield island currency which can be exchanged for special items.

Dungeons will feature branching routes, which change depending on player action within the dungeon.
  • Another Path: Criterion Dungeons – High difficulty four-player content, which features a visually similar area to the Variant Dungeons, but will have a set route. The Criterion Dungeon content will feature two options of varying difficulties, each with their own unique set of rules and characteristics.

Patch 6.18 Data Center Travel Feature

Patch 6.18 will launch on Tuesday, July 5, 2022, which will introduce the Data Center Travel feature. Players will be able to visit Worlds on different data centers before forming parties and challenging duties once there. Players will only be able to travel between logical data centers within the same physical data center with this feature. This means travelling between different region data centers will not be available.
