Final Fantasy 14's first expansion, Heavensward, has been dated, with it due to hit all platforms on June 23rd.

First announced last year, Heavenward introduces a whole new location while expanding the existing play area, adds new flying mounts and also introduces a new loot system, a brand new race and three new jobs. It will also introduce an all-new raid, Alexander, which will be available in both normal and hard modes.

Heavensward was originally scheduled for release this Spring, so the June release date sees a slight delay. An Early Access version will be available for some players from June 19th.

"We think of it as a standalone," said Final Fantasy 14's director Naoki Yoshida during a panel at PAX East. "There's that much content in there."

Heavensward's release will also be accompanied by an all-new Mac version of the game, courtesy of developer TransGaming. The expansion will be available in a standalone, collector's edition and all-in-one bundle with Final Fantasy 14, with pre-orders going live on March 16th.
