By   /   Mar 31, 2015

Square Enix has announced the release of Final Fantasy XIV patch 2.55. The patch is also dubbed as “Before the Fall” and offers players with the conclusion to “A Realm Reborn” storyline.

However, Community Project Manager Hergen Thaens says that “Before the Fall” will prepare us for the upcoming Heavensward DLC. Meaning the end won’t actually be an end but a new beginning.

Here are some of the highlihgt from patch 2.55:

There be Dragons
There is a war going on, and you’re right at the brink – your introduction to the millennia-lasting Dragonsong War will be all but gentle.

Make Contact
The Holy See of Ishgard has been isolated from the rest of Eorzea for a long time. Make contact with this fabled city-state – laying the foundation for your adventures in Heavensward!

Prepare Yourself
With less than three months left, take advantage of the addition of the Final Coil of Bahamut to the Duty Finder and the removal of the weekly limit on rewards in the World of Darkness to prepare yourself for the challenges to come. But most importantly, complete the brand new story quest “Before the Dawn” introduced in patch 2.55, to get immediate access to Heavensward content and head out to the fabled Ishgard right on release!

Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn – Heavensward is going to be released on June 23 for PC, PS4 and PS3. You can pre-order a copy for $39.99 from Square Enix store however, the developer has also stated that pre-orders will soon be available on PSN as well.
