Final Fantasy XIV Adding Same-Sex Marriage
Square Enix has announced that Final Fantasy XIV will be receiving new content in the near future, including same sex marriage options.
Speaking during an E3 livestream producer Naoki Yoshida revealed that the popular MMORPG will be receiving a new patch (2.4) that will serve the purpose of adding in the Rogue class and its connected Ninja job as well as opening up the game’s marriage options so that any two willing characters can marry without having to worry about restrictions like race, nation or gender.
While the class additions will obviously be of interest to many players, much of the response to this patch is understandably aimed at the new same sex marriage options, which are increasingly becoming a more common standard among many MMOs. Final Fantasy XIV joining the club, in turn, could be seen as a definite step forward for the game, especially in the light of Square Enix’s less than enthusiastic response to the idea just a few years ago.
