The second expansion of Final Fantasy XIV, Stormblood helps the MMO gain its footing with gameplay upgrades. New attacks and mechanics make fights more active, encouraging players to learn more about their classes and play efficiently to survive. The story of Stormblood is also good, even if it doesn’t reach the same heights as Heavensward. A tale of revolution split between two regions weakens the plot a bit, as it repeats several of the same plot beats, but Stormblood’s story is by no means dull. Nevertheless, though that go beyond the free trial will find much to love with Stormblood.
