By Duncan Heaney

Prince Noctis Lucis Caelum has arrived in the world of FINAL FANTASY XIV Online… and he’s brought his car with him.

The new event, A Nocturne for Heroes, is available now and runs until May 27, 2019. You’ll team up with FINAL FANTASY XV’s leading man in an epic battle against the worst that his world has to offer.

That means you’ll face magitek infantry, magitek armour, and even the Messenger herself, Garuda. You can read more on Lodestone, or watch the trailer here:

That’s cool and all, but you know what’s cooler? Getting stuff.

What kind of in-game rewards are available?

The event features various FINAL FANTASY XV-themed goodies that FINAL FANTASY XIV Online players can earn. Keep in mind you’ll need to do various things to get all of them!

Here’s what’s available:

  • The Regalia Mount – A replica of Noctis’ amazing car is the first four-person mount in the game. Round up your friends and hit the road together!

  • Noctis’s hairstyle and outfit - Rock some royal style with this new haircut and all-black outfit.

  • Noctis Lucis Caelum Triple Triad Card - FINAL FANTASY XV Pocket Edition’s not the only way to have a Noctis in your pocket. This card can be used in Triple Triad matches across Hydaelyn.

  • Various Orchestrion Rolls - Add some great music from FINAL FANTASY XV’s amazing soundtrack to your collection.

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

You’ll need to have reached level 50 and completed the main scenario quest: The Ultimate Weapon.

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.

If you don’t meet those requirements, don’t worry. You can fast-track to level 50 with Tales of Adventure Items - find out more about them here.

Alternatively, if you preorder the upcoming FINAL FANTASY XIV: Shadowbringers expansion, you’ll get the experience-boosting aethertye earring to help you level up much faster.

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 every job up to level 35, so you’ll be able to see if the game’s for you without spending a single gil.
