Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn patch 2.55 arrives today


The grand finale of the main scenario of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn arrives today with the release of Patch 2.55 - Before the Fall - available now for Windows PC, the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4.

To mark the arrival of Patch 2.55, and the ending of the Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn main scenario, Producer / Director Naoki Yoshida, sends a message to fans and players.



“First of all, I would like to thank all the Final Fantasy XIV players around the world who have supported the development team in bringing the current story to its climax, as well as to the development and operations team that have worked around the clock – thank you very much! As the Patch 2.0 series comes to an end in Patch 2.55, I am very excited to see your reactions to the end of the Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn scenario!”

This conclusion to Final Fantasy: A Realm Reborn’s current story prepares adventurers for the next phase with the release of the title’s first major expansion, Heavensward, later this year on 23rd June. Players will need to complete the brand new story quest “Before the Dawn”, introduced in Patch 2.55, in order to gain immediate access to the first quest of Heavensward and head out to the fabled Ishgard right on release.

Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn is available now on the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and Windows PC and coming soon to Mac. A free 30-day trial is included for new accounts, with monthly subscriptions starting at £7.69 / 10.99 €. 

Heavensward will release globally on the 23rd June 2015.

am i reading that right? you have to complete the main story of FF 14 before you access the new expansion? I don't think i'm anywhere near completed the main game, I spent most my time dancing in front of random people and doing side missions! haha. I need to renew my subscription and complete it before the expansion is out is guess :)

@Turniplord , your 1st assumption is sort of correct you do need to Finish the Whole of the Main story quest from 2.0-2.55 to be able to continue the story quest in Heavensward. " Before the Dawn " is the last main story quest in 2.55 added today as can be seen in patch notes :) http://eu.finalfantasyxiv.com/lodestone/topics/detail/ca7d7d74c94b623db3991220110aa80df21ff1fc

thanks jay - was kinda hoping i got it wrong haha! Means I'll need to play the vanilla a bit more then i guess and possibly hold back on getting the expansion if I can't play straight away - the flying mounts were drawing me in!
