Square Enix has announced Stormblood, the next expansion for the MMO Final Fantasy XIV.
The new expansion promises to include new jobs; an increased level cap up to level 70; new areas to explore; a revamped battle system; and all-new dungeons, raids, and alliance battle content. More information on Stormblood will be shared at the Tokyo Fan Festival event on December 24-25, 2016, as well as during the European Fan Festival in Frankfurt, scheduled for February 18-19, 2017.
The summer 2017 release of Stormblood will also mark the end of PlayStation 3 support of FFXIV.

Final Fantasy XIV recently celebrated its third anniversary, and has over 6 million players worldwide.
