Video games have us hoping that someone, one day, will leave us a fortune, a run-down farm, or – ever since yesterday's Final Fantasy 14 Letter From the Producer livestream – our very own island where we can set up a farm.
The game's next patch will introduce a new game mode called Island Sanctuary, which will be a solo mode where you can build a farm, gather resources, raise animals, and sell produce to earn some money. Basically, it's Stardew Fantasy. The game mode will come as a part of Patch 6.2, a.k.a. Buried Memory, which will be released in late August.
It appears that Yoshi-P and the gang have been keeping an eye on the growing popularity of farming and life simulators, and decided to introduce one into the MMO. Besides, one always needs a calm, secluded place to retreat to when the buzz of an MMO gets a bit overwhelming. We don't have too many details on the mode as of yet, the dev team will probably give us a deeper look at it closer to launch. This is just one more addition to the plethora of activities you can perform or take part in thanks to the dedication of the team.
Also part of the Buried Memory update, is something that's not very glamourous, but boasts a lot of Glamour. Players will be happy to learn that the update will increase Glamour slots to 800. The number of slots has doubled from the previous number of slots, 400. This means that players can glamour or make a piece of equipment look like another while retaining its stats 800 times. Given this increase, players will also have to mine Glamour Prisms if they want to fully harvest the potential of those 800 slots.
Only a few days ago, Final Fantasy 14 servers in the North America region were affected by a suspected DDoS attack. This resulted in players facing long login queues as the servers had difficulty in connecting. Square Enix informed players that it was investigating the issue, but in the meantime there was nothing that could be done about the long wait time.
