FFXIV: Heavensward Now Free for a Limited Time

Video game developer and publisher Square Enix announced today that Final Fantasy XIV players with the base game, A Realm Reborn, can now access the title’s first expansion, Heavensward, for free. 

This promotion is available as of today, May 2, through June 27 and supports all available platforms (Windows, Mac, and PlayStation 4). 

“This gives new and returning players a great opportunity to get a taste of the adventure that await in the second expansion pack, Stormblood,” said a Square Enix news release. 

If you’re interested in Heavenward’s story plot, a description can be found below:

It tells the story of the Warrior of Light as he journeys to Ishgard, a city-state mired in the Dragonsong War, a thousand-year conflict with the dragons of the Dravanian Horde. Players will get access to sprawling new areas, flying mounts, three additional jobs (Dark Knight, Astrologian, and Machinist), an additional playable race (the Au Ra), and more. In addition, those who take advantage of the offer will gain access to all the additional content that was introduced during the Heavensward patch series, including an array of dungeons, trials, raids, quests and more.

Final Fantasy XIV is scheduled to receive a third expansion pack, Shadowbringers, which is set to launch on July 2.
