Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII's Outerworld services are coming to an end

The social network compatibility with Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII – dubbed “Outerworld Services” – will be coming to a close after two years in operation, Square Enix revealed in a support message.

Starting on April 26th, players will no longer have access to features such as news and updates, submissions to Outerworld Services, Outerworld NPCs, rewards from the Outerworld and the ability to post to social networking sites.

The Outerworld Services was something fairly new to the Final Fantasy series – allowing players to share their custom Lightning, compare battle scores and sell items.

Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII recently saw a release on PC, following its launch on PS3 and Xbox 360 back in 2014.
