Beginning today and running for 48-hours, the Hydaelyn International Community Group is celebrating the fifth anniversary of Final Fantasy XIV. The 2-day event will feature "live streamers, digital artists, cosplayers and more". In addition a trio of in-game activities will take place including a beauty contest, an epic Parkour exhibition and "opportunities to get an in-game portrait by top screenshotters in XIV".
Leader and founder of Hydaelyn International, Vari Cray has been a fan of the game for many years: “My love for the franchise started with its arrival with Final Fantasy VII for me as a Swede back in 1997. I'm in love with Final Fantasy XIV, it's community, game content & gameplay. I dedicate every single day to the game via several community projects, streaming or just playing the game, meeting with FFXIV friends in real life & attending all events that I can.”
