Some of the newly-announced features players can look forward to include:

New Job – The “Viper,” a close-range fighter using two one-handed blades that can be combined into a single two-handed weapon.
New City – Tuliyollal, the seat of the federal nation-state governing Tural, located in the Northern Reaches of Yok Tural.
New Areas – The tropical region of Kozama’uka, replete with myriad rivers, streams and waterfalls, and the arid region of Shaaloani, spanning vast rain-starved plains across which a railroad is being constructed.
New Allied Tribe – The Moblins, a people residing in the jungles of Kozama’uka who bear a strong resemblance to the goblins with whom they share common ancestry.
New Threats – Eliminator
New Alliance Raid – Echoes of Vana’diel, a crossover series with Final Fantasy XI.
