The Daily Grind: What’s your dream MMO cross-promotion?

Should or shouldn't?

I’ve always been amused by the fact that Naoki Yoshida has specifically said he’d love to have Final Fantasy XIV do a cross-promotional event with World of Warcraft. It’s both wholesome and a sign that the rivalry players sometimes establish between games is not mirrored on the development side. Plus… let’s be real, it would be pretty awesome to have a collaborative event between the two games, whatever form it wound up taking. Huge shoulders in Eorzea and gunblades in Azeroth!

Of course, there’s no reason you have to confine yourself to something that seems even that implausible with today’s topic. What’s your dream MMO cross-promotion, however unlikely? Would you still kind of like to see City of Heroes cross over with Star Wars: The Old Republic, for example, despite the many layers of impossible at play there? Just go ahead and have fun dreaming with today’s topic, don’t worry about plausibility.

Every morning, the Massively Overpowered writers team up with mascot Mo to ask MMORPG players pointed questions about the massively multiplayer online roleplaying genre. Grab a mug of your preferred beverage and take a stab at answering the question posed in today’s Daily Grind!

I would love to see a full World of Tanks conversion to the 40k universe, with multiple tanks and races.

I know they added two 40k Space Marine tanks to the game, but a 15v15 game of tanks between Space Marines and Chaos Marines, or Imperial Guard and Orkz, would be a blast.

Smite with a Warhammer 40k crossover.

It’s not an MMO cross promotion but something like FFXIV with SMITE, with all skins from all Gods in SMITE available for FFXIV. Imagine your Hrothgar or Roe male wearing Kawaii Pop outfit.

Or something like FFXIV with Persona 5, with Persona’s hairstyles and outfits available for FFXIV, and Morgana as minion. With new Deep Dungeon themed as Mementos place. And final boss in Persona 5 used as a raid boss for new FFXIV raid.

Star Trek Online cross-over with the Old Republic so that SWTOR actually get a viable space game instead of the bird on a wire and mini-game garbage they have. Even better SWG & SWTOR. :P

I’d like to see PSO2 uphold their end of collab with FFXIV, since PSO2 got multiple things from FFXIV for a collab but FFXIV never got anything in return.

My big issue with cross-promotions is that they tend to be temporary; I really dislike when content or rewards are removed, to the point I would rather they never be introduced in the first place than see them added and then removed.

Heck, cross-promotions tend to make me less likely to purchase or use both products involved.

WoW and B&S. Then I only have to sub to one account…

Oh, I can certainly agree with this… Though, for me, it’d be FFXIV and Warframe.

One sub, all the fun. <3

I just want FFXIV to somehow pull every ridiculous Square Enix property into the fold. Which got me thinking about the FF crossovers we haven’t really seen. Imagine if Terra showed up in FFXIV, telling everyone she lives on a world where Primals are permanent, and she’s half-Primal and then watch all the Scions’ heads explode.

I also still want my old Blizzard standby where we discover that Azeroth is just a planet somewhere in the Terran colonies, and the Zerg invade and the game just organically merges into Worlds of Starcraft.

But honestly, the possibilities are mostly endless once multiverses and space are involved.

Your Worlds of Starcraft idea is something I’ve wished would happen for a very long time now!
