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.

    Uncharted Trailer Officially Released, Showcases Scene Ripped From Third Game

    UPDATE: The official Uncharted trailer has been released. Check it out below.

    The teaser trailer for Sony’s upcoming Uncharted film has leaked online, giving fans a very blurry, but new look at the highly anticipated action film before its theatrical release on February 18, 2022.

    In a brief look at footage from the film, which seems to have been filmed inside of a theater showing off the trailer, we see Nathan Drake (Tom Holland) waking up in the air, attached to a falling line of cargo that’s hanging out of a plane. Unless it gets pulled, you can see the trailer below:

    This scene seems like it was taken directly from a moment in Uncharted 3, hinting at the possibility of the film using some of the original games iconic set pieces as references in the film. Alongside the brief look at the clip, Holland’s Drake is also seen getting into a scuffle with a Scottish man, where we’re also treated to some of the film’s humor.

    Thanks to the trailer leaking online, it’s likely that a full, HD version of the clip will make its way out at some point. It had been rumored for some time now that the trailer would release alongside Dune, but Sony may no choice but to release things a bit early thanks to this latest leak.

    Directed by Zombieland and Venom director Ruben Fleischer, Uncharted is expected to be a prequel to the game series and will be taking inspiration from both a sequence of Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception, in which young thief Nathan Drake first meets future partner Victor Sullivan, and the fourth installment in the game franchise, A Thief’s End.

    The film adaptation will be led by Spider-Man: No Way Home star Tom Holland as Nathan Drake, and Mark Wahlberg (Transformers films). It will also feature Academy Award-nominated actor Antonio Banderas (The Mask of ZorroPain and Glory), Grey’s Anatomy actress Sophia Ali and Chilling Adventures of Sabrina star Tati Gabrielle.

    Fleischer, who was the seventh director attached to the project, is directing Uncharted from a script written by the Men in Black: International duo Art Marcum & Matt Holloway and Rafe Judkins (The Wheel of Time), based on a story put together by the trio and previous director Dan Trachtenberg (10 Cloverfield Lane), Mark D. Walker, and John Hanley Rosenberg.
