“Bringer of Shadow, Bringer of Light” is told from Thancred Waters’ perspective as he recounts the legacy of Ran’jit and Minfilia Warde. He just fought off an assassin – one of the members of the Reapers – in it..

There are two side stories still to be released on the website. Their debut dates are as follows:

  • Side Story 3: September 8, 2023
  • Side Story 4: September 15, 2023

Many other events and collaborations have commenced to commemorate the 10th anniversary. When the Japanese chip brand Koikeya released Final Fantasy XIV potato chips, they sold out in just a day. Also, a 10th anniversary memorial book will be released this winter.

Final Fantasy XIV is available on the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC. It will also come to Xbox Series X in Spring 2024.
