If you’ve been looking for a reason to return to the world of FINAL FANTASY XIV Online, we have a pretty good one for you. Select FINAL FANTASY XIV Online players can play the game’s first expansion, Heavensward, at the best possible price - free.

The offer’s available to any players who own the base game A Realm Reborn, or the FINAL FANTASY XIV Online Starter Edition, from now until June 27, 2019.

To be crystal clear (and what would FINAL FANTASY be without crystals), this is the full version of Heavensward, including all content from its updates, and once you download it, it’s yours to keep in perpetuity.

What is FINAL FANTASY XIV: Heavensward?

The Heavensward expansion takes you to the city state of Ishgard, which is embroiled in a thousand-year war with the Dravanian Horde. It’s up to the Warriors of Light to explore the ancient secrets hidden in the city’s past, and put an end to the Dragonsong War. Take a look at the trailer:

The version available to players includes all content from the expansion and its patch update cycle, including main scenario quests, dungeons, side-quests, trials and more.

You’ll also get access to flying mounts, three additional jobs - Dark Knight, Astrologian, and Machinist - an additional playable race: the Au Ra.

How do you get FINAL FANTASY XIV: Heavensward?

If you own either FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn or the FINAL FANTASY XIV Online Starter Edition on PC or Mac, you can download Heavensward now.

PS4 users can download the expansion from the PlayStation Store. If you have an existing copy of FINAL FANTASY XIV Online Starter Edition, or A Realm Reborn, it’ll be marked as free to download.

Also worth noting - the Heavensward offer’s not just good for existing players - it’s also a fantastic opportunity for anyone who wants to get started in FINAL FANTASY XIV Online.

If you pick up the FINAL FANTASY XIV Online Starter Edition today on the PlayStation Store (assuming ‘today’ is before the June 29), you’ll still get access to the full Heavensward expansion.

Heavensward is a fantastic, content-rich expansion to FINAL FANTASY XIV Online, and if you're yet to play it, you should definitely pick it up while it’s available at no additional cost.

To remind you, the offer runs until 27 June, 2019 - go grab it while you can!
