Yoshida also revealed the game will add flying mounts, including black Chocobos. Six flying mount varieties are in the works with a seventh planned depending on fan feedback. Airships are also planned with single-rider versions and multi-rider versions. The new beast tribes are called the "Vanu Vanu" and "Gnath." The Vanu Vanu's primal is the "Bismarck" and the Gnath's is a laser sword wielding bug called "Ravana."
The Heavensward expansion will debut next spring and will move into the Ishgard area and the country's Dragonsong War with Dravinia will be a key plot point. The Wyrmking's fight against Thordan and his Knights Twelve will also be a major focus in the expansion.
SQUARE-ENIX will add The Holy See of Ishgard and multiple "new areas," new "challenging" dungeons, new "high-end" raids, new gear, recipes, airships, primals jobs, and a new race. Inaccessible areas like Dravinia will be opened and player's level cap will be increased to 60. The expansion was announced at the Final Fantasy Festival in Las Vegas last weekend.
Finally, Yoshida also teased about a new gunner class, which will be announced during the Tokyo Fan Festival, which takes place next month. Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward will release in 2015.
