Final Fantasy XIV x Final Fantasy XV

Earlier today we passed along some fresh information about the Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers, the upcoming expansion for the popular MMORPG. Square Enix wasn't done yet though because they also announced a special collaboration between Final Fantasy XIV and Final Fantasy XV. This content will see various elements from Final Fantasy XV coming to Final Fantasy XIV starting in mid-April.

Notably, you will see Noctis and his car, the Regalia, showing up the MMO.

The collaboration will feature FINAL FANTASY XV hero Noctis Lucis Caelum entering the world of Hydaelyn with the Regalia, where he will join the Warrior of Light in battle against magitek infantry, magitek armor, and even the Messenger, Garuda hailing from Eos.

Also during the Letter from the Producer LIVE, Producer & Director Naoki Yoshida revealed what FINAL FANTASY XIV Online players can expect in the coming months as the Stormblood™ expansion reaches its conclusion. A schedule of upcoming patches and their content is below:

Patch 4.55 – February 12
  • New Rival Wings Map “Hidden Gorge” – The newest campaign in this large-scale 48-man PvP content will feature new mechanics and rules. As the two teams compete to destroy the other team’s core (base), they will also aim to control train stations within the arena to obtain valuable cargo, and best Goblin Mercenaries who roam the battlefield to win their favor and have them fight as an ally.
  • Eureka Hydratos – The fourth and final entry in the Eureka storyline will raise the elemental level cap to 60, add new logos actions and allow gear enhanced in Pyros to be further improved. Those who follow the story to its conclusion will be able to enter The Baldesion Arsenal, an ultra high-end public instanced dungeon for up to 56 players. It’s a challenge not for the faint-hearted!
