This September Final Fantasy XIV is celebrating its fourth birthday and it’s planning on doing this in style with a series of in-game events, Mega Mog sales and to truly mark this momentous occasion the FFXIV development team will be doing a 14-hour livestream, today (2nd September). This will include dev questions, talk sessions, special quests and in-game challenges being tackled by the team.

“This past year has been full of memorable moments,” said Naoki Yoshida ahead of the stream. “From Fan Festivals in Las Vegas, Tokyo, and Frankfurt, right through to the launch of Stormblood, we have been honored by the continued support of our players and are overjoyed to share this occasion with them. I wanted to thank our entire community, which has now reached 10 million Warriors of Light, for supporting us this far—here’s to even more exciting things to come!”
