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.

    Nobody Saves the World coming to PS5 & PS4, along with local co-op

    Surprise! Nobody Saves the World’s release is days away, and everyone at Drinkbox is thrilled for you to play our wild, wacky take on action-RPGs. If you’re not familiar with the game then sit back, close your eyes, and let me paint you a picture… (…you may need someone to read this to you if you’re actually closing your eyes).

    The Calamity spreads its corruption across the land, and the world turns to the legendary wizard Nostramagus to save them… only he’s nowhere to be found. So you, the hollow-eyed Nobody, steal his magic wand and set out to defeat the Calamity yourself.

    {“@context”:””,”@type”:”VideoObject”,”name”:”Nobody Saves the World – Announcement Trailer | PS5, PS4″,”description”:”From the developers of Guacamelee! comes Nobody Saves the World, a new take on Action RPGs, in which you play as a featureless nobody that can transform into many different Forms, each with their own unique gameplay mechanics.nnComplete quests to discover and swap between 15+ varied and distinct Forms. Mix and match abilities in unexpected ways to unlock and complete even MORE challenging quests. Explore a vast overworld – on your own or with a friend – while clearing shape-shifting dungeons in an effort to stop The Calamity and SAVE THE WORLD!”,”uploadDate”:”2022-04-04T14:00:31Z”,”thumbnailUrl”:[“”,””,””,””,””],”duration”:”PT1M11S”,”embedUrl”:””}

    Nobody Saves the World coming to PS5 & PS4, along with local co-op

    What follows is a silly, sprawling action-RPG full of weird characters, bizarre dungeons, and wild quests. With the power of the wand, you’ll unlock and swap between over 15 forms — everything from a Guard or Ranger, to a Horse, Bodybuilder or Dragon. You’ll journey through a crashed UFO one moment, and an overgrown rotten pumpkin the next. There’s always a new form, quest, or dungeon to discover right around the corner.

    Combine powers to create the ultimate form

    As your forms become stronger, they gain ever more abilities, all of which can be mixed-and-matched with other forms. Want to create a Horse that shoots arrows like a Ranger? How about a Bodybuilder that breathes Dragon fire? You can do all that and more — and you’ll need to invent increasingly powerful and clever combos to overcome the Calamity threat.

    Nobodies save the world

    You don’t have to do it alone, either. You and a friend can save the world together, either online or right next to each other in the brand-new local co-op. Two players at once literally doubles your form-swapping, ability-combining potential, unleashing a whole new level of creativity and overpowered combos.

    We hope you have a blast with Nobody Saves the World when it launches on PS4 and PS5 on April 14.
