Rejoice Final Fantasy XIV mega fans! The dates and details for the next Final Fantasy XIV fan festival have been announced. A fairly regular tradition going back to the Final Fantasy XI days, Square Enix throws a big festival full of fun stuff to do and collect, and is also a great place to meet up with people you play with. Also, the fan festivals tend to be where Square Enix makes huge announcements regarding the future of the game, so make sure to tune in even if you don’t go. Without further ado, here are the details courtesy of the FFXIV Lodestone!
“We’re pleased to announce that Fan Festival, the largest live event for FINAL FANTASY XIV fans the world over, is making its glorious return starting in 2016!
