When Nocturne for Heroes debuts in Final Fantasy XIV tomorrow, they will be able to take part in an epic FFXIV crossover event with FFXV. The event begins on April 16th and lasts through May 27th and players will have the opportunity to see FFXV protagonist, Noctis, in the game. Perhaps best of all, players can earn the four-passenger Regalia vehicle alongside Noctis’s “attire, hairstyle and FFXV themed orchestrion rolls”.
If you’re getting pumped for this summer’s release of Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers, then you’re definitely going to want to swing by the new microsite that has new information about the story, challenges, and systems coming with the expansion.

From today through June 17th, former players of Final Fantasy XIV can participate in a login event to check out all of the new additions to the game since their last visit.

Once a player logs in, they will have the next seven days to run around Eorzea at will.
From April 9th to April 22nd, Final Fantasy XIV players will be able to take part in the annual Hatching Tide event.

Participants can score “a range of Spriggan-themed armor and egg-citing banquets” for their efforts.

Automatic Demolition was disabled temporarily on the Aether/Primal Data Centers back in October of 2018 due to Hurricane Michael. For those that don’t know, or don’t remember, Hurricane Michael devastated Florida as it moved through the panhandle and into Georgia and North Carolina.

During Sydney’s Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras over this past weekend, Square Enix teamed up with Sydney Gaymers to bring a Final Fantasy XIV-themed float to the parade.

FFXIV is another world that continues to grow and expand online. I would like to continue developing this world, hand in hand with communities” everywhere.

While in-game weddings have been available in Final Fantasy XIV for a long while, it’s not something that the players themselves could have a similar wedding “in real life”.

Reservations for the $31,500 FFXIV-themed extravaganza will open in the next several weeks according to game producer Naoki Yoshida.
From February 28th to March 13th, Final Fantasy XIV players can take part in the Little Ladies’ Day seasonal event. “As ladies stroll the avenues of Ul’dah, dancing among drifting peach petals and faces aglow with delight, one cannot help but remember what Sultan Baldric Thorne knew so well?that each and every girl deserves to be treasured. On this Little Ladies’ Day, however, one in particular will need a kind adventurer’s help if the festival is to be a dream come true.”
