We’re proud to announce that FFXIV: A Realm Reborn will be at E3 2013 in Los Angeles on June 11-13! While things are a bit hectic as our E3 preparations are in full swing alongside our Beta Phase 3 planning, the development and operations teams have been working hard to prepare exciting content for E3 attendees. If you’re able to attend, you’ll definitely want to stop by the FFXIV: A Realm Reborn area at the Square Enix booth! Just what will the attendees be playing at the show? While we don’t want to ruin the surprise, we can say we’re planning to let them try out some exciting battle content!
Since E3 is an industry-only event, many people won’t be able to participate — but don’t worry! We’re also prepping a lot of new videos (including an awesome new trailer!), assets and even some… hm, how should we say… “live” streamed entertainment? We’ll have lots of juicy announcements for those of you watching at home, so be sure to mark your calendars!
