Square Enix Just Re-uploaded the FFXIV 1.0 Cinematic and We Don't Know Why

30 Nov 2021

Last night, Square Enix re-uploaded the FFXIV 1.0 cinematic to its Final Fantasy XIV YouTube channel.

But why?

Could it be that with Endwalker early access starting later this week, the publisher wishes to remind people of what came before for nostalgia’s sake as we get ready to wrap up the Hydaelyn and Zodiark saga? Could it be to refresh player’s memories of previous events that will finally receive answers in the story of the upcoming expansion?

Many fans on social media are putting their tinfoil hats on and coming up with all sorts of theories as to why this video has resurfaced.

Whatever the case may be, the video has certainly helped to further raise the hype levels of long-time Final Fantasy XIV players that are eagerly awaiting the early access period for Endwalker later this week.
