As per Square Enix:

“Chronicles of a New Era – The Sorrow of Werlyt Updates – Players can continue their attempt to thwart the Empire’s warmachina development project alongside Gaius after vanquishing the Sapphire Weapon. However, newly unearthed information alludes to another foe lurking in the shadows: The Emerald Weapon.

“New Trial: Castrum Marinum – With the existence of a warmachina code-named ‘Emerald’ confirmed, it falls to Warriors of Light to spearhead a pre-emptive strike before this menace can be unleashed upon the world. Players can challenge Emerald Weapon in both normal and extreme difficulties.”

As for the aforementioned Eden's Promise Raid: 

"Ryne and her mysterious counterpart Gaia have succeeded in restoring balance to the elements of the Empty. Much of the credit goes to the Warrior of Light, whom they invite to observe whether life continues to flourish in the once-barren desert. While the flame of hope burns brighter than ever, this tale is far from over..."

There's also a new Dungeon (The Sorrow of Werlyt), too.

Aside from new additions, the Blue Mage is being updated to level 70, Explorer Mode is being added for Shadowbringer Dungeons, and the game's director Naoki Yoshida has promised a new live stream on February 6, 2021.
