Final Fantasy XIV The Rising 2022 event will mark the ninth anniversary of FFXIV A Realm Reborn’s launch on August 27, 2013, after the game was shut down and completely reworked following the overwhelmingly negative reception of its original release in 2010. The relaunch of Final Fantasy XIV was a massive success, with its revamped mechanics and several expansions that followed and propelled the Square Enix Final Fantasy game to massive critical and commercial popularity, which had led to it being called one of the best MMOs and one of the best multiplayer games out there.
If you’re a player who hasn’t yet completed the story of Shadowbringers, which is an expansion that is often cited as the high point of Final Fantasy XIV to date and is said by many as one of the best stories in RPGs, then you should know that Emet-Selch’s reputation as one of the most impressive characters in the franchise is well earned. Participating in the latest FFXIV event will net you his miniature replica, which follows you around in the world of Eorzea, complete with his iconic two-tone hair.
A recent report revealed that despite a 15.5% decline in Square Enix’s net sales from last year, its MMO revenue increased thanks to the continued growth of Final Fantasy XIV’s active subscribers. That news certainly seems like a reason to celebrate, and if you want to participate in the celebration, you will have two weeks from August 27th to September 12th to participate and get the Clockwork Solus minions.
