Today, SQUARE ENIX announced the release of Patch 2.55, titled “Before the Fall” Part Two, for FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn. The update implements the finale of the A Realm Reborn story.
The spectacular conclusion to FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn prepares adventurers for the upcoming expansion, Heavensward™, the title’s first major expansion releasing on June 23, 2015. New and lapsed players are urged to join their fellow adventurers in uncovering the mysteries of A Realm Reborn as completing the final main scenario quest “Before the Dawn,” introduced in Patch 2.55, will be required to gain access to Heavensward content.
Patch 2.55 Overview
A great wyrm’s roar echoes through the skies of Coerthas, calling all dragonkind to war. The Gates of Judgement, Ishgard’s outermost defenses, now come under attack. With the city’s very survival in the balance, can the Scions of the Seventh Dawn rally the Eorzean Alliance─or is the Holy See doomed to fall?
