Final Fantasy 14 housing prices lowering over the next few months

Square Enix will lower housing prices in its massively multiplayer online title, Final Fantasy 14: A Realm Reborn, due to a "prodigious amount of gil in circulation" in the game's legacy worlds, producer Naoki Yoshida announced.

According to Yoshida, Square Enix has always wanted to "ensure that plots would be evenly distributed, avoiding a situation in which the wealthiest players could easily buy up all available plots of land." However, after a survey of the game's economy across multiple servers, the team found that the wealthiest players had "considerably higher" amounts of in-game money than imagined.

"In each legacy world, there are more than 10 players in possession of over one hundred million gil," Yoshida wrote. "Even in non-legacy worlds, there are a significant number of players with several million gil."

To make housing less prohibitive to new or returning players, Square Enix will begin lowering costs in January. Prices will be adjusted every two weeks, resulting in final prices by the third month.

The list of affected worlds is available on Final Fantasy 14's website.
