Major updates will come to Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn every three months, says director and producer Naoki Yoshida.
"We're planning on doing a major update every three months once the game has been released and continuously adding large-scale content," Yoshida told PlayStation Blog.
"Ongoing support for the game will be included in the monthly subscription.
"Of course we also have long-term plans to release full expansion packs, so watch out for future updates on those, too."
The game’s first update will bring a large-scale housing system and the first player-versus-player content, called The Wolves Den, said Square Enix.
“To put it simply, every single aspect of A Realm Reborn has been redeveloped, improved, and upgraded since the original Final Fantasy XIV launched,” said Yoshida.
“I’m fine with it if people want to think of A Realm Reborn as a completely new title in its own right!”
Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn is out today for PlayStation 3 and Windows PC, and in 2014 for PlayStation 4.
