Many players showed interest in it, and it has now been formally verified. Final Fantasy 16 will return for a collaboration before the game’s downloadable content is released.
Final Fantasy 16 received both favorable and negative comments from its fans upon its debut on June 22. The game’s increased emphasis on action and Game of Thrones-inspired themes provoked a schism in the community.
Despite this, the environment of Valisthea and its characters struck a chord with certain players, who eagerly awaited the announcement of downloadable material to enhance their experience.
In response to these requests, Square Enix has begun work on various expansions. While FF16 producer Naoki Yoshida has begged fans to be patient, he has lately delivered another highly anticipated piece of news.
The much-anticipated Final Fantasy 16 collaboration
Naoki Yoshida has a dual role, serving as both the producer of FF16, where he diligently attends to the creation of additional content based on player feedback, and as the director of Final Fantasy 14 and its numerous expansions.
The fervent desires of many MMORPG enthusiasts for a collaboration between these two games under his supervision were met with a response imbued with levity, as he humorously expressed the need to introspect. Following what we can only imagine were spirited deliberations, this collaboration has come to fruition. During the recent FanFest event, Square Enix officially announced a collaboration between Final Fantasy 14 and FF16.
In this unique quest, MMORPG players will have the opportunity to confront Ifrit alongside Clive, with the objective of retrieving the hero’s armor and, most notably, acquiring a mount resembling the esteemed Talgor. This new mission will be made available to all players at a later, yet to be determined, date and will be provided free of charge.
Updates from the Xbox version and FF14 Dawntrail
Square Enix has recently released additional information regarding the highly anticipated open beta of Final Fantasy 14 on Xbox. Interested individuals will have the opportunity to experience it between the months of January and February in the year 2024. An exact date will be announced at a later time.
This particular version of the game will enable players to enjoy the MMORPG in stunning 4K resolution on the Xbox Series X, while both console models will benefit from significantly reduced loading times, enhancing the overall gameplay experience in the captivating realm of Eorzea.
Dedicated fans of the franchise were also treated to further insights into the upcoming expansion, Final Fantasy 14 Dawntrail, set to be released in the following summer.
This expansion will introduce a new job called the viper prowler, a formidable dual-wielding fighter whose combat style evokes memories of a beloved character named Djidane within the gaming community.
The adventure will unfold on the vast continent of Tural, offering adventurers the opportunity to explore its bustling cities, and expansive landscapes, and even delve into the “Echoes of Vana’diel,” providing a glimpse into the world of Final Fantasy 11.
