The Final Fantasy 14 Housing Lottery Is Finally Fixed

Final Fantasy XIV’s housing lottery is finally fixed after one month of being broken.  On April 16, an FFXIV maintenance update indicated that the latest lottery cycle for housing in-game was broken, so when checking the placard where winners were to be shown, the placard said there were no winners. This meant nobody could obtain a house. Polygon reports the issue has been fixed as of yesterday, and now, winning lottery numbers will be displayed correctly, and land purchases may be finalized accordingly.  “As I mentioned in our previous update, we will be conducting maintenance to restore lottery results data on Monday, May 16,” FFXIV producer and director Naoki Yoshida writes in a new update. “This maintenance will fix identified errors and properly relay lottery results for affected plots to the appropriate servers.” As a result of this maintenance fix:  Winning lottery numbers will be displayed correctly, and land purchases may be finalized accordingly. Temporary suspensions imposed on plot purchases and relocations will be lifted.  Yoshida says that if you have a winning lottery number, you should finalize your land purchase by Thursday, May 26, as the next lottery cycle will begin that day, at which point, you will lose the ability to claim land you won during the current lottery. The next one will start on May 26 and have a typical five-day entry period and a four-day results period.  If you’re a winning participant who has already received a gil refund due to the recent lottery break, you will still be able to finalize a purchase on a won plot of land. Even if you received a refund and have since found out you won the lottery, you’ll still be treated as a winning lottery player.  “In Patch 6.2, we plan to implement an NPC by which you may voluntarily return the deposit you were accidentally refunded,” Yoshida writes. “As these housing lottery issues have been significant and caused great stress and frustration in many players, we have no intention of performing a data rollback to forcibly rescind any refunded gil. We will make an announcement regarding the voluntary return of housing deposits once the NPC in question is ready to be implemented.  “In closing, I would like to thank you all once again for your patience and understanding this past month, and extend my deepest apologies for the trouble and inconvenience these issues have caused. We will do everything in our power to safely restore your data, fix any remaining issues, and bring you all a fair and functional housing lottery system. Thank you for your continued support.”  For more FFXIV, read our exclusive interview feature with Yoshi-P, and then read Game Informer’s Final Fantasy XIV Endwalker review.

    New Cyberpunk 2077 footage takes you on a tour of Night City

    Coming from the latest episode of Night City Wire, has released two new featurettes for their highly-anticipated RPG video game Cyberpunk 2077, with the first one providing us a new look at the game’s world as well as never-before-seen locations in Night City. As for the second video, it serves as an introduction to the gangs that rule the city which consists of Maelstrom, Valentinos, 6th Street, Voodoo Boys, Animals, Tyger Claws, Moxes, Wraiths, and the Aldecaldos.

    Cyberpunk 2077 is the latest game to announce its release date delay during the global health crisis, with the most notable being Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us Part II, with both developers citing “logistical issues” and a desire to finish polishing and smoothing out the bugs as the reasons why. Given most developers are still working from home around the globe, this is an understandable reason as many people’s “home offices” don’t necessarily have the same level of technology or face-to-face communication as an office would.

    A co-production between Netflix, CD Projekt Red and Japan-based animation company, Studio Trigger, Cyberpunk: Edgerunners will be a standalone story about a street kid trying to survive in a technology and body modification-obsessed city of the future. Having everything to lose, he chooses to stay alive by becoming an edgerunner — a mercenary outlaw also known as a cyberpunk. The 10-episode series set in the same universe as the upcoming game is slated to hit Netflix on 2022!

    Besides Cyberpunk 2077, CD Projekt Red is also behind The Witcher video game franchise, including The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, which has grown in popularity since the release of Netflix’s The Witcher series starring Henry Cavill and based on the books by Andrzej Sapkowski.

    is set in the fictional world of Night City, California in the year 2077. The world is broken while MegaCorps manage every aspect of life from the top floors of their sky-scraping fortresses. The streets are run by drug-pushing gangs, tech hustlers, and illegal braindance slingers. The in-between is where decadence, sex, and pop culture mix with violent crime, extreme poverty, and the unattainable promise of the American Dream.

    The open-world RPG, featuring the one and only , will include  sometime after the game’s launch for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on September 17. You can ! The game’s Collector’s Edition is also available for pre-order, which includes a 25 cm / 10-inch statue depicting the game’s protagonist — V — in action, a steelbook case, a hardcover art book, and more. The Collector’s Edition comes in an impressive box made to look like one of the megabuildings towering over Night City.
