Perhaps the biggest addition being made in the 6.25 update of FFXIV is the brand new Variant and Criterion dungeons, both of which are set to shake up the endgame gameplay available for a long time.

The first type of dungeon, known as Variant Dungeons will be level 90 dungeons intended for 1-4 players meaning that they are playable alone. The difficulty of the dungeon will alter depending on how many players are involved and roles can be switched while the dungeon is ongoing.

The first of these Variant Dungeons known as "The Sil'dihn Subterrane", will also have branching paths, with progression routes changing depending on player decisions. an NPC will also accompany players.

The second set of Dungeons, known as Criterion Dungeons, will be harder than Variant Dungeons, requiring a 4-player party composed of a tank, healer and 2 DPS. The enemy structure will be different and there will be no NPC to accompany them.

There will be limited revives and resurrection abilities are also disabled.

These Dungeons also have "Savage" variants which make them harder including no revives, respawning enemies and more powerful enemies.

One of the more amusing parts of the 6.25 content shown was its brand-new glamour, with some new cosmetic outfits for your characters to wear on their adventures across the game.

The new glamour is spy-themed with Yoshida even joking about the popular Spy X Family series that is currently ongoing and how the outfits were seemingly inspired by it.
