Final Fantasy XIV delayed Reflections in Crystal, but the wait is finally over, as the new content will finally release tomorrow, along with a new expanded free trial and plenty of content. In a post on the official Playstation Blog, community manager Natasha Cheng outlines all of the changes.

In addition to those changes, you can also view the entire list of patch notes right here. The expanded free trial will have far fewer restrictions than the previous free trial. What new players can expect from the new free trial is:

  • The level cap for all classes and jobs for the free trial has been increased to level 60.
  • Players can now try out a total of thirteen different jobs and classes, including the three jobs added with Heavensward — Dark Knight, Machinist, and Astrologian.
  • The Au Ra race is available to play as.
  • The Palace of the Dead has now been fully unlocked, and players can traverse as far as the deepest floor.

Changes have also been made to the Realm Reborn main scenario storyline which has been streamlined to get new players to Heavensward faster than before. Cheng also outlines some helpful tips in getting new players started on their free trial, so if you haven’t had the chance to get into FFXIV quite yet, now is a great time to do so.

Patch 5.3 that brings Reflections in Crystal to the FFXIV playerbase will also introduce several other content additions including a second installment of the Nier crossover, YoRHa: Dark Apocalypse content. You can read more about the latest content update in our previous coverage as well.
