Square Enix has released a new patch for the popular Final Fantasy XIV MMORPG. The new 5.2 update, which is known formally as Echoes of a Fallen Star, comes with a wealth of fresh content for players. The new patch comes in the aftermath of a successful release of the third expansion published for the game.
Shadowbringers was released earlier in 2019 and was praised by a large number of critics and fans as it managed to refresh the game with the introduction of fresh jobs (classes) locations, quests, and much more. Released in October 2019, the 5.1 patch brought an overhauled crafting mechanic, with many players loving the fact that it is now easier to collect materials and craft useful items during the endgame.
Within the same patch, players also gained the chance to explore the first raid connected to the Nier: Automata universe, which offered a worthy challenge for 24 brave players. According to some sources, the latest patch is quite large, and a significant amount of time will be needed to download the new files. Below you can find a list of curated highlights.
