New World and World Population Balancing Incentives Introduced

Learn more about World transfers and population balancing.


The beginning of Early Access marks the opening of Omega, the new World on the Chaos data center (EUDC).

In addition to this new world and the preemptive measures mentioned in Preventing Congestion on Congested Worlds, we have also begun a number of bonus incentives to coincide with Early Access. These measures and bonuses have been implemented to encourage an even distribution of active players across all Worlds, and ensure an enjoyable player experience.

Current Status of Congested/Preferred Worlds

* Updated on 6/15/2017

The current status of each World with regards to the new population distribution incentives can be checked here.

After assessing the number of active players, Carbuncle has had its status changed to "Congested." Character creation on Carbuncle as well as transfers to this World have been suspended until congestion issues have been resolved.

Please note that Worlds that have not been listed as "Congested" may also experience temporary suspensions on character creation during peak times or especially congested time periods.

Character Creation Bonuses on New Worlds

Creating a new character on a newly established World will earn you the bonuses outlined below.

These incentives will remain in place until the active player population of a new World has shown sufficient growth. Please note that once a World has been removed from the "New World" category, the EXP bonus will no longer be applied.

Bonuses awarded at character creation

  • Double EXP bonus (until level 60 is reached)
  • Gift of 10 silver chocobo feathers, exchangeable for low-mid level gear to improve the leveling experience

Bonuses for characters created during bonus period that attain level 30 in any class

  • Gift of 1,000,000 gil(*1
  • Gift of 15 days of free play time(*2

    *1 Limited to once per data center on a single service account.
    *2 Limited to once per service account when creating a new character on either a New or Preferred World.

    When requirements for the free play time bonus are met, 15 days of play time will be added to your account upon changing areas or your next log in. In the event the Square Enix Account Management System is under maintenance, another attempt to add play time to your account will be made after twenty four hours. A notification will be sent to the e-mail address registered to your Square Enix account when play time has been successfully added.

Characters created on newly established Worlds during the bonus period will be restricted from using the World transfer service for 90 days.

Players with pre-existing characters on new Worlds are still eligible to receive these bonuses for new characters created after the bonus period has begun. All new characters beyond the first created will also receive any bonuses not specifically restricted as one-time only incentives.
