FINAL FANTASY XIV ONLINE CELEBRATES 7TH ANNIVERSARY WITH ‘THE RISING’ IN-GAME EVENT

FINAL FANTASY® XIV Online today celebrates its 7th anniversary since the release of A Realm Reborn in 2013, introducing a special event that brings the festivities into the game for all to enjoy. The anniversary arrives alongside the title surpassing 20 million registered players as well as the release of Patch 5.3, which introduces an expanded Free Trial experience to make it easier than ever for new players to start their adventure.

The Rising anniversary seasonal event will run through September 14th and offers a unique questline whereby players will be tasked with helping out J’bhen Tia in Ul’dah. His exhibition of stained glass evokes memories of a pivotal moment in history, but he needs the assistance of a willing volunteer to ensure the event proceeds without a hitch! New rewards go to those who assist in this feat, including a Wind-up Ardbert minion and replica artwork to use in player housing.
 
All players level 15 and above, including new adventurers exploring Eorzea with the recently expanded Free Trial, are eligible to participate in the event and earn all of the rewards. Complete details about the event, including where players can begin the questline, may be found here: https://na.finalfantasyxiv.com/lodestone/special/2020/The_Rising/89gmadhdzc

Additionally, the Yo-kai Watch collaboration event is currently underway and will be available until the release of Patch 5.4. Players can obtain seventeen unique Yo-kai minions and weapons, as well as up to three mounts should they prove up to the challenge of collecting the full catalog of what’s on offer.
Patch 5.3 for FINAL FANTASY XIV: Shadowbringers™, titled Reflections in Crystal, released last week and brings a variety of new updates, including the final story act of the Shadowbringers expansion and update to the NieR-inspired YoRHa: Dark Apocalypse alliance raid series featuring a new story and thrilling battle encounters designed alongside guest creators Yosuke Saito and YOKO TARO.

Having recently announced 20 million total registered players, there has never been a better time for newcomers to begin their adventures in the critically acclaimed FINAL FANTASY XIV Online saga. The recently expanded Free Trial now includes all content from A Realm Reborn™ and the Heavensward™ expansion (and updates through Patch 3.56), as well as an additional playable race (Au Ra), and three additional playable jobs (Dark Knight, Astrologian, and Machinist). Free Trial players can enjoy hundreds of hours of award-winning gameplay and story experiences equivalent to two full FINAL FANTASY titles, without limit on playtime.
 
FINAL FANTASY XIV: Shadowbringers is rated T (Teen). Please visit the Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) website at www.esrb.org for more information about ratings.
