LOS ANGELES (Oct. 14, 2013) – Square Enix, Inc., the publisher of SQUARE ENIX® interactive entertainment products in the Americas, today announces details of the unique Halloween-like event, “All Saints’ Wake” and more in FINAL FANTASY® XIV: A Realm Reborn™ .

From this Friday, October 18 th through Friday, November 1 st, enjoy All Saints’ Wake as the streets of Eorzea are decked with ceremonial lanterns and fanciful costumes can be enjoyed by all. A traveling circus troupe has made its way to the city-states, appearing overnight, as if by magic. Speak to these Shifty Thespians for a special Quest, but never forget that All Saints’ Wake is a time for tricks as well as treats.

We’re also pleased to announce that the free World Transfer Service begins tomorrow until Monday, October 21 st. Like the name implies, this service allows you to move your character to the World of your choice*. So if your friends are playing in a different World, this week is the perfect opportunity to arrange playing in the same World. For more information on World Transfer, please visit The Lodestone to read the guidelines and then proceed to the FINAL FANTASY XIV: Mog Station.

At Tokyo Game Show last month, the latest Letter from the Producer LIVE was held as a live event for attendees. Lots of exciting new information was revealed about the next major content update that arrives later this year, including videos and further detail on The Wolves’ Den that will serve as the center for Player vs Player (PvP) battles in Eorzea, and a video that showcased some of the many customizable options that will be available with the addition of player Housing.

A new video is available on YouTube that allows players to take a closer look at Wolves’ Den, the coliseum home of PvP battles, shown at New York Comic Con this year and coming later this year with Patch 2.1. The video is also available on the press site.

Alongside The Wolves’ Den PvP Battles and Housing, there’s a variety of other features and content being added to the game later this year, including the new Primal Battle: Good King Moggle Mog XII, Extreme Mode Primal Battles, new Dungeons including Pharos Sirius, Treasure Hunting, Hard Mode Boss Battles, Beastmen Daily Quests and The Crystal Tower that fans of FINAL FANTASY III will be eager to visit. More details about the content update including its title will be announced at a later time.

November sees the collaboration with LIGHTNING RETURNS™: FINAL FANTASY XIII with Lightning appearing in one of the game’s Full Active Time Events (FATE), with special Lightning and FINAL FANTASY XIII-themed gear and weapons available for successful players. This special FATE is scheduled to go live on Thursday, November 14 th. Keep an eye on further collaborations in the future, as FINAL FANTASY XIV will be celebrating the 11 th anniversary of FINAL FANTASY XI and the first anniversary of DRAGON QUEST X in Japan.

Last but certainly not least, Producer and Director Naoki Yoshida revealed the incredible news at Tokyo Game Show that FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn has quickly grown to over a million players in the first month since launch, and it's continuously growing.
