Stormblood is the upcoming second expansion to the Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn MMORPG made by Square Enix. It raises the level cap from 60 to 70, adding new areas, dungeons, gear, jobs, as well as new gameplay mechanics like swimming and diving. Stormblood takes place in the region of Ala Mhigo and features a new antagonist, Zenos yae Galvus.
With the 4.0 update, Final Fantasy XIV increases the system requirements for the PC version, and cuts PlayStation 3 support completely. A campaign is in place to allow gamers to carry over their account data to the PS4 version free of charge until the end of the year.
