As the world of "Final Fantasy XIV" continues to expand thanks to a new 2.5 update coming on Jan. 20, 2015, Square Enix released a new trailer that shows what players can expect when they return to the realm reborn. The new campaign titled "Before the Fall" is set to be so big that it will be split into three parts according to PC Gamer, who appreciated the scope and effort put to make the trailer seem epic.

The "Final Fantasy XIV" 2.5 update trailer looks like less like a regular update for an online game and more like an epic quest similar to past "Final Fantasy" games. From the thunderous voice of the narrator to the mysterious villains hatching schemes for whatever reason, it is quite clear that Square Enix has outdone themselves. The CGI is also rather lovely, with some great voice acting to compliment it, while also adding gravitas to the campaign revealed.

A report from Electronic Monthly details what else will be available in the upcoming "Before the Fall" patch. Aside from new story quests, the patch will introduce three new dungeons (Keeper of the Lake, Amdapor Keep Hard, and Wanderer's Palace Hard), a new difficulty mode against the Gilgamesh, a battle against the lord of Asgard Odin, and a new Raid called the "24 Man World of Darkness."

This update will be followed by patch 2.51 and will be released in late February. Aside from continuing the story presented in "Before the Fall" it will also introduce the Manderville Gold Saucer and Triple Triad along with the next step in the relic weapon questline. The final part of the update 2.52 will be released in March. Though no concrete details were given regarding new items, monsters or dungeons it will reportedly wrap up the main scenario before the game's first official expansion "Heavensward" comes out.

Square Enix's developer blog reveals that members of the development team who encountered the flu late in 2014 worked on the trailer. Though a bit late, the team managed to finish the rather lavish looking trailer. The blog also reveals some screen shots of the newer areas available.
