Manderville Gold Saucer Detailed, 2.51 Dated

February 1st, 2015 by Tony Garsow

On tonight’s mini Letter from the Producer Live at Tokaigi Game Party Japan, Final Fantasy XIV director/producer Naoki Yoshida let new details on the Manderville Gold Saucer fly. First off, we can expect Patch 2.51 (which includes Gold Saucer) to launch on February 25th.

The major attractions Gold Saucer will bring are Triple Triad, Chocobo Racing, Gold Saucer Active Time Events (GATEs), Cactpot, and various other mini-games.

Triple Triad is a card game from Final Fantasy VIII, and will feature 80 cards at launch (more added in subsequent patches). You can obtain cards by winning them off NPCs, buying them for gil at the Gold Saucer, or obtaining them as drops from dungeons or other duties. In the video footage shown, we saw Yoshi-P’s character select from a set of decks and play a match inside Gold Saucer itself.

Chocobo Racing will also pit you against seven others in various tracks set around Eorzea, one of which shown was the Sagolii Road. You will have a stamina bar and various abilities that you can learn an execute during a race. Your chocobo will gain experience from completing races, and will gain stats and abilities as they rank up. When you retire a chocobo, you can use it to breed offspring — chocobos that potentially have better stats and inherit desirable abilities from their parents.

Gold Saucer Active Time Events were shown, which are various games where you must participate with others. One game showed Typhon blowing players out of an arena for reacting too slow. Another is a platforming game where bombs are continually dropped on the player as they climb. Minigames include Monster Toss, Cuff-a-Cur, The Moogle’s Paw, & Crystal Tower Striker — games you can play by yourself. Cactpot is a daily and weekly lottery.

Various prizes from Gold Saucer include various vanity outfits and an Adamantoise and Fenrir mount. Also revealed was a Cloudy Wolf outfit (Cloud’s outfit in Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children) available as a Veteran Reward for players who have subscribed for 720 days.
