LOS ANGELES (June 24, 2019) As players around the world continue their in-game heroic journeys in SQUARE ENIX®’s FINAL FANTASY® XIV Online, the company behind the game is paying tribute to real-life heroes. SQUARE ENIX® joins forces with the Gary Sinise Foundation this summer to provide resources and support to America’s real-life ‘Warriors in the Darkness,’ ahead of the highly anticipated launch FINAL FANTASY® XIV: Shadowbringers™ on July 2, 2019. Beginning today through August 14, 2019, fans can visit the official Warriors in the Darkness website to donate and help raise awareness for the nation’s brave first responders and veterans.

SQUARE ENIX will match all donations made to the Gary Sinise Foundation through the Warriors in the Darkness website, dollar for dollar up to $50,000.00 USD, which will go directly toward national and local programs that honor and serve America's defenders, veterans, first responders, and their families 365 days a year.
