First announced during the London Fan Festival 2023, we finally have details about the upcoming collab between the critically acclaimed MMORPG Final Fantasy XIV (FFXIV) and the equally acclaimed RPG Final Fantasy XVI (FFXVI), which is happening soon and will bring in various rewards including glamour sets, a mount, and more.

Let's begin with the event duration. The event starts on April 2, 2024, at 1:00 AM PDT, and will run until May 8, 2024, at 7:59 AM PDT. That's almost a full month for players to try and get all of the event rewards. Players can start the event by accepting the quest A Land on Fire. The quest is available from the Neophyte Adventurer, located in Ul'dah – Steps of Nald at (X: 8.8, Y:9.8). Players must at least be Level 50 in one job (excluding Disciples of the Land/Hand), and have completed the Main Scenario Quest “The Ultimate Weapon”.

This will start a quest chain that is 3 quests long, culminating in the quest The Path Infernal. Finishing this quest will award players with the following items:

Other than these event rewards, players can also buy a Clive Rosfield Triple Triad Card for 200,000 MGP, as well as a total of 10 Orchestrion Rolls, each costing 20,000 MGP. The Orchestrion Rolls are all music from FFXVI, with the full list below:

As for what the event entails, the first two quests consist of lore and conversations between the Warrior of Light and Clive Rosfield. Upon arriving in The Path Infernal, the player will have to face off against FFXVI's version of Ifrit. This is a Level 50 synced duty.

During the fight with Ifrit, players have access to two Special Duty Actions. The first is Rising Flames, which allows players to charge forward and deal damage to Ifrit. The second is Dodge, which, as the name implies, allows players to dodge fight mechanics. Successfully doing a Dodge turns the Action into Precision Strike, which has the player charging forward and dealing damage to Ifrit again.

Some of Ifrit's attacks will show a countdown, showing players the perfect time to use Dodge. However, Dodge is not limited to the attacks with countdowns. It is possible to use the Dodge Action on all of the attacks that Ifrit does. Taking advantage of these two Special Duty Actions is important, as Dodge allows players to avoid large amounts of damage.

The FFXIV And FFXVI Producers Are The Same

Collabs between FFXIV and other Final Fantasy games aren't anything new. Just recently, they held a collab with Final Fantasy 15, and previously also did one with Final Fantasy 11. However, what makes this collab interesting is the fact that the producer for FFXIV and FFXVI are the same: Naoki Yoshida. This is because both games were made by Creative Business Unit III.

In fact, Naoki Yoshida, also known as Yoshi-P among the FFXIV fanbase, acknowledges this and pokes fun at it. For example, during their recent appearance in Pax East, Yoshida was the presenter for both FFXIV and FFXVI. During the FFXVI presentation, Yoshida brought up the upcoming FFXIV collab but didn't give any details about it. According to him, FFXIV would be having a panel the following day, and the game's producer and director, Yoshi-P (yes, he was referring to himself) will be the one talking about the collab. This has been a running joke in the community, one that he has fully embraced.

That's all the information we have about the upcoming FFXVI and FFXIV collab. The critically acclaimed MMORPG FFXIV is available for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC via either the Square Enix Store or Steam. FFXVI, on the other hand, is available on PlayStation 5, with the PC release in its “last stages of optimization.”
