Square Enix has released a new developer diary for Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn which focuses on the game’s new F.A.T.E. (Full Active Time Events) system.
Basically these are random events which can occur in the world and come in several flavors, such as a giant monster or hundreds of smaller monsters. Players must work together to defeat these events. A small warning will flash on the screen alerting players in the area that an event is starting allowing them to join in on the action.
