A Realm Reborn: Final Fantasy XIV Online

Update(Jan 13, 2015): Well folks, Final Fantasy XIV 2.0(A Realm Reborn) has been going on strong since its release back around August of 2013 with a sub base of around 2.5 million users. While it's certainly no WoW-Killer(Yet), it just goes to show that there's a place for subscription-based MMOs as long as the quality of the game is above and beyond excellent.

To a lot of people, this has certainly been the case! Up until now, there have been 4 major patch series that have introduced all types of new content from new dungeons, to new 24-Man raids with the Crystal Tower story arc and hardcore raids such as the Binding Coil of Bahamut and new class/job combo of rogue/Ninja! They've introduced two types of PvP: Wolves' Den and Frontlines, with the latter being a tremendous good time. They've also added ancillary stuff such as gardening, FC and personal housing, chocobo dying, hunts, and a HUGE amount of story-focused content such as the Misadventures of Inspector Hildebrand.

Within One week, we will finally reach the conclusion of the 2.0 storyline before a new arc is introduced early this summer with 3.0, with patch 2.5: Before The Fall.

2.5 will eventually conclude with a lead in to the game's first Expansion, Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward.

Here's the promotional site

Among many things coming are 3 new jobs: Dark Knight, Astrologian, and Machinist, new primals such as Bismark, and two new beast tribes. More excitingly will be the addition of flying mounts and airships, as well as a new playable Dragonian demi-human race known as the Au'Ra.

All of these things and more are in the pipeline for the years to come, and it doesn't look like it'll be slowing down anytime soon. If anyone's on Hyperion, hit me up! My character is Ariadne Marduk. Here's my Lodestone profile.

If anyone is playing on other servers and wants to keep track of other OCR members playing on their server, just post your character name and server and I'll add 'em to a list here on the front page! Happy gaming, folks.

It wasn't mentioned as a PS3 exclusive. There was a little wordplay on Tretton's part; he said it would be playable only on the PS3 when it launches in 2010. It'll probably make its way to 360 and PC eventually, but PS3's going to get the initial release.

It looks pretty cool; I'm interested in seeing more of it.

Yeah, they all always just mention their system even if its multi platform.

I loved the almost awkward clapping after they showed this.

Myself and a bunch of friends are avid FFXI players, and those of us that know about this thus far are pretty stoked/weirded out by the sudden WTF announcement.

It looks like a high res version of FFXI itself as it even has the same races I believe(or at least races that look like 'em) which could be a good or bad thing. Hopefully they'll take the stuff they learned in FFXI and add in some things from other successful MMOs and make it sweet.

FFXI swallowed quite a couple of years of my life. This might just be the trigger to pull me back in.

I noted that too, very clever. Let's hope the 360 version is two days after if I haven't gotten a PS3 by then.

I thought Tretton said it would ONLY be playable on the PS3?
