Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward releases today, bringing a host of new content to Square's impressive MMORPG. We've got the new launch trailer and full details below, but first things first, you can currently grab a PC copy for an insanely cheap price.
You'll need to redeem the code on Square Enix Mog Station and remember that players will need to complete the Before the Dawn quest, introduced in patch 2.55, in order to gain immediate access to the new quest line. Check out the trailer and details after the break!
FINAL FANTASY XIV: HEAVENSWARD features a new story that drops adventurers into the heart of the Dragonsong War, the bloody, thousand-year conflict between the knights of Ishgard and the dragons of Dravania. Adventurers can also look forward to an increased level cap from 50 to 60 on all disciplines, a new playable race, new dungeons and raids, new primal battles, and the introduction of flying mounts that allow players to take to the skies on flying black chocobos, single-rider airships, dragons and more!
“Heavensward marks the beginning of the second season of our journey through the vast FINAL FANTASY XIV universe,” said Naoki Yoshida, producer and director. “Having laid a strong foundation in A Realm Reborn, we are extremely excited that Heavensward will build upon this with new and diverse gameplay and content that continue to be the hallmarks of the online FINAL FANTASY experience.”
