Final Fantasy 14: A Realm Reborn event features a wandering Lightning

Final Fantasy 14: A Realm Reborn is hosting a Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy 13 cross-over event, which sees the titular heroine wandering around Eorzea "dispatching foes with lethal efficiency, only to vanish before her identity can be ascertained."

The event will be released in chapters and the schedule is below:

Event Date and Times: From Thursday, November 14, 2013 at 8:00 (GMT) to Monday, December 9, 2013 at 14:59 (GMT)

  • Chapter 1: For the Winsome: From Thursday, November 14, 2013 at 8:00 (GMT)
  • Chapter 2: Seeking the Scoop: From Saturday, November 16, 2013 at 8:00 (GMT)
  • Chapter 3: The Knight’s Passage: From Monday, November 18, 2013 at 8:00 (GMT)
  • Chapter 4: Wonder and Lightning: From Wednesday, November 20, 2013 at 8:00 (GMT)

Event Rewards include eight new weapons and Gear tailored for both male and female adventurers. Once the event ends, the quests cannot be completed; however, it is scheduled to make a return in February 2014 for the European and PAL territories release of Lightning Returns.

As part of this cross-over collaboration, in Lightning Returns, players can complete a special quest to obtain the Miqo’te outfit for Lightning. This outfit is inspired by the Miqo’te race from A Realm Reborn, complete with the ears and tail.

In addition, you can also acquire customizable weapons and shields with designs influenced by the three main cities located in the world of Eorzea. The Miqo’te outfit not only transforms Lightning’s appearance, but also changes her victory pose and fanfare.

A Realm Reborn is out now on PC and PS3 and a free 30-day trial is included for new accounts, with monthly subscriptions starting at £7.69/€10.99.
