SYDNEY (9th July, 2014)– Square Enix, Ltd. today confirms Defenders of Eorzea, also known as Patch 2.3, for the popular FINAL FANTASY® XIV: A Realm Reborn™ online game is available from today.

The Patch also features Frontline, a three-faction PVP where up to 72 players can go head-to-head in direct combat.

More about Patch 2.3:

When the world is thrown into chaos, who will rise to defend those too weak to defend themselves? The Sahagin summoned Leviathan, Lord of the Whorl, that the unbridled fury of the sea would wash away those who would threaten their livelihood. Eorzea’s people turned to the Warriors of Light, who drove this sinister serpent back into the briny deep. Now, new voices can be heard. From the deserts of Thanalan, to the verdant woods of the Black Shroud, to the snowy peaks of Coerthas, these voices cry out for a champion. Who will heed their call as the defender of Eorzea?
