Final Fantasy XIII Lightning will be paying a special visit to Final Fantasy XIV in a multiday event complete with special quests.
Square Enix has launched a Final Fantasy cross-over event that will see Lightning, the protagonist of the upcoming Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, wandering the realm of Eorzea in Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. "Taverns across Eorzea are abuzz with talk of a mysterious warrioress slaying creatures then vanishing as quickly as she appears," said the company in an announcement.
FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn is a massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) that invites you to explore the realm of Eorzea with friends from around the world.
FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn lets you party up and adventure with a multitude of players from across the globe. Forge friendships, mount chocobos, and board airships as you and your companions create your own unique stories in Eorzea. All the classic elements from the series that you have come to know and love are waiting!
Set out alone or enlist the aid of friends as you undertake epic quests, battle familiar FINAL FANTASY monsters, and acquire unique abilities and equipment. Embark on the adventure of a lifetime to help reforge the fate of Eorzea!
To celebrate Lightning's visit to Eorzea, Square Enix will also be launching a special adventure that will be broken into parts running until November 20th. Chapter 1: For the Winsome is currently already active. Chapter 2, in turn, will initiate on November 16th with Chapter 3 and 4 starting up at two day intervals following. Each of the four quests will come with a level and quest pre-requisite that players will need to meet before they can participate.
Taking part in the event will earn players rewards, many of which are based off of Final Fantasy XIII and Lightning herself. These will include a special gunblade weapon as well as clothing that will allow players to adopt Lightning's look or the look of an equivalent male character. Just in case you miss out on this event in November, Square Enix has plans to repeat it again in February. For more details head over to the official Final Fantasy XIV website.
