Square Enix has announced that Final Fantasy XIV will be getting a major update later this May - Patch 4.3, or "Under the Moonlight" if you so prefer. While all of the details have not been revealed just yet, you might be interested to hear that Square Enix has now released a brief list highlighting some of the biggest features.

As such, you can expect to see a brand new Main Scenario Quest that continues onward from the Stormblood storyline, a new Alliance Raid set in the Ridorana Lighthouse, as well as a new Dungeon called the Swallow's Compass. You can find the full list right below, but again, don't expect much in terms of details:

New Main Scenario Quests – The story of Stormblood continues.

New Alliance Raid – The Ridorana Lighthouse.

New Trial

New Dungeon – The Swallow’s Compass.

New Beast Tribe Quests – The Namazu.

New Sidequests – The Four Lords, Doman Reconstruction and Further Hildibrand Adventures.

New Deep Dungeon – 100-Floor Heaven-on-High.

The Forbidden Land, Eureka Expansion – Pagos Expedition.

New Ultimate Difficulty Raid – Ultima Weapon.

Updates to jobs, PvP, glamour system, housing, performance actions, new more powerful gear and more.

I would love to offer you more information, but I'm afraid that's pretty much everything Square Enix has shared so far. What I can tell you, however, is that you should keep a close eye on the Patch 4.3 minisite as the developers seem to be updating it every couple of days. It's not much, but it's at least something to tide you over until the official trailer arrives at some point "soon."
