A new class called the Dark Knight will also debut with Heavensward.
Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn’s first expansion will be Heavensward and Square Enix is adding a fair amount of new content to the game.
At the London Fan Festival, director Naoki Yoshida confirmed flying mounts for the expansion. There will be a total of six and these will include a Black Chocobo, which is the first flying mount you can obtain. That’s not all – you’ll also be able to own an airship, though flying it will be limited to the new areas in Heavensward only.
Other new additions in the expansion include the Dark Knight, a tank that specializes in greatswords and won’t require any base class for players to try out (besides utilizing the power of darkness); two new beast tribes (Vanu Vanu and the Gnath); and a new gunslinger class that is expected to be revealed in the coming weeks.
