FFXIV Patch 2.55 Now Live: Prepare for Heavensward!

Dear Final Fantasy XIV players and players-to-be,

You have kept us busy. Although that is probably an understatement. With the launch of patch 2.51 and Gold Saucer, our servers showed herculean strength under your immense desire for a game of Triple Triad and some Chocobo racing. Then, the pre-orders for the boxed Heavensward versions started, and darn did you want to pre-order. That was a very exciting couple of days.

Final Fantasy XIV Patch 2.55

But the most exciting time is yet to come! With Heavensward less than three months away, we finally present you with both an end and a new beginning. In patch 2.55, you will finally learn the conclusion to the A Realm Reborn storyline – or will you…? Get prepared for your new journey into the unknown!

Patch 2.55 is now online!

There be Dragons

There is a war going on, and you’re right at the brink – your introduction to the millennia-lasting Dragonsong War will be all but gentle.

Make Contact

The Holy See of Ishgard has been isolated from the rest of Eorzea for a long time. Make contact with this fabled city-state – laying the foundation for your adventures in Heavensward!

Prepare Yourself

With less than three months left, take advantage of the addition of the Final Coil of Bahamut to the Duty Finder and the removal of the weekly limit on rewards in the World of Darkness to prepare yourself for the challenges to come. But most importantly, complete the brand new story quest “Before the Dawn” introduced in patch 2.55, to get immediate access to Heavensward content and head out to the fabled Ishgard right on release!

Get Early Access to Heavensward

You want to walk into the unknown ahead of the official release? Then pre-order your boxed copy now at the Square Enix store! Of course we’re also working on making digital pre-orders available on the PSN Store as soon as possible.

So many things to do, and I’m not even sure I can go cold turkey and leave the Gold Saucer! It’s just so cozy and warm, and the next Cactpot ticket might be my big break!

See you in-game!

  • I played the core game back on the PS3 but just couldn’t get into it. This however looks choice! May have to give it another go :)

  • I’d like to prepare for Heavensward, but for the past three weeks (or is it four?) since the expansion announcement, there has been NO preorder/ early access appearing on PSN.

    When is the preorder coming out? No one, including SE, seems to have the faintest clue?

  • @2 last lines “You want to walk into the unknown ahead of the official release? Then pre-order your boxed copy now at the Square Enix store! Of course we’re also working on making digital pre-orders available on the PSN Store as soon as possible”

  • “Before the Fall” sounds like it’s referring to some 1.0 era content. As someone who has played 1.0, it would be intersting to see what comes back, if anything.

    To tell you the truth (if anyone from Square Enix is listening), there’s only one thing that the 1.0 version had better than A Realm Reborn….. THE SOUNDTRACK!!

    Good heavens. Nobuo Uematsu’s FFXIV soundtrack is absolutely beautiful, while Masayoshi Soken’s ARR soundtrack is absolutely below-standard for a Final Fantasy soundtrack. True, it’s better than most other RPG soundtracks, but the bar has been set pretty high by Uematsu’s previous FF soundtracks, including FFXIV.

    Please patch back at least some of Uematsu’s soundtrack. I can give you a great example… Uematsu’s “Twilight Over Thanalan” is 100x a better field theme than Soken’s “To the Sun” and that’s pretty much a fact.

  • Make personal properties and gardens available for ALL players. There is no reason that your “server space” should be an issue when a F2P like Warframe offers personal spaces (dojos) with nearly unlimited expansion to absolutely everyone who wants their own, for free. As it stands, these properties are not suitable for Free Companies. They belong to the person who bought it and are no more than a place for other members to stable their chocobos. We can’t use the gardens or make any adjustments that we aren’t authorized to make. It’s horrible.

  • Man, I can’t wait to see how the 2.0 story plays out tonight.

  • @Fallin. I buy all my content digitally. I don’t need a box of useless paper, plastic and junk cluttering up my office. A lot of folks are digital only, and I can buy it on the PC in that format right now.

    SE just wants us to use their horrible online store (it is horrid, read the reviews).

    “As soon as possible” is quite indefinite and left open to interpretation.

  • @christian389. I buy all my content digital as well. yes its left open to interpretation, but they acknowledge a pre order on the psn. I don’t know about you but I can wait for one to go up, it wont make a difference if I pre order now or later.

  • Why do you need to pre-order today? Or next week?

  • Wow, that ending. The wait for Heavansward just became that much tougher.

  • Legendary_King09

    Yeah the end to this was amazing. The wait is indeed going to be a long one. Can’t wait :)
