posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
New areas, jobs, classes, race planned for next spring

Game developer Square Enix announced the first expansion for its Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn massive multi-player online role-playing game (MMORPG) on Saturday. The Heavensward expansion will debut next spring.

Heavensward will move into the Ishgard area and the country's Dragonsong War with Dravinia will be a key plot point. The Wyrmking's fight against Thordan and his Knights Twelve will also be a major focus in the expansion. Square Enix will add The Holy See of Ishgard and multiple "new areas," new "challenging" dungeons, new "high-end" raids, new gear, recipes, airships, primals jobs, and a new race.

Inaccessible areas like Dravinia will be opened and player's level cap will be increased to 60. The new content was presented at the Final Fantasy Festival in Las Vegas on Saturday.
