FFXIV News - Dev Blog: Explore the Lore

From the Dev Blog.

Greetings, Warriors of Light & Lore,

Luxpheras here, beyond excited to talk about the Encyclopædia Eorzea: The World of FINAL FANTASY XIV - Volume II... and share some previews!

It's been two years since our first official lore book was released, and the second iteration contains a whopping 304 pages of newly compiled information. Written by Banri Oda, Michael-Christopher Koji Fox and Natsuko Ishikawa, the Encyclopædia Eorzea Volume II will be released on November 24th, 2018.


Without further ado, let's dive into some of the pages.

How about that for a preview? There's so much information contained on eleven pages alone, can you imagine what more can be gleaned from the remaining 293?!

As if that wasn't exciting enough, the Encyclopædia Eorzea Volume II will come with a bonus item code for an in-game item as well: Matoya's Hat!


You'll look absolutely scholarly. "The wider the brim, the broader your horizons!" - Matoya (Probably).

This incredible tome is dedicated to those for whom the pursuit of knowledge is a never-ending journey. Pre-order your copy today on the Square Enix Store!


Until next time,
