This year’s Final Fantasy XIV April Fools’ Day joke was the creation of a fake gathering app for the game called Final Fantasy XIV Go.

According to the description, the app turns the real world into a hub of gathering nodes, allowing players to gather resources while out and about.

“With the unique combination of Square Enix’s cutting-edge software and your smartphone geolocation capabilities, you can harvest in-game resources outdoors, in the real world,” Square Enix adds. “GO brings our incredible community even closer together. By connecting with your friends you can discover what Eorzea has to offer in your own city, country, or beyond! Miners, botanists, and fishers! It’s time to GO.”

Of course this is just a joke, but the game’s Lord of Verminion mode also started as an April Fools’ Day joke.
