Final Fantasy XIV Online Launches Oceania Data Center

New event also announced



As part of their ongoing effort to bring MMORPG action to as many parts of the world as possible, Square Enix has announced the official release of their Final Fantasy XIV Online Oceania Data Center.

Launching alongside today’s 6.08 patch, the Oceania Data Center will be accessible to players, allowing them to create new characters, with Home World Transfers being permitted from January 26, 2022. Five new worlds–all of which have been designated “New Worlds”–will be available for players to access, meaning that players who create or transfer characters in these worlds will be able to access special bonuses such as:

  • Free Home World Transfer for player transferring from another World
  • Double EXP for both newly created and transferred characters up to level 80
  • Gold and Silver Chocobo Feathers exchangeable for special in-game rewards
  • And more!


Additionally, due to the opening of the Oceania Data Center raising the global server capacity and the fact existing players’ play time and log-in tendencies are gradually returning to normal, the decision has been made to resume sales of the Final Fantasy XIV Online Starter Edition and Complete Edition as of today. New registrations for the Free Trial remain suspended as of today, but the situation will be monitored regularly to identify a time in which registrations can be reopened.

Last, but not least, the All Saints’ Wake in-game event is currently underway. Starting today, January 25, up until February 2, this spooky event will allow players to embark on a new quest via the Adventurer’s Guild in order to obtain special rewards, including:

  • Clown’s Outfit – Clothing Set
  • Modern Cosmetics – Clowning Around – Face Paint
  • Haunted Pumpkin Set – Outdoor Furnishing Item
  • Pumpkin Flower Vase – Tabletop Furnishing Item



Phew, that was a lot of Final Fantasy XIV Online information! Are you excited about anything that’s been unveiled today? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!

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).
