Square Enix today released a huge new update for Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, introducing an impressive amount of new content alongside new incentives and mechanics to make the new player experience more accessible and rewarding. Patch 3.2, titled The Gears of Change, introduces brand new story quests, additional dungeons, thrilling primal battles and much, much more.

New players have options to quickly familiarize themselves with online game mechanics as the Hall of the Novice opens its doors to new players.
