Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn Soundtrack Holds a Hidden Surprise

FF14

A member of the Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn community team cryptically hinted at "something hidden away" inside the game's soundtrack.

The Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn soundtrack has a special something hidden inside of it, according to a member of the game's community team named Bayohne. The team has revealed little else about the "something hidden away" other than the fact that it is hidden.

Specifically, Bayohne teased, "It seems that the soundtrack includes something else, something hidden away inside the data. We've gotten word that it's locked and no one has figured out how to unlock it, but perhaps... perhaps using the name of the one from the 'bridge' would be the key to opening it? Hmm... I wonder!"

What the hidden something could be is a mystery to anyone who hasn't found it already. A password is needed to open the file, which is named "Secret." To figure out the password, think back on Bayohne's hint: a bridge. For anyone who was looking forward to music from Patch 2.2, the secret is a welcome surprise. The password is already out on some sites and online communities.

Copies of the Realm Reborn soundtrack also include a bonus code for the minion "Wind-up Bahamut." Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn launched last year for PC, PS3, and PS4.

Well then what is this hidden surprise? Or am I going to have to Google it myself?

I guess they didn't want to spoil it for anybody who wanted to figure it out themselves?

Unless the bridge hint means "Clash on the Big Bridge" then I'll be disappointed.

And after Googling, that's exactly what it means.

That's the first thing I thought of too when I head "Bridge".

Isn't that Gilgamesh's theme song from Final Fantasy V? Was Gilgamesh the password? I was hoping for "Monkey".

According to Reddit, the password was Gilgamesh

In today's FFXIV update they have in fact added Gilgamesh as a boss battle (yes, it's on the bridge) so I suppose this is good timing for this announcement.
