Square Enix has outlined all the changes coming in Final Fantasy XIV Patch 6.58 ahead of the game’s cross-data center travel experiment. This will hopefully prevent issues with the launch of the next expansion.

Final Fantasy XIV is gearing up for the launch of the Dawntrail expansion, which is set to arrive in the summer of 2024.

While there are unlikely to be any major content updates before Dawntrail, big things are still happening with Final Fantasy XIV. The Xbox Series X/S version is finally here, though its new microtransactions have already caused a stir with players.

Square Enix has released the Final Fantasy XIV Patch 6.58 notes, which have outlined the changes made to the gameplay and quests and the test for a new mechanic that might ease congestion when Dawntrail launches.
