      Join the Final Fantasy XIV and XVI teams at PAX East 2024 in Boston, where they will reveal the latest news, host exciting activities, and give away exclusive goodies!
      Following the success of the Fan Festival in Tokyo, Final Fantasy XIV is heading to another convention in early 2024: PAX East 2024 in Boston!
      PAX East will take place from Thursday, March 21 to Sunday, March 24, 2024, and the Expo Hall will be open from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. every day.
      Attendees can visit the Final Fantasy XIV booth anytime during the convention and meet the staff! You can also enjoy panels featuring both Final Fantasy XIV and Final Fantasy XVI, as well as other fun booth activities. Test your skills against Asura, the new boss, or try out some primal fights if you are new to the game. And of course, don't forget to snap some photos at the Final Fantasy photo spot!
      Naoki Yoshida and his team will also be hosting a Final Fantasy XIV and XVI panel to share the latest news and updates about both games!
      Two different panels will be hosted: 
      Friday, March 22 at 8:30 a.m. (PDT): Leviathan the (Not So) Lost is Here: The Rising Tide DLC for Final Fantasy XVI Saturday, March 23 at 9:00 a.m. (PDT): Journey to Dawntrail: The 10-Year Adventure of Final Fantasy XIV During the panels, you will receive a Jill Pixel pin as a souvenir, and if you attend on Saturday, you will get a beautiful Dawntrail Poster! However, stocks are limited, which means these goodies are in short supply, so be sure to arrive early for both panels.

      Additionally, for those attending PAX East, you will also be able to join the fight against the latest boss: Asura, the corrupted incarnation of a Manusya. Everyone who wins this battle will receive a T-shirt as a reminder of their victory.

      Please note that there is limited stock for these items, and your preferred size cannot be guaranteed.
      If you are new to the game and want to try out an early primal fight, you will also get a free copy of the Final Fantasy XIV Online Starter Edition for PC as a reward!
      Lastly, to prepare every Warrior of Light for their upcoming adventures in Tural, bucket hats will be given at the FFXIV booth, and all PAX East attendees will be able to grab an FFXIV-themed lanyard for their badges.

      For Warriors who are unable to attend PAX East in person, don't worry; both panels will be broadcast live on the following channels.
      FFXIV panels:

      Another wave of Final Fantasy XIV's Meister Quality Figure of Hydaelyn and Zodiark, featuring an in-game emote code, is available now. If you are interested, you can pre-order yours today!
      The Final Fantasy XIV Meister Quality Figure of Hydaelyn and Zodiark is back due to popular demand! The figure celebrates the end of the Hydaelyn and Zodiark saga, featuring two primordial forces in a dynamic pose. It is the perfect way to display the contrast of Light and Dark, as well as the significance behind it, in your own home.
      The figurine sold out quickly during the first wave, but Square Enix has opened up a second phase of pre-orders. You can reserve yours now for $359.99 / 369.99€ on the official website here: Meister Quality Firug - Hydaelyn & Zodiark

      The figure is made of ABS and PVC and measures approximately H 34.49 cm x W 29.00 cm x D 23.01 cm.
      The estimated shipping date is October 2024, but the date is subject to change and will be updated on the store page. 
      Purchasing the figure will also grant you a code for an in-game item: Ballroom Etiquette: Apocalyptic Charades. This emote code has been fixed and will apply to your entire service account, not just one character as previously stated in the description.
      Be careful when you receive the figure, as the code for the emote may only appear on the box. Do not discard the box before redeeming your item code. No replacements will be offered if you lose the code.
      If you are interested, you should hurry and secure your pre-order now, as availability is limited!

      Find out how to participate in the open beta test of Final Fantasy XIV on Xbox Series X|S, starting on February 21, 2024.
      Get ready for the Xbox Series X|S open beta test of Final Fantasy XIV, starting on Wednesday, February 21, 2024, at around 8:00 (GMT) or 19:00 (AEDT). If you are an Xbox player who has never tried Final Fantasy XIV before, you can now participate in the open beta test!
      This is a special opportunity for new players who have never tried Final Fantasy XIV before.
      Important information: DO NOT link your Microsoft account to your Square Enix account if you have previously purchased the free trial or the game on another platform before the official Xbox launch. Those who have already completed the free trial on another platform or who already own an FFXIV license will be unable to participate in the beta.
      The Final Fantasy XIV team asks that veteran players be patient, as playing on XBOX requires linking your Square Enix account to your FFXIV account, which cannot be undone. So be very cautious when linking both accounts!

      For new players who want to try the game on Xbox Series X/S during the open beta test, here's what you need to do:
      First, make sure the following privacy options have been set on your Xbox: Settings > Account > Privacy and online safety > Xbox privacy > view details and customize > communication and multiplayer: Enable the following settings: "You can join multiplayer games," set to Allow. "You can join cross-network play," set to Allow. "Others can communicate with voice, text, or invites," set to Everybody. "You can communicate outside of Xbox with voice & text," set to Everybody. From the previous view details & customize menu, select game content and confirm: "You can see and upload community creations," set to Everybody. From the Microsoft Store, look for Final Fantasy XIV and open the product page. From the “…” option menu, pick and download the Final Fantasy XIV Free Trial to your Xbox Series X|S. Once the installation is done, start the game and follow the on-screen instructions to begin your journey. The open beta test has the same content, features, and restrictions as the free trial version, except for the option to buy items from the online store. You will not require any Xbox Game Pass plan in order to play the open beta or the free trial. However, once the game fully releases on Xbox, if you intend to buy it, you will require the Xbox Game Pass to play it.
      The Xbox Series X|S version will be available immediately after the open beta test ends, but the exact date is still being discussed since the FFXIV team may require time to adjust things after the beta. You will be able to keep your Final Fantasy XIV game data and play without having to download the game again at launch.
      More details about any transfers and the actual release date will be published later, as well as information on how veteran gamers can continue to play on Xbox after launch. Let's welcome our Xbox friends to the wonderful world of Eorzea and accompany them on their journey with kindness and friendship!
