How do I participate in the FINAL FANTASY XIV x FINAL FANTASY XV Collaboration Event?

If you meet those requirements, simply find Kipih Jakkya in Ul’dah on the Steps of Nald. She’s investigating some juicy rumors for her latest article and… we think that’s enough to get you started.

And finally, if you haven’t played FINAL FANTASY XIV Online at all… well, why not? There’s a free trial version available - it lets you play up to level 60, and now even features the acclaimed first expansion Heavensward, so you’ll be able to see if the game’s for you without spending a single gil.
