FINAL FANTASY XIV is not to be missed at gamescom 2017 – Europe’s biggest computer and video game show! Join us for exciting battles and stage shows in Cologne, Germany from August 22 to 26! There will be plenty of action in our two amazing booths, where you can play and earn rewards like our famous “I BEAT” t-shirts, and much more!
Visit us in Hall 9!
FFXIV will be playable at two booths this year! Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced adventurer, you’ll have many chances to grab some of the great prizes on offer. We will also be hosting guests from the development team who might even appear on stage! Keep your eyes peeled for Producer and Director Yoshi-P, Global Community Producer Foxclon, and Main Scenario Writer Natsuko Ishikawa! And we have much more than that in store for you as well!
Battle Challenge – Susano & Lakshmi – Hall 9, Booth C040
The two newest primals Susano and Lakshmi will be paying us a visit at gamescom! The primals will alternate each day, so drop by our Battle Challenge booth and face them to get your “I BEAT” t-shirt should you manage to defeat them! Feel free to bring your friends along even if they’re brand-new to FFXIV, as we’ve recruited Community Ambassadors to help guide you through these challenges!
Make sure you plan ahead in order to be able to add both shirts to your collection!
