The latest patch update will introduce many new quests, dungeons, challenges, and trials coming soon to the popular MMORPG title. According to the patch's Special Site description, "Five millennia ago, the great wyrm Azdaja vanished into the void, and for long years Vrtra had despaired of being reunited with his dear sister."
"With the encouragement of his people, however, he has found the resolve to search for her and sets forth with the Warrior of Light for a world engulfed in Darkness…."
Patch 6.1 Newfound Adventure welcomed a new saga for Final Fantasy XIV after concluding the Endwalker chapter, and it appears that the Buried Memory update will continue from Patch 6.1. This will also see the continuation of a few side quests Tataru's Grand Endeavor and Further Hildabrand Adventures, which the latter will be arriving in Patch 6.25.

The activities available on the island are on the casual spectrum, and players can complete them alone. The challenge looks similar to Stardew Valley, where you can explore the location, meet its residents, and plant crops for a more relaxing gaming experience.
Square Enix will also introduce a new Dungeon, The Fell Court of Troia; however, little is known about this dungeon event. Based on the description from the Special Site, we know that players will party together to utilize a submerged rift to travel to a "shadowed castle."
