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.

      Dawntrail's official release date is just one week away! To celebrate the arrival of Final Fantasy XIV's upcoming expansion, the art team shared another illustration with us today featuring our erudite healer, the Sage!
      Eorzea's barrier healers are the embodiment of wisdom and healing, using their knowledge of aetherology, sorcery, and medicine to shield their allies. 
      Sages can use aether to create powerful barriers and restore health by wielding unique weapons known as Nouliths. With the ability to negate damage, the Sage is a pillar of support on the battlefield!

      If you want to join the Sages of Sharlayan's famed academy, study the depths of healing magic while still having a wide range of damage spells, and learn everything new that will come with Final Fantasy XIV's upcoming expansion, check out our updated Sage guide below:

      As we approach the one-week mark until the official release of Dawntrail, the Final Fantasy XIV art team has prepared another unique illustration for us today, showing the Summoner and their Carbuncle.

They have the unique ability to summon and bend the essences of primals like Bahamut and Phoenix to their will and receive their aid during a fight! Always by their side is their carbuncle friend, ensuring you are never traveling alone! Of course, as the image demonstrates, food is also an important part of pre-fight preparations! Buff-food all around!

      Players all over the world are excited for the early-access launch of Final Fantasy XIV's upcoming expansion, Dawntrail. However, depending on the platform, early access is not automatically given to everyone who pre-orders. Here is what you have to do to get early access!
      Early access begins on Friday, June 28, 2024, at 2:00 a.m. PDT, 11:00 GMT, allowing players to dive into the full version of the game before its official release on Tuesday, July 2, 2024. 
      Playing Dawntrail a few days early is a privilege granted to those who pre-order the game. If you pre-ordered through PlayStation®5, PlayStation®4, or Xbox Series X|S, you are automatically registered for both early access and the full game upon purchase, and you will not need any code.

      For players on Windows, Mac, or Steam, it is important to register the pre-order bonus code to participate in early access. You should have immediately received the early-access code per email after purchasing the game. You can register this code through the Mog Station; a special button only for Early Access codes should be available on your account.
      As for the release codes for PC users, Square Enix Store customers who have purchased Dawntrail will start receiving their registration codes via email starting Monday, June 24. The distribution is sequential, so patience is advised, as the process is designed to ensure all players receive their codes well before the official game launch.
      The option to enter a Dawntrail registration code will only become available on the Mog Station after the game's official launch post-early access. Any attempts to register the code beforehand will result in an "invalid code" error.

      Square Enix also reminds players to be mindful of spoilers. While there are no restrictions on content discussion, posting, or streaming in adherence to the Material Usage License Agreement, players are encouraged to consider their fellow gamers who may start at the official launch or prefer to progress at their own pace, and to avoid sharing spoiler-related content.
      While you wait for early access to begin, you can read our related guides to learn more about Dawntrail and the changes that Final Fantasy XIV's next expansion will bring. Furthermore, there is still time to pre-order Dawntrail, if you have not yet done so! Simply click on the image below.
