Square Enix will host player-focused festivals for massively multiplayer online role-playing game Final Fantasy 14: A Realm Reborn around this globe this fall, the company announced today.
The North American Fan Festival is currently slated to be held this Oct. in Las Vegas. Similar events will also be hosted in London and Tokyo throughout Oct. and Nov. The festivals will include staged events, appearances by special guests and other activities. More details on event specifics will be revealed in June.
Earlier this month, Square Enix announced the total number of registered users for A Realm Reborn — the reboot of 2010 MMO Final Fantasy 14 — had exceeded 2 million worldwide. The game was released for PlayStation 3 and Windows PC last fall, with a PlayStation 4 version launching earlier this month. Players using the PS3 version can upgrade for free to the PS4 version — here's how to do it.
During GDC 2014 last month, director and producer Naoki Yoshida explained how Square Enix's stubbornness in adhering to old methods and policies caused the original Final Fantasy 14 to fail, and how only by taking a new approach and listening to players was A Realm Reborn's success made possible.
