As we march slowly on towards Final Fantasy XIV
's second expansion due in the early summer of 2017, let us not forget that there are loose ends that need to be tied up first before we wave off the Heavensward
and 3.X portions of the game with valedictions for good. The latest Live Letter (XXXII) has announced Patch 3.5, titled The Far Edge of Fate
. Like Patch 2.5 prior to Heavensward
, this patch will be staggered across two parts, with the first due to come live in mid-January. Part 2 will arrive two months later.
