It also adds new areas, and you can expect there to be a "full standalone game's worth of content." A fourth residential area is also being added, while there will be new Primals, dungeons, and high-end raids, too.

No Caption Provided

When Square Enix announced Stormblood in October, it scheduled it to launch in early summer 2017, so the June date aligns with that.

Stormblood is a follow-up to a previous expansion called Heavensward; read GameSpot's review of that expansion here.
