FFXIV News - Dev Blog: Delivering the Festival Straight to the Fans

Today, Square Enix posted a new FFXIV: Heavensward article on the dev blog. Read below for all the information, taken from the Lodestone.


Greetings, everyone!

We are nearly a week away from kicking off our second Fan Festival, and the teams are flying at Mach speeds to put the finishing touches on all the fun and exciting activities we have planned. Fan Festival will be taking place globally in three different cities around the world and Las Vegas is the first stop for the tour bus followed by Tokyo, Japan and then Frankfurt, Germany!

For those of you who are not able to make it to any of these events, rest assured that we've got you covered so you can still take part in the fun! Each event will have their own unique live stream experience, and I'd like to use this opportunity to answer some of the more frequently asked questions we have been seeing around the internets.

Is there a free version of the stream to watch?
No, the only way to enjoy the Fan Festival live stream will be to purchase it.

Where can I purchase the stream?
The stream for Fan Festival 2016 in Las Vegas can be purchased from the official live stream site.

When does the stream start and end?
We'll be hosting the stream from the following times:
-Friday, October 14 from 10:30 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. PDT
-Saturday, October 15 from 10:30 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. PDT

What can I see during the stream?
Even though you are watching from the comfort of your own home, we will be doing our best to bring the total experience of Fan Festival straight to you. That means we'll be streaming all of the panels, both the piano concert and the Primals concert, we'll be taking a look at some special gameplay, and we will also be roaming around the venue showing off the various activities we have available.

Can I purchase this if I don't live in the US?
Of course! Whether you live across the Atlantic or across the Pacific you will be able to purchase each region's stream, enjoy the show, and receive the in-game items available with each event.

What do I need in order to buy the stream?
If you have a Facebook, Google, or Cleeng account, then you're all set. In the event that you don't, you can easily make any one of the three.

I heard there are bonuses? There are bonuses, right?
Yes! Each stream will include two different bonus in-game items.

First, you will receive the "Dream of the Fayth" item, which when given to a special NPC will allow you to select either the Abes Attire (left) or the High Summoner's Attire (right). (*Please note that the Abes Attire is male-specific and the High Summoner's Attire is female-specific.)

The second depends on the region's stream that your purchase. Each region will feature their own exclusive minion.

-Fan Festival in Las Vegas
Minion: Rikku

-Fan Festival in Tokyo
Minion: Lulu

-Fan Festival in Frankfurt
Minion: Yuna

The attire will become available to obtain at the conclusion of Fan Festival 2016 in Frankfurt; however, each minion will be available immediately after each event.

Can I get all the minions?
Yes, definitely. If you purchase the stream for each region you will be able to receive all three of the above minions. The in-game item codes for each stream are not region-locked.

If I pick the Abes Attire and then Fantasia from a male character to a female character, will I be able to exchange it for the High Summoner's Attire?
No, this will not be possible.

I want both outfits! How can I do this?
Each region's stream will include a "Dream of the Fayth" item, and purchasing streams for multiple regions will allow you to pick another outfit.

For more details on the full purchasing process or how to redeem in-game item codes included with the stream, please visit the following pages:

Fan Festival 2016 will have some amazing announcements on the future of FFXIV and tons of other information that you won't want to miss. The fun is just a week away and the countdown has begun. You can set your watch and warrant on it!

See you all during the broadcast!
