    2. Head to Redeemable Items
    3. Press Claim and receive the iconic Buster Sword!

    That’s all there is to it! You’ll be on your way to saving Valisthea with a little help from the world of Gaia. 

    About Final Fantasy XVI

    Final Fantasy XVI Update and Paid DLC Announced

    Final Fantasy XVI was developed by Creative Business Unit III, led by Director Hiroshi Takai and Producer Naoki Yoshida. CBUIII is behind the critically acclaimed MMO Final Fantasy XIV, which continues to grow each year.

    Clive Rosfield is the main protagonist of the title, voiced by Ben Starr. He is the only playable character, as the game has a high action focus, or at least more so than previous Final Fantasy titles. Combat design has been directed by Ryota Suzuki, who was a key member of the Devil May Cry 5 and Dragon’s Dogma combat design teams. 

    A free Final Fantasy XVI demo is available to play now! This demo allows players to play through two sections, the Prologue of FFXVI and the Eikonic Challenge. You’ll be able to get a taste of the game’s story, world, and combat with this demo. You can learn all about the demo by checking out the posts below.

    Final Fantasy XVI was launched on June 22, 2023, exclusively on PlayStation 5.
