During a recent live stream from the official Final Fantasy 14 Online twitch channel, game director and producer Naoki Yoshida announced ten years worth of support and content for the MMORPG.

The road map begins with patch 6.1, which expands the new Trust System into main scenario dungeons, allowing players to bring along NPC allies. To further help new players, several low-level main scenario missions will be changed to make them friendlier for solo players. Patch 6.1 arrives in April.
