Well, I guess you guys can ransack my stuff again. But only this one extra time.
After months of anticipation for the community, Final Fantasy XIV‘s first expansion launches today. Heavensward is available now for players who didn’t preorder or jump in on early access, offering a raised level cap, new areas, new instances, three new jobs, more story… in short, more of Final Fantasy XIV. As an expansion does.

Producer and director Naoki Yoshida took the opportunity to address a new letter to the community, celebrating how far the game has come and the player community that’s kept it strong and lively. He also promises that there are more patches to plan and a next expansion to start developing. You can watch the launch trailer again just below, and stay tuned for our own first impressions of the game later in the day.

Really enjoying the expansion. Was in early access so had a slight head start on some people. i love my personal airship. I get some pretty serious ‘Skies of Arcadia’ feels when cruising through the ‘Churning Mists’ on it.

The ye olde internet tactic of when the obvious is pointed out, is to instead deflect and misdirect. Seems to adopted from the common drive by troll, to the developer from the big name gaming company whose lived far too long in his or her sheltered hubris. Just saying.

Yeah they really shouldn’t draw any comparisons between a meager content patch and an entire fucking expansion, especially one from Square Enix who’s been kicking Blizz’s ass even on content patches.

…it’s almost like saying, “Why play Heavensward, when I work for the company that gives me 6.2!” I suspect that kind of redundancy is thought to sell well.

Karl_Hungus If I recall a dev actually liked a post like week on twitter referring to that fact with a message like ‘why play Heavensward when I got 6.2!’ that didn’t work out as planned.

And it’s the same exact day a new tier of raiding launches in Warcraft. Coincidence? Blizz would have you believe so.
