FFXIV: A Realm Reborn Appearing at Gamescom 2014!

8 Aug 2014

We are proud to announce FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn will once again be making an appearance at Gamescom in Cologne, Germany from August 13 to 17! We’ll be hosting a myriad of special challenges throughout the week and will have some tantalising loot for those who emerge victorious!

Battle Challenges
A huge area with a total of forty-eight FINAL FANTASY XIV: A REALM REBORN game stations will await you in hall 9, booth B21! Here, you can pit yourself against our daily Battle Challenges featuring legendary bosses from the FINAL FANTASY series: Leviathan, Gilgamesh and Ramuh! Overcome these challenges to secure yourself an exclusive t-shirt! In addition to the ”I BEAT LEVIATHAN!” t-shirt available at E3 and Japan Expo, you can also get your hands on brand new “I BEAT GILGAMESH” and “I BEAT RAMUH” t-shirts!

Be sure to swing by each day! Battle challenges will vary each day of the event!

Battle Arena
This one’s for the experts among you: In hall 9, booth A51, there will be 32 additional game stations with two especially difficult challenges awaiting the most daring adventurers! There will be amazing rewards for those skilled enough to emerge victorious!

In the PvP area, you will train in one of three teams, each consisting of 8 players, to get used to the Frontline PvP-mode and hone your battle skills. This will culminate in a decisive battle on the Carteneau Flats, and the victors will leave not only with eternal fame and glory, but also amazing rewards!

Extreme Battles
Watch the pros in action! Our extreme players, recruited from the online community, will pit themselves against Extreme Mode renditions of fearsome Primals, and show everyone how it’s done!

The truly brave among you can then try your hand against these vicious primals yourselves! Should you bring down these legendary foes in record breaking time, you can get your hands on some fantastic loot!

Do you have what it takes to best other players and become a legend in our Battle Arena? Head over to the official forums for full details on how to secure your spot and obtain VIP access.

But it’s not all in-game challenges…
For those inclined to show off a good costume, there will be a special FFXIV photo wall in the Cosplay Village in Hall 10.1!

Another must-see for every FINAL FANTASY fan will be the special THEATRHYTHM FINAL FANTASY CURTAIN CALL showdown! Naoki Yoshida, the producer and director of FINAL FANTASY XIV: A REALM REBORN and Ichiro Hazama, producer of THEARHYTHM FINAL FANTASY CURTAIN CALL, will go head-to-head in a melodic mash-up of epic proportions! Don’t miss their legendary battle on Theatrhythm’s versus mode! The loser stands to face a special punishment!

Last but certainly not least, Yoshida-san will be attending an autograph signing session on Saturday, August 16 at 18:00! Don’t let this chance slip through your fingers, meet up with Yoshi-P in person in Hall 9/B21!
