FINAL FANTASY XIV NOW EXCEEDS 5 MILLION REGISTERED USERS WORLDWIDE

LOS ANGELES (Aug. 21, 2015) – In just under two years, Square Enix Inc., today announced that the community of FINAL FANTASY® XIV now exceeds 5 million registered accounts globally across North America, Japan, Europe, and China—not including those from free trial.

Spurred on by a vibrant community of players, as well as a consistent schedule of content updates, FINAL FANTASY XIV continues to deliver on the promise of bringing the hallmarks of the FINAL FANTASY experience to an online world. Players can enjoy the option of joining the adventure together on multiple platforms from the PC to the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, the PlayStation®Vita handheld entertainment system (with Remote Play), and the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system.

With the recent release of their first major expansion, Heavensward™, FINAL FANTASY XIV features a new story which plunges adventurers into the heart of the Dragonsong War, the bloody thousand-year conflict between the knights of Ishgard and the dragons of Dravania. Adventurers can enjoy an increased level cap from 50 to 60 for all disciplines, a new playable race, new dungeons and raids, new primal battles, and new mounts that allow players to take to the skies—flying black chocobos, single-rider airships, dragons and more.
