As with each major update, there is a lot of exciting content to tackle and I'd like to introduce PlayStation Blog readers to some of the major points to experience.

First off, if you haven't seen it, check out the Patch 2.5 - Before the Fall trailer!





We've got new dungeons for you and your fellow adventurers to challenge, including the massive "Keeper of the Lake!" Here you'll be tasked with climbing inside the wreckage of a giant Garlean airship that was destroyed by wyrm lord Midgardsormr.

7w ago - Square Enix Associate Product Marketing Manager Scott Strichart revealed the Final Fantasy Type-0 HD Collector's Edition for PlayStation 4 today with details below, as follows:

Good evening! It's a little later than we usually post, but we wanted to bring you this bit of news as soon as it broke. Today, er, tonight, we're happy to announce that Final Fantasy Type-0 HD is getting its very own Collector's Edition.

Available in limited quantities, you can lock in your order on this premium collection of cool stuff now, for $99.99. Ah, but what's in it, you ask? Well, in industry circles, we call the image below a "beauty shot," and with good reason! Look upon its majesty.

Let's discuss what you're seeing, shall we? We'll start with the golden Steel Book case, featuring what I personally think is one of long-time Final Fantasy artist Yoshitaka Amano's finest pieces - the goddesses of Orience. On the inside is the Japanese kanji for the game title: 零, or "Rei," meaning "zero," and 式, or "shiki," meaning "type." We know you guys appreciate authenticity.

The Steel Book holds both the game disc and a 15-track collection of songs hand-picked by the game's composer, Takeharu Ishimoto. If the name doesn't ring a bell, he also did the score for Crisis Core -Final Fantasy...

13w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Justin Massongill posted up a Final Fantasy XIV Q&A dubbed Headed Heavensward on PlayStation 4 (and PlayStation 3) today with details below.

To quote: It's a good time to be an Eorzean. Final Fantasy XIV patch 2.4, Dreams of Ice, has just released, adding new dungeons, the rogue class and ninja job, a new primal battle with long-standing series summon Shiva, The Final Coil of Bahamut - the third and final chapter of FFXIV's ultimate end-game raid, and countless other tweaks and new features.

Square Enix also just announced FFXIV 3.0 Heavensward, a whole new expansion that will add way too much content for me to list in an opening paragraph. Well okay, a few highlights: Dark Knight class! New areas and primals! New playable race! Flying Chocobos and single-rider airships! That's all coming in Spring 2015.

Finally, fans worldwide have had the chance to attend the first-ever FFXIV Fan Festival - recently held in Las Vegas and London, with an upcoming stop in Tokyo. I attended the first of these events, and had the great pleasure of sitting down with Naoki Yoshida (Yoshi-P to his friends and fans), the producer and director of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn.

Naoki Yoshida: Thank you so much for taking time to come to the Final Fantasy XIV...

Video: Final Fantasy XIV Patch 2.3: Defenders of Eorzea Now Live

30w ago - Square Enix Community Project Manager Hergen Thaens shared a video today spotlighting the Final Fantasy XIV Patch 2.3 announcing Defenders of Eorzea is now live!

To quote: Good morning, everyone! Every few months, something magical happens here at Square Enix.

While we're watching all of you adventurers, fighting your way through Eorzea, we think to ourselves "We should give them more. We can give them more. It's been three months already!" - and then, in a secret and mysterious ceremony, High Priest of the Code Yoshida-san gets the dev team together, places a development PC in a magic circle, together with some Final Fantasy artifacts, energy drinks and fast food, and, using ancient magic, summons forth a mighty content update!

Well, ok. There may be a lot more actual work and a bit less actual magic involved. But that doesn't change the fact that as you are reading this, the update has just been applied to the servers! Also, I'd really love to see the scene described above in art form - any artists reading this?

What do you mean, you don't know what this update adds to the game? We can't have that. Watch the 2.3 trailer right here, right now, and then tell me you're not looking forward to joining in!
