New Features Coming in FINAL FANTASY XIV 3.0, HEAVENSWARD!

With players still waiting for the release of Final Fantasy XIV’s 2.4 patch entitled Dreams of Ice, Square Enix announced the release of a brand new expansion for the said ongoing MMO – Heavensward.


Producer Naoki Yoshida took it to the game’s Fan Festival in Las Vegas to introduce FFXIV’s first big expansion. With a fresh logo from legendary artist Yoshitaka Amano and a name that evokes reaching towards the heavens, the spring 2015 expansion pack for the award-winning MMORPG finally sees players heading towards the Northern city of Ishgard. The focus of the story will be the 1,000 year-old Dragonsong War between Ishgard and Dravania and the players’ role in the conflict and its potential end.

Along with a massive adventure in the north, Heavensward will be adding a ton of fresh features to the game, including:

  • Level cap raise from 50 to 60 across all jobs and professions.
  • Massive new areas.
  • A new player race with both male and female characters.
  • Multiple new jobs.
  • New Primals, one of which will be completely unique to FFXIV.
  • Many new dungeons — more than 3 or 4.
  • High-end raids
  • Airships, Airship, Airships — Free Companies can band together and build their own airships.
  • New gear and recipes.

No release date has been given yet for Heavensward. Check out the teaser trailer above.
