Final Fantasy 14: Heavensward adding flying mounts

Final Fantasy XIV's upcoming Heavensward expansion is slated to receive a slew of new updates, with flying chocobo mounts among them.


Square Enix took a trip to London this weekend for its Final Fantasy XIV Fan Fest event, taking along with them some new information on the upcoming Heavensward expansion. The information was revealed during a live stream, which is now only open to channel subscribers. But some of the more notable items were posted on Twitter, including:

That's one new job, two new beast tribes, and all-new flying chocobos. This is only scratching the surface, as Square Enix plans to have even more reveals for the upcoming Tokyo Fan Festival in December.

For more immediate Final Fantasy XIV gratification, there's the upcoming 2.4 patch titled Dreams of Ice. This is the update that will include new story, side, class, and job quests, new items, housing improvements, the Rogue and Ninja jobs, PvP improvements, and the Final Coil of Bahamut. The preliminary patch notes have been released and that list is a massive one. Check out the full list on the Final Fantasy XIV website.

But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
