Square Enix decided to reveal the number of players that play their critically-acclaimed online title, Final Fantasy XIV.
Final Fantasy XIV released around three years ago, and during that period, it was able to attract a little over six million cumulative players, excluding free trial periods offered by the game.
FINAL FANTASY® XIV has now drawn in over six million cumulative players globally–excluding free trial—in under three years. The accumulated accounts reflect the growing community of players who enjoy the consistent schedule of content updates.
The studio also released patch 3.35 to celebrate the occasion and add even more content to an already rich game. The patch introduces the “Deep Dungeon: The Palace of the Dead,” which is a dungeon that will challenge players with “an array of enemies, avoid traps and tackle bosses to gain valuable experience.”
Patch 3.35 introduces the Deep Dungeon: The Palace of the Dead, where newcomers and veterans can band together for an unprecedented adventure in FINAL FANTASY® XIV. With parties of up to four, the Palace of the Dead is the first of many planned content updates where players can battle through an array of enemies, avoid traps and tackle bosses to gain valuable experience. The dungeon features randomly generated maps, several dozen floors, and starts every participant at Level 1 with a unique new progression system. Diving deep into the dungeon will see players focusing on strengthening their gear throughout their journey, as they work to unravel the mystery of the Palace of the Dead.
Final Fantasy XV releases on September 30 for PS4 and Xbox One.
