Making its world debut, the Stormblood teaser trailer showcases the Warrior of Light honing his new skills during a high-octane sparring match with a mysterious woman clad in red atop a colossal stone statue, while resistance fighters prepare for battle below.
The new expansion will include new jobs; an increased level cap up to level 70; sprawling new areas to explore; a revamped battle system; and all-new dungeons, raids, and alliance battle content.
More information on Stormblood will be shared at the Tokyo Fan Festival event on December 24-25, 2016, as well as during the European Fan Festival in Frankfurt, scheduled for February 18-19, 2017.
The summer 2017 release of Stormblood will also mark the end of PlayStation 3 support of FINAL FANTASY XIV. During the keynote, SQUARE ENIX detailed plans for a free upgrade service to the PlayStation 4 version, which will allow for players on the PlayStation 3 to seamlessly continue their adventures following the launch of Stormblood.
