New trials will also be included. The enemy to appear in the new trials are yet to be revealed but, there has been speculations that it could be a battle against Nidhogg, or maybe one of the other two of the Warring Triads since Sephirot, the fiend of the Warring Triad has made his appearance in the previous patch.

New 24-man Raid Dungeon

The Weeping City of Mhach
A new kind of dungeon will debut in the this patch. This treasure hunt dungeon will be introduced as the Aquapolis, which will randomly appear when uncovering the dragonskin maps. Up to 8 players are able to enter Aquapolis together as players will be fighting against enemies. Though it may be hard, decent reward awaits in the final room.
The Deep Dungeon – The Palace of the Dead
Another new type of content to be made available in patch 3.3 is The Deep Dungeon – The Palace of the Dead. This content, which was mentioned at PAX East earlier, can be entered up to 4 players, which means that it can also be done solo. However, keep in mind that this dungeon is designed for 4 players so, it would be more of a challenge if challenged solo.
The progression in this dungeon is independent, which means that player will start at level 1 when first entering the dungeon and will progress as the players explore the dungeon deeper. Remember that players will return to the last checkpoint if being defeated. The special glowing weapon used in the content can be taken out and used in other contents in the game.
This content will not be made available in patch 3.3, but 3.35. There will be a lot of bosses that awaits in multiple floors. Along with future updates, new floors and score ranking system will be added.

Field of Glory (shatter) will be introduced in the upcoming patch as a new map for Frontlines. The applied rules will be similar to those of Seal Rock.

New housing additions and features will be added. As has been requested by the players since they are unable to get any more plots, a lot of additional plots will be added, and the prices of the land is yet to be released on the Lodestone.
Flower pots will also be made available for players to grow flowers, and new flowers, which can only be grown this way, will be added. The color of the flowers can be changed.
Housing update in patch 3.3
Raid Finder will be added. It is designed for player who are interested in raiding and looking for members to join, whether it is practice or clear or farm, or even more specific details such as practicing certain phases. Various requirements will be made available to set in order to join.
New crafters and gatherers gears will be added. According to the recent announcement at PAX East, it is confirmed that the new gears for crafters and gatherers are Ironworks gears.
Recommended Gear feature will also be added. It allows players to automatically equip suitable equipments in all slots with the highest item level. Note that the recommended gears will not be the ones with the best attributes, but with the highest item level. In some ways, this feature is similar to the Optimize feature that appeared in previous Final Fantasy titles.
More features to be added in patch 3.3
