Final Fantasy XIV All Saints' Wake 2023 event launches on October 27

Square Enix will kick off the yearly Halloween celebration in Final Fantasy XIV this week. The 2023 edition of All Saints' Wake (the in-game name for Halloween) launches on October 27, 2023, and runs through November 13, 2023. Players who participate will earn limited-time goodies, particularly a new emote and some bat-themed decorative items.

The official Final Fantasy XIV site also uploaded some new commemorative art for All Saints' Wake 2023 at a special page.

Coinciding with Halloween and All Saints'/All Souls' day festivities in parts of the real world, All Saints' Wake is an Eorzean holiday that celebrates the summoning of various saints to a celestial banquet. The celebrations are also promoted by the Continental Circus, a troupe of Eorzean performers promoting amusements, costumed parties, and other games suiting the period.

All Saints' Wake has appeared yearly in Final Fantasy XIV since 2011, barring a 2-year break for the event in 2020 and 2021. The event returned twice in 2022 to accomodate the delay of the Endwalker expansion, running late in January and on schedule in October. Last year, players received two full glamour sets, the Clown and the Wake Doctor.

Participants will be able to carry out a short series of quests and claim a free reward. This year, the All Saints' Wake award is a free emote unlock called All Saints' Charm. The emote shows the player casting a magic spell with a small wand. There's also a Wall-mounted Vampire Bats furnishing item for player apartments and houses.

Final Fantasy XIV is available on PS4, PS5, and PC. Check out the newest information about 2024's Dawntrail expansion at this link.
