In October 2016, the second major expansion, ''Stormblood'', was announced with the first [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mAobb8_SzHY teaser trailer]] at the Las Vegas Fan Festival, and released on June 20th, 2017. The expansion focuses on the city-state of Ala Mhigo and the country of Othard, which were conquered 20 years prior to the events of ''A Realm Reborn'' by the Garlean Empire and detailing the fight of the respective countries' resistances in their attempt to liberate their homes from the Empire's control. Much like the previous expansion putting a focus on the Dragoon job hailing from Ishgard, the expansion puts a focus on the Monk fighting style which originated from Ala Mhigo, but also brings along two new classes, the classic {{Samurai}} and the [[MagicKnight rapier-wielding and spellslinging Red Mage]].

The game was initially met with mixed-to-bad reactions from players and reviewers alike, citing [[ObviousBeta numerous glitches and bugs, poorly implemented features]] and an unbalanced in-game economy as the game's main problems. Creator/SquareEnix responded by [[http://lodestone.finalfantasyxiv.com/pl/topics/detail?id=ae8d667b53355d8ea364fafa44d5253e4362e17f apologizing for the state of the game]], and [[YouHaveFailedMe replaced]] several key members of the development team. The new development team has greatly overhauled the game, addressing many of its original flaws.

A UsefulNotes/PlayStation3 version, originally scheduled for a March 2011 release and initially put on indefinite hold, was finally released alongside the ''Realm Reborn'' client in August 2013. An UsefulNotes/{{Xbox 360}} version was also in development, but has been canceled after they [[MoneyDearBoy failed to come to an agreement]] with Xbox Live and Microsoft. The UsefulNotes/PlayStation4 version was announced in E3 2013 and was released in April 2014. A UsefulNotes/PlayStationVita version has also been confirmed, along with a smartphone app called ''[[https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/final-fantasy-xiv-libra-eorzea/id682415504?mt=8 Libra Eorzea]]'' that will allow you to manage aspects of your character offline. Talks are still ongoing with Microsoft and there is potential for an Xbox One version.[[note]]Though it appears contingent on two things: one, the Xbox version absolutely must be allowed to talk to the same servers as the PC and [=PS3=] & 4 versions, which Microsoft seems to balk at; and two, the game should ideally not require an Xbox Live Gold subscription to access online functions, since it's already a subscription-based game and the additional fee would be unfair for Xbox players who otherwise don't use the Gold services for much. Whether Microsoft is willing to bend on either of these is unclear, and at one point Square seemed convinced they wouldn't.[[/note]]

''Final Fantasy XIV'' is the fourteenth game in the [[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons groin-grabbingly]] [[RunningGag popular]] ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' series. It is an {{MMORPG}}, similar to ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXI'', and was timed exclusively to the PC in its first release, and was a simultaneous PC & PS3 release in its second iteration (see below). In both its 2010 and 2013 releases, it had both a Standard and a [[LimitedSpecialCollectorsUltimateEdition Collector's Edition]], whose buyers were able to start the game 8 days early (in the 1.0 CE's case), [[{{Feelies}} get exclusive in-game items, a themed journal (in 1.0) or an artbook (2.0), and some other bells and whistles]].
