If you play FFXIV then get ready for the upcoming expansion by purchasing it now. Launching 6/13/15, the expansion has a few neat things being offered. First is the complete experience edition, which is both FFXIV and Heavensward which will retail for $59.99. The expansion alone is retailing for $39.99. As a quick disclaimer, if you use the Steam version you will need to buy the expansion on Steam.From there, there is two collectors editions available coming in at $59.99 and $129.99. The $59.99 edition is the digital edition and has the following extras:

  • Exclusive In-Game Flying Griffin Mount
  • Take to the skies and fly through the clouds on the back of the majestic griffin.
  • Dark Knight Cecil-themed Baron Helm
  • Relive the magic of FINAL FANTASY IV with this specially designed headgear exclusive to the Collector’s Edition.
  • Wind-up Kain
  • Summon a clockwork rendition of Kain Highwind, legendary dragoon from the mythical kingdom of Baron.

The physical edition, at $129.99 has the following (in addition to the above):

  • Expertly Crafted Dragon Mount Figure 
  • The Art of Eorzea – Heavensward – Artbook 
  • Additional Content Disc: Eorzea in Motion - A Realm Revisited.
  • A collectable box.

That's pretty much what the offerings are. Heavensward should be a fun and exciting expansion. Those who don't wish to pre-order, there is a penalty for not doing so. You won't be able to access early access or get these additional features (early access not available for the FFXIV and expansion bundle):
