Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward Debuts This June, New Zones Revealed
After its major reboot in 2013, Final Fantasy XIV is getting its first big expansion, Heavensward, but it has been delayed a few weeks.
While A Realm Reborn's expansion did have to be pushed back a few weeks, we finally have a set release date for Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward. Although the original game has been out since 2010, this will be the first expansion that will be coming to Final Fantasy XIV since its reboot a year and a half ago. Kotaku reports that Square Enix has revealed more information at PAX East on the expansion other than just its release date. Now we know that Transgaming will be porting the game on to the MacOS and it seems the full MMORPG and its new expansion will be coming out for Mac on the same day that Heavensward will be coming out for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3 and PC.
You can watch the video above to check out the new zones coming to Eorzea in Final Fantasy XIV. The Heavensward expansion will add three more classes to the game, raise the level cap to 60 and open up Northern Eorzea. Northern Eorzea will allow players to make a final homage to Final Fantasy VI's flying continent, but you won't have to fly on those old boring mounts. Instead, there will be new mounts that will transport you to this sacred place. These flying mounts will include a super awesome sky whale, which may be the new Primal, Bismarck.
If you decide to pre-order the Heavensward expansion for Final Fantasy XIV (which opens on March 16) you will get to play the expansion four days earlier than everyone else who will have to wait for its June 23 release when it will launch for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, PC and Mac.
