Square Enix says the site will be continually updated ahead of patch 6.1’s release and advises players to come back to it when they can.

Final Fantasy 14 also recently won the award for Best Ongoing Game at the BandLab NME Awards, with producer Naoki Yoshida saying, “It’s an immense pleasure to have been awarded Best Ongoing Game at this year’s NME Awards!”

“With a long history behind the NME Awards, FFXIV is the first title to be awarded in the newly established Best Ongoing Game category, and that in itself makes me feel incredibly honoured,” Yoshida added.
