Steady, Ready, GO! The Race to World First for FFXIV's newest Ultimate The Omega Protocol has officially started! The last race last year took the first team Neverland about 6 days to complete and every other one even longer. So strap yourself in for some exciting days, while listening to the game's amazing soundtrack!

As a refresher, Ultimate fights are the flat-out pinnacle of difficulty in FFXIV. These fights take an intense 15–20 minutes and are highly choreographed. To do these you need discipline, endurance and lots of training.

This Ultimate is based on the raid series from Stormblood and will feature a wild mix of the bosses present in it. Interestingly these fights feature a large amount of villains from other Final Fantasy titles, so it'll be especially interesting how YoshiP and the dev team will translate it into one big fight.
