Hey everyone, welcome to another edition of the daily gaming news. Here I'll be discussing all the latest goings-on in the gaming industry, from new releases to game announcements and everything in between. So without further ado, let's get started!
FFXIV Server Expansion Announcements
Hello guys, welcome to the Gaming News for 14 Jan 2022. Naoki Yoshida, who is a Producer and Director behind Final Fantasy XIV, has released a huge announcement talking about the expansion of basically every Data Center, but also the opening of the Oceanic Data Center.
FFXIV Oceanic Data Center
He says "The Oceanic Data Center we've been planning for some time will be opening approximately two weeks earlier than scheduled. This may be a little sudden, but we'll be bringing it online on Tuesday, January 25, 2022. Additionally, taking into account the current number of players in Oceania, the original plan was to initially add three worlds and later introduce two more. In light of the recent influx of players, however, we've decided to add five new worlds from the start. With this, there should be enough room for everyone in Oceania to transfer over. Those in Oceania who have struggled with network latency issues should also have a better play experience. This will be explained in detail separately, but these being new worlds, will be offering world incentives to transfer to them, such as waiving the transfer fee. We hope you take advantage of these bonuses." People in the Oceanic Region have been waiting years for this to happen. It's good that it finally is. Also as well, because of the recent influx of new players, especially with the launch of Endwalker, they have got to react.
FFXIV Resuming Digital Sales
They suspended digital sales of the game a few weeks ago, but now that's going to be resuming also on the 25th. They're hoping on the 25th they can open new servers, expand the data centers and then resume sales, and overall people will get a better experience playing Endwalker and get less server queues. Let me know in the comments, are you planning to transfer server from your current server to a new one? And some people already on Twitter are saying something like they're going to transfer to the newest and emptiest server possible just so that they have a chance to buy a house in the game. We will see how that goes. Hopefully, it goes well and good luck to everyone who is going to be moving. Because this was such a big announcement, that's it for the Gaming News for today. Thank you so much as always to all the new followers and I will see you tomorrow. Thanks guys. Bye bye.
