FFXIV News - Dev Blog: Gamescom Insanity: Day Two!

Today sees another dev blog update for FFXIV: Heavensward. We have quoted the new info below.


Hey everyone! This is Kahuna!

It's that time of year again, gamescom is here in full force. Not only is this poised to be one of the biggest games conventions ever, with 345,000 visitors in 5 mad, crazy days, but it's also the biggest presence we've ever had on any show floor. Two massive booths, allowing you to test yourself against a smorgasbord of encounters, show fights, the Feast - and of course Yoshi-P himself would never let the opportunity pass to join players in their quest for glory!

We are bracing for the storm with a small army - Yoshi-P's army - consisting of YOU, the players. Our ambassadors, recruited from the community itself, are doing a great job at introducing beginners to the game and answering questions from veterans. Just look at them!

But that's not all! Today, something very special happened. We were delighted to be able to help Michel in proposing to his girlfriend live on our stage! I'd be lying if I said that we didn't all get a bit teary-eyed as she said 'yes'!

Just look at them!

Also, here's a look at our fantastic booths.

We still have 3 days ahead of us and we can't wait! Whether you see someone from our local European teams, our ambassadors, or even Yoshi-P himself - we look forward to seeing you victorious!

While you probably won't be able to see me, you'll definitely be able to hear me as I'll be moderating the Battle Challenge booth all week!

Yours truly,
