Fight alongside FF13's heroine and earn special costumes.
Final Fantasy naming conventions being what they are, Square Enix press releases are just a few verbs away from being weather reports. While Final Fantasy XIII: Lightning Returns is still in the works, she's taking a break in the busy production schedule to crossover into the recently reborn world of Final Fantasy XIV Online. Players will be able to fight along with her, and even earn special costumes.
A core part of FF14 are the FATE battles. Totally not a forced acronym for "Full Active Time Events", they are public quests which randomly occur across the monster-strewn lands of Eorzea. Now, a new FATE lets players fight alongside the pink-haired heroine, as featured in the new trailer.
In addition to tasty loot and XP, players who complete the special event can also earn FF13-themed gear. Female characters will get Lightning soldier outfit, while males earn Snow's trenchcoat. Meanwhile, various FF13-themed weapons can be obtained via new side quests in many of the major cities. The new equipment applies to all races too, allowing you can act out your Lalafell Lightning /Snow fantasies.
No word yet if this is a limited promotion, of if it'll be a permanent addition to the game, so you better grab your gear while you still can!
