Things get a little darker in the FFXIV world, but on the bright side this expansion comes with a raid guest written by Nier creator Yoko Taro and Dragon Quest 11’s Yosuke Saito, two new jobs (Gunbreaker and Dancer), and the Viera race. You know, the bunny-eared lady folk first popularized in Final Fantasy 12. People were a bit miffed Square wasn’t planning on having male bunnies, though, so the developer says they’re looking into it.

B.J. Blazkowicz, for all his Nazi-killing glory, is getting a bit gray, but that’s OK, because his twin daughters have taken over the fight to murder anything with a Swastika on it. This co-op shooter is set in an alternate history '80s Paris, meaning that maybe its narrative will come with tinges of the real-world French revolution. Judging from the title’s similarities to previous Wolfenstein DLC the Old Blood (plus the fact that Wolfenstein: The New Colossus just released in October 2017), it’s highly likely this is another sidestory meant to flesh out the world. Just promise us that we’ll still get some classic B.J. one-liners and we’re cool.
