What is Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn?

When Final Fantasy XIV released in late September of 2010, Square Enix found themselves receiving some of the worst criticism ever from fans. Fans across the world shared their opinions and unfortunately, they all felt the same dissapointment with Square Enix’s latest MMORPG. Dungeons were missing, no Chocobos, features felt useless, the party system was awful and the list keeps going. People felt the game was not even close to being finished and felt that Square Enix was in such a rush to release the title. The backlash was hectic, and Sqaure Enix knew what had to be done in order to fix the game and apologize to the fans.

A year after launch, Square Enix announced, after replacing the original development team, FFXIV will relaunch a new version of the game renamed to Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. Naoki Yoshida (the new director) can’t stress enough how this is not just a patch update, nor an expansion pack, but a completely new game. Rebuilt from the ground up, FFXIV: A Realm Reborn will still have its original game settings, lore and story, but will feature a new user interface, graphics engine, terrain, content,  new client and server structure.

 

PC users can sign up for the Alpha testing set to start November, 2012 with a PS3 beta following up soon afterwards. Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn is expected to be on store shelves for Windows and Playstation 3 in 2013. If you find yourself wanting to learn more about Final Fantasy XIV, check out this link.

    I unfortunately don’t have the money or the confidence socializing with strangers to attempt to play it, but I might buy it just to show Square my support.

      I feel you on that! lol I was never really into these kind of games, but for some reason I find myself so interested in this one. I’ll be purchasing this to support Square and what they’ve been through developing this game.

  • I’ve been interested in playing XI also and I was just wondering, those that are playing, how much is the subscription? All I need to decide is whether to get it on XBOX or PC.
