Final Fantasy XIV Celebrates 3rd Anniversary

Three years, six million players, and still going strong

Final Fantasy XIV

SquareEnix’s incredibly popular MMORPG Final Fantasy XIV has just hit its 3rd Anniversary and is celebrating in full swing – along with the game’s whopping six million paying players

In celebration of FFXIV‘s latest anniversary, SquareEnix hosted a 14-hour broadcast, making sure to invite its 6 mil+ players along for the adventure. One notable feature of the celebratory broadcast was the 31st installment of the game’s ongoing “Letter from the Producer LIVE” series, in which Producer/Director Naoki Yoshida gave viewers a sneak peak of the game’s latest upcoming game content, answered fan-submitted questions and comments, and much more. Yoshida’s segment over the upcoming content covered the entirety of Patch 3.4, Soul Surrender, which released on September the 27th of this year. This upcoming patch includes new quests for the main scenario, trials, dungeons, and the lat stage for the 8-player raid Alexander.

Additionally, Final Fantasy XIV has launched an event known as “The Rising”. A seasonal event, The Rising is a celebration of remembrance of FFXIV, and features a variety of fun activities in which to participate, and plenty of in-game rewards for players to obtain and add to their collection. Between the current anniversary festivities, and the free trail available to newcomers, now just might be the best time for those interested in SquareEnix’s hit RPG to dive in headfirst.

Starting out with nothing more than a Game Boy and a copy of Donkey Kong Land, Kenny has happily been gaming for almost his entire life. Easily-excitable and a bit on the chatty side, Kenny has always been eager to share gaming-related thoughts, opinions, and news with others and has been doing so on Hey Poor Player since 2014 and has previously worked with both PKMNcast and SCATcast. Although his taste in gaming spreads across a wide number of companies and consoles, Kenny holds a particular fondness for Nintendo handheld consoles. He is also very proud of his amiibo collection. You can also find him on Twitter @SuperBayleef talking about video games and general nonsense. Some of his favorite games include Tetris Attack, Pokémon Black Version 2, The World Ends With You, Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance, Yo-kai Watch, Donkey Kong Country 2, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, Kirby's Dreamland 3, Mega Man X, and Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia (among many others).
