Square Enix has announced a release date for the first full expansion for Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn.
The announcement came with the today's arrival of patch 2.55 dubbed Before The Fall which sets up the game's story for the events that will take place in Heavensward.
“FFXIV, which started as A Realm Reborn, has evolved and grown massively in the last year and a half. These dramatic changes to the game have also been a fun and exciting experience,” said the game's producer/director Naoki Yoshida. “Even if you are away from Final Fantasy XIV at the moment, please enjoy the last of A Realm Reborn and look forward to a new beginning in Heavensward - which will bring the start of a new scenario and a huge volume of new content including new jobs, maps and raids, an increase of level cap, the implementation of Free Company contents and much more. The volume will be more than a brand new RPG. Thank you for all your support so far and please look forward to the updates coming in the Heavensward 3.0 series.”
Heavensward will arrive for Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn on PC, PS4 and PS3 world wide on June the 23rd.
