Begginer or not, Final Fantasy XIV’s new Starter Guide Series is definitely one to watch. Launched on August 8, 2022, the animated guide series showcases how to get started in FFXIV. For a game over a decade old, with its oldest available content around nine years old, it’s useful to have a guide for beginners.
The series, which follows a narrative structure, introduces Mayra, a Viera Scholar and representation of a veteran player, along with Kaz, a newbie to the game. During the series, which currently has two episodes, Kaz will start his journey in FFXIV as Mayra guides him.
Overall, this is just a cute and fun new way to introduce friends and new players to game of Final Fantasy XIV. One of the biggest hurdles to starting MMO is both fear of missing out (FOMO) and the daunting task of starting, the latter of which Square Enix attempts to mitigate with this effort.
There's also content for existing players as well with this new release, including a sweepstakes that Final Fantasy XIV is running to celebrate the release. In this sweepstakes, players can win a brand-new Endwalker Collector’s Box, plus FFXIV Complete Edition.
This is the collector’s box that comes with dozens of unique artworks, a unique Warrior of Light statuette, a Loporrit keyring, and much more. These editions have been hard to get since release, so fans now get another chance to grab them. To enter, head to Final Fantasy XIV’s official Twitter account and double check the terms and conditions to make sure you qualify for the prize.
