The Lightning Returns event will be exactly the same as the one that ran last November. It involved Lightning appearing in Eorzea and a series of FATEs against beasts from Final Fantasy XIII. It will last from Tuesday, February 4 at 8:00 to Monday, February 24 at 14:59 (GMT), although the individual chapters of the event will run at specific times.

Final Fantasy XIV is currently hosting two special events tying into its sister games Final Fantasy XI and Dragon Quest X.
