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:
We're pleased to announce flying mounts will make their debut in the #Heavensward expansion pack set for spring 2015!— FINAL FANTASY XIV (@FF_XIV_EN) October 25, 2014
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.
