Spider-Man actor Tom Holland is hyped about the "Shadowbringers" expansion for Final Fantasy XIV. In an ad posted on the Final Fantasy XIV YouTube channel on Monday, Holland is shown training his body to become a Warrior of Darkness. Comedian and fellow Spider-Man: Homecoming actor Hannibal Buress is there to reveal the shocking truth: you don't need to swing a giant sword to play the game.
The expansion will launch on July 2. The expansion will feature the new "Gunbreaker" and "Dancer" jobs; the new "Viera" and "Hrothgar" races; the new areas "Il Mheg," "The Rak'tika Greatwood," and "Lakeland;" and the new towns "The Crystarium" and "Eulmore," among other updates.
A collector's edition of the expansion will include an art box, a figure, an art book, a logo sticker, playing cards, and three in-game items. Those who pre-order the expansion will receive two in-game items and early access to play the expansion starting on June 28.
