Final Fantasy XIV’s final update of 2020, Futures Rewritten patch 5.4, launches on December 8. Along with new dungeons, main story quests, and trials, the patch adds Explorer Mode, which lets players explore dungeons and take screenshots without worrying about getting murdered by enemies. I’m down for some of that.

I started the game about a month ago with the free trial and am still in the early stages of Heavensward (though I have 3 (or 4 if you separate summoner and scholar) classes in the 50s to take as much advantage of the free trial before finally getting past the free trial). It will be a while before I get to see this new content lol.
