Final Fantasy XIV is receiving a slew of new content later this month thanks to the upcoming 4.2 update, Rise of a New Sun. Square Enix recently gave more details on what we can expect from the update, and released a new trailer.

The teaser, which you can watch below, showcases the forthcoming update and has several callbacks to the SNES classic, Final Fantasy VI. For example, the Phantom Train makes on appearance at the beginning of the video and antagonist Kefka appears briefly at the end.

Rise of a New Sun features the next arc in the Omega raid series, a new trial featuring one of the Four Lords, two new dungeons (Hell's Lid and The Fractal Continuum in hard mode), and several new mounts. You can check out Square Enix's dedicated site to the update for a more detailed breakdown, by heading here.

Rise of a New Sun releases for Final Fantasy XIV on PlayStation 4 and PC as of January 30. Last year, Netflix released a Japanese drama called Final Fantasy XIV: Dad of Light which follows a father and son who bond over the MMO. You can read our impressions of the show here.
