Final Fantasy XIII Twitch stream and exclusive goodies giveaway!
As I'm sure many of you are very aware of, Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy will be making its debut on Steam next Friday!
Well, to mark one week till its launch, Dan and I will be playing the first couple of hours of Final Fantasy XIII on the Square Enix Twitch channel this Friday at 6pm GMT / 10am Pacific. Drop by and join us as we chat about and relive memories from the first game in the trilogy. As with all our broadcasts, we'll of course be involving you as much as possible and will also be running some awesome giveaways on the side…
We'll be giving away some Final Fantasy XIII art prints, Play Arts KAI figurines of Lightning and Vanille, Steam keys for Final Fantasy XIII and XIII-2 as well as three Final Fantasy XIII posters signed by Producer Yoshinori Kitase and Director Motomu Toriyama.
It's really quick and easy to enter the competition - First of all, make sure you're following the Twitch Square Enix Channel. Then, once we're live on air and running a giveaway, just send the line !giveaway via the chat and you'll be in the running to win the current prize. We'll then announce the winner of each giveaway during the stream. Make sure to stick around, because if you do win something, you'll have to confirm your shipping address within 10 minutes or we may have to redraw the prize. Please also make sure that you've read the terms and conditions posted just under this blog before you enter!
Regrettably, we are only able to run this competition in the US, Canada (excluding Quebec) and the UK. We're still planning on adding more eligible countries to our giveaways and will continue to work towards this. In the meantime, please only enter the giveaway if you're from one of the regions listed above - that being said, it'd be awesome to have Final Fantasy fans from all over the world join us!
See you tomorrow (Friday) at 6:00pm GMT / 10:00am Pacific on the Square Enix Twitch channel!
