This year, Warriors of Light across the world will have to gather virtually to learn about Final Fantasy XIV’s next expansion. The live broadcast is scheduled for Friday, February 5 at 5:30 PM PT. Depending on your time zone, this could end up as February 6 instead. The exact start time is subject to change due to delays or equipment failure.

With the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, Square Enix canceled its in-person FanFest events across North America, Japan, and Europe. This Announcement Showcase is a stand-in for those events, with expected news about the upcoming expansion.

The showcase will be in Japanese with live interpretation to English. Watch the broadcast live when it airs, or catch an archive when it’s over on YouTube, Niconico Live, or Twitch.
