If anyone knowsFinal Fantasy XIV like the back of their hand, it is definitely Naoki Yoshida, the producer and director of the game. To mark the latest anniversary of the MMO, he wanted to extend an invite to join him and millions of other dedicated players in enjoying the multiplayer RPG.
Knowing that joining a well established community – and try an all-new adventure – can be daunting, Yoshida-san offers his advice for PlayStation 4 fans who are interested in joining but don’t know where to begin, and explains exactly why there’s no better time to join in the fun.
Having brought an end to the thousand-year conflict between dragon and man in the north, the Warrior of Light and his comrades prepare to liberate Ala Mhigo, a land conquered by the Garlean Empire twenty years ago. Meanwhile, in the Far East, the freedom fighters of the fallen nation of Doma struggle to rekindle the fires of hope in their countrymen.
The time has come to embark upon a new adventure to realms near and far─to rise up with the people of Eorzea and the Far East, and cast down the curs of Garlemald!
We’ve got a good one for ya this week! Ryan and Justin fawn over their time with Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood, Sid has lots of nice things to say about Logan (the movie!), and our heroes face the inevitable truth that E3 is right around the corner. Enjoy!
Good news – the clock isn’t ticking anymore!
The Final Fantasy XIV free trial has unequipped its 14-day time restriction. Free trial players are now able to access all content up to level 35 without any clock ticking the play time away!
The gang’s all here! Well, two of them anyway. That’s right, this week’s show sees Ryan and Justin at the reins, which means there’s nobody to stop them from talking about Final Fantasy for an hour straight! Except they don’t do that, because that wouldn’t make for a great show. Come for an interview with Ubisoft about Ghost Recon Wildlands, stay for Justin recounting his recent adventures in Japan.
Season’s greetings to all PlayStation.Blog readers from the Final Fantasy XIV team! With the end of the year quickly approaching, the citizens of Eorzea are busy preparing for the return of the annual Starlight Celebration seasonal event!
Welcome back — we’ve got fancy microphones and no idea how to use them! Join us for a decidedly less Power-ful show as Sid talks about Overwatch for like 20 minutes, then falls asleep when Justin recounts his experience at FFXIV Fan Festival. Plus, oodles of PS VR chat, and some early impressions of Titanfall 2’s single-player campaign.
You guys. What a show.
I’m at the Final Fantasy XIV Fan Festival in Las Vegas this weekend, where Producer and Director Naoki Yoshida took the stage moments ago to deliver the event’s keynote address and share some amazing news: details on the next Final Fantasy XIV expansion, Stormblood, due out in early summer 2017!
