Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood announced
Final Fantasy XIV is releasing its second major expansion, Stormblood, early Summer 2017. At today’s FFXIV fan fest, Game Director Naoki Yoshida announced Version 4.0 and a variety of coming changes.
Update 4.0 increases the level cap from 60 to 70 and introduces new jobs, but Yoshida didn’t announce specifics. There will also be new equipment for existing jobs.
Stormblood brings new areas, and you can expect there to be at least as many new ones as in the previous expansion, Heavensward–Yoshida promised it will have a “full standalone game’s worth of content.” A fourth residential area is also being added, the setting for which wasn’t unveiled because it’s tied to the main storyline. There will be new Primals, dungeons, and high-end raids, too.
Check out the Teaser:
“Square Enix will also be revamping FFXIV’s battle system and overhauling the skill system, to ameliorate concerns that the current one doesn’t accommodate all of the actions high-level characters must do. Also, since changing classes and necessary skillsets is clunky, “We’re regrouping and recategorizing skills so they’re categorized as roles rather than jobs,” Yoshida said. “From those shared roll skills and actions, you’ll choose which you need.”
For example, skills necessary for a Paladin to tank will be groups together under a “tank” category rather than a simple “Paladin” category. Essentially, this will clear up space on the hotbars.”
