LONDON (24th June, 2021) – SQUARE ENIX® is today launching a new programme with interactive livestreaming service, Twitch, to distribute a number of FINAL FANTASY® XIV Online in-game items.
 
From today until 24th August, FINAL FANTASY XIV Online players can get their hands on both the Heavenscracker in-game item and the Fat Black Chocobo in-game mount by making use of Twitch’s gift subscription service when select streamers are broadcasting their adventures in Eorzea.
 

The Fat Black Chocobo In-Game Mount

 
Viewers that gift one subscription in participating channels will receive 100 of the in-game Deluxe Heavenscracker items, while gifting four total subscriptions will grant them the Fat Black Chocobo Whistle, used to summon the in-game mount of the same name. Gifted subscriptions can be distributed in one channel or multiple channels, and the items can be received only once per Twitch account.
 
Participating streamers must be broadcasting FINAL FANTASY XIV Online at the time the gifted subscription is given. If the gifted subscription is given outside of a FINAL FANTASY XIV Online broadcast, it will not count towards the program.
 
Further details on the programme along with the full list of participating streamers can be found here: https://sqex.to/r6qAf
