Greetings everyone,
Bayohne here with some exciting news!

The Chinese version of FFXIV has officially launched!

Operations are being handled by the Chinese game company Shanda Games on servers that are separate from Japan, North America, and Europe.

Shanda Games held a launch event on Wednesday, August 20, and Project Manager M was lucky enough to attend. I was so jealous... they must have lost my invitation!

The event took place at the Shanghai Symphony Hall.

There were some guests from Japan in attendance such as...

Yosuke Matsuda, President of Square Enix

Greetings, everyone!

Today we're extremely proud to be celebrating the one year anniversary of FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn!

Greetings,
Bayohne here to share a brief recap of some of the fun that went on during the 14-hour live stream last week!

During all the excitement, we were able to grab a few photos to share.

Opening Ceremonies
A rare glimpse at the core members of the dev. team assembled together!

The 14-hour Atma Challenge!
Assistant Director Takai tried to get all 12 Atma during the entire show... he managed to get 11 before the end!

The Echo Challenge
The Battle Team lent their strength to fifteen different players over the course of the stream, effectively becoming their Echo buff and assisted them in clearing content!...

Viele Grüße von der Gamescom!
Bayohne here and...oh, sorry. That means "Many greetings from gamescom!" in German!

Today we're going to take another look at what's going on at the (huge) show floor in Cologne, Germany.



We actually have two different areas for FFXIV this year because one wasn't enough to contain us. Here's a look at our hosts Becci and Mori at the special PvP area in the ESL Challenge Arena!

I don't want to make you nervous black mages, but Yoshi-P is watching......
