Come inside to see Odin, new dungeons, some familiar FFIII faces, and much more.

If this morning's trailer wasn't enough to whet your appetite for next week's release of Final Fantasy XIV's Patch 2.5, then you'll be happy to see that we have 40 new images from said update tonight.

The final major update to A Realm Reborn before this spring's release of the Heavensward expansion, Patch 2.5: Before the Fall (Part One) contains a new battle with Odin, some kind of Gilgamesh battle, new main scenario quests, more Hildibrand, three new dungeons, and The World of Darkness, the finale of the Crystal Tower series of dungeons. As usual, this Final Fantasy III-themed dungeon has some familiar bosses from one of the most-ported Final Fantasy games ever.

Check out our newly-updated gallery for images of all of the above, including the incredibly-attractive gear from The World of Darkness. To say I need this on my Paladin right now is putting it lightly:

All dat WoD Tank Gear

Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn Patch 2.5 (Part One) releases on January 20th. The 2.51 update with the Manderville Gold Saucer hits in late February, and Patch 2.5 (Part Two) is set for late March.

(Oh, and don't worry, we didn't forget about reviewing Patch 2.4; that's coming very soon!)
