We've seen some questions pop up since Fan Festival 2017 in Frankfurt where the new residential housing district, Shirogane, was revealed. We'd like to take some time to answer those questions here.
- Can anyone enter Shirogane if they enlist in a free company that has a house there?
Yes, they can. Any free company member will be able to teleport to the free company house located in Shirogane, so don't forget to set up the miniature aetheryte in your yard! However, please note that players who do not meet the necessary conditions, such as those that haven't entered Shirogane on their own, or those who have not purchased Stormblood will not be able to exit the housing districts to reach the connected areas!
- How would one reach Shirogane on their own?
You will need to progress in the Stormblood main scenario.
- How would one be able to purchase a plot or an apartment in Shirogane?
You will need to progress in the Stormblood main scenario. However, as Yoshida mentioned during the keynote, we're planning to make the purchase of land and apartments in Shirogane available after some time has passed since Patch 4.0 release.
We hope you're all looking forward to the new housing area! I know I am~!
