With the 2.4 update just out the door, Square Enix released more details about the next expansion for Final Fantasy XIV, titled Heavensward.
- Dark Knight has been confirmed as a tank job, wielding a two-handed greatsword and, uniquely, will not require a base class like all current jobs.
- Flying mounts will also be added, chiefly to navigate a region consisting of floating islands. Black chocobos and single-passenger airships are two such mounts; it is not yet known what others will be available.
- Two more beast tribes will be added, along with their respective primals. The Vanu Vanu are paired with Bismarck, and the Gnath worship Ravana.
Heavensward is planned for a spring 2015 launch.
