A Realm Reborn: Final Fantasy XIV Online



Update:: I guess I'd be remiss if I didn't mention that A Realm Reborn: Final Fantasy XIV(still just gonna call it 2.0) has a release date of August 27th, 2013, and phase 3 of the beta, which includes the PS3 version is slated to begin at the end of E3 week on June 14th. This is a big step as it will be showcasing not only important changes they've made based on player feedback in addition to new systems such as free companies, housing districts, etc., but it will also mark the first step of keeping their promise of a PS3 release they made so many years ago.

As Thin Crust pointed out, there's been a few trailers that have been released over the past month or so, and here they are:

A Tour of Eorzea - Part 1

A Tour of Eorzea - Part 2

Final Fantasy XIV: Job Actions

Final Fantasy XIV: Magitek Armor

Final Fantasy XIV: Gamepad interface



February 21st, 2013:Square-Enix recently went on a media tour for the purpose of promoting the game before beta starting, and Joystiq's massively.com has quite the deluge of videos and articles detailing many systems and aspects of the game. Several key elements are videos describing what I see as an excellent solution to a gamepad control scheme, as well as comparison vids between PC and PS3 showing new videos. Poor, unoptimized PS3 version...

Anyway, here's the link. I still haven't gone through all of the articles, but have at it!

Well, it's been a long while, but there have been a steady slew of alpha test videos and CG trailers released over the past few months for the new branding of the newly redesigned Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn(previously FFXIV 2.0), with the latest trailer, A New Beginning, having released today along with the Beta Test Application/Survey page. All previous players who qualified for Legacy status will have access to the Beta starting with Phase 1, while those looking to get into the PS3 Beta test(starting in Phase 3) will have to fill out an application. You can find a .pdf with the current Beta Test roadmap here.

For those who missed the aforementioned videos(including the amazing End of An Era trailer), here they are as follows:

Alpha Test Videos:

Alpha First Look #1: Character Creation

Alpha First Look #2: Gridania

Alpha First Look #3: The Black Shoud I

Alpha First Look #4: The Black Shroud II

Alpha First Look #5: Quests and Combat

Alpha First Look #6: Gathering and Crafting

Alpha First Look #7: Levequests and Party Combat

Alpha First Look #8: Instanced Dungeons

Trailers:

Limit Break

A New Adventure

End of An Era

A New Beginning


Naturally if you're all so inclined as to find out more about the new Final Fantasty XIV's back story, as well as info on new classes and jobs such as Arcanist and Summoner, as well as press releases and a developer's blog, you can check out the official site here, or The FFXIV Lodestone, which serves as the game's main supplementary site where you can find the latest game news as well as letters directly from the producer, and access the official forums.



Original Post: Well this was definitely an... awkward announcement to say the least. It makes sense considering that the FFXI team director has stated time and time again that they'll be working on the next Square MMO, but I also find it strange that they mentioned it as a PS3-exclusive, also considering that said director said multiple times that it was gonna be next-gen PC, 360, and PS3 the whole time.

Anyway, thoughts and speculation?

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?
