Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn is set to get a host of new features when its first expansion, Heavensward, launches next spring.
At today's Fanfest in London, game director and producer Naoki Yoshida took to the stage to build on the initial news out of Las Vegas last week to confirm flying mounts will be coming to the popular MMO, along with a new tanking Dark Knight job.
With regards to flying mounts, Yoshida explained the first such beast we were likely to get our hands on will be the Black Chocobo but eventually we'll be able to get our very own personal airship built by Cid. Taking off and landing will be permitted in any of the zones added to the game in Heavensward, and new areas will incorporate flying islands and rocks to encourage exploration. As for whether you'll discover treasure, rare monsters or something else entirely on these platforms, we were told to wait and see.
