Square Enix recently revealed (http://eu.square-enix.com/en/blog/changes-outerworld-services-lightning-returns-final-fantasy-xiii) that Lightning Returns Facebook functionality will be disabled in April. For those who aren't familiar, the Outerworld (http://finalfantasy.wikia.com/wiki/Outerworld_Services) is a means of communication for Lighting Returns fans around the globe. It allows you to take screenshots, post boss battle scores, or buy and sell items you trade with other players.

Twitter will remain unaffected and available, but Facebook users will not be able to:

-Post Outerworld content to their newsfeed
-View other player's Outerworld posts
-Summon other player's posts
-View the Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII Timeline Application, which will be disabled

It's important to note that you won't lose out on any in-game content. The Siegfried garb, which was originally only available by defeating Zaltys in the Lightning Returns demo and posting your battle score online, will be automatically available to you on April 1st.

Facebook is one of the dumbest and most unnecessary websites around so no actual loss.

I turned them off from the beginning after seeing a bunch of random nonsense walking about in the demo if I'm honest. :shobon:

So they're going to kill Facebook functionality right before it comes out on PC? That's kind of silly.

I killed the Facebook functionality before I even bought the game :ohdear:
