Rise of a New Sun, the title of Final Fantasy XIV Stormblood‘s second major post-release patch, will continue the game’s main scenario with a return trip to the lands of Othard. Other content includes the return of Hildibrand, a trial against Byakko, the new raid tier in Omega, and more — but this week Square Enix shared images of two new dungeons in the patch: Hells’ Lid and The Fractal Continuum (Hard).
“Having found themselves in somewhat dire financial straits, the Scions of the Seventh Dawn are on the lookout for profitable ventures. Fortuitously, one appears to have presented itself: an anonymous missive from an individual seeking the aid of the warrior who laid low the Lord of the Revel. But before they will divulge the details, they would put your abilities to the proof. To wit, you are to venture into the hidden depths of Hells’ Lid, a volcanic island once home to a host of oni─at least, according to ancient legend…”
The Fractal Continuum (Hard)
“The Fractal Continuum plays host to both technological marvels and chimerical horrors conceived through the unparalleled ingenuity of the Allagans. And while its facilities have remained dormant since a recent endeavor to salvage materials, Garland Ironworks has detected a peculiar energy signature emanating from within. Few would dare even ponder what monstrosities yet stir within, but the Warrior of Light need not wonder. The Ironworks has beseeched their aid to investigate the resurgence of activity within the ancient Allagan museum.”
New gear can be obtained from these dungeons, featured below:

Final Fantasy XIV Patch 4.2 is currently scheduled to release by the end of January.
