Other content highlights include the Red Mage class, Swimming, and Diving. Heavensward let you take to the skies and Stormblood lets you make use of those swim suits for a change.
Of course they announced details and even showed a mockup of the collector’s edition at the fan fest. The collector’s edition will have an artbook, a figure of Zenos (the main antagonist of Stormblood), a cloth map of Eorzea, a decal, and an outer box with Yoshitaka Amano art. Preorders will begin on January 24, 2017. The digital collector’s edition will include a Syldra mount, a Bartz (from Final Fantasy V) minion, a chicken knife weapon for the Red Mage.
Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood will release on June 20, 2017 on PlayStation 4, Mac, and PC.
Thanks, Nova Crystallis.
