Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward

Today is the day. Heavensward is here and Playstation systems and computers from all over are busily burning up the internet in downloading the first major expansion for Final Fantasy XIV.

Early access starts on June 19th for those who pre-ordered the game, so the servers have been down since late last night while everything is updated and patched and made ready for both the new and returning players.

A few things that bear keeping in mind amidst the rush:

  • FAMILY GAME NIGHT Triple Triad can now be played in private rooms and free company houses with the addition of a special gaming table to the areas.
  • I CAN FLY! While you will need to unlock the ability via a quest and unlock flying areas via more quests, it looks like it is true that certain mounts will now be able to fly. Make sure you change the setting in your control panel – default will be tap jump to fly, you can set it to be double tapping jump makes your mount fly.
  • 30 MIN IDLE BOOT If you are idle for 30 minute the game will boot you out, this is to reduce the server strain during this high congestion launch period. They will remove this restriction once again when things have settled back down.

I will be looking closer at all that Heavensward has to offer in future posts as well as providing tips for playing – particularly for PS3 users – as a way to get myself back to regular postings on this site.
