Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn is essentially version 2.0 of Final Fantasy XIV
Online. The original game transitioned to the alpha version of A Realm Reborn in
November, with the finished product scheduled for a simultaneous release on PS3 and
PC in 2013. Final Fantasy XIV is in an exception in an often brutal MMO market. It
originally launched in 2010 for PC in a poorly optimized state with very little
interesting content. Square Enix continued to patch the game, but it was clear major
changes needed to be made. Other MMOs in situations like this would likely have
dwindled and eventually been shut down forever. The PC beta test starts up on
February 25 and the PS3 version will go into testing during the beta’s third phase.
The plan is to launch both versions simultaneously, though a final release date has
yet to be determined.
The MMO role-playing game Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn invites you to explore
the world of Eorzea with friends from across the world. Forge friendships, mount up
on a chocobo, board an airship with your friends and create your own unique stories
within the Final Fantasy Universe. Undertake epic quests and battle with familiar
Final Fantasy monsters alone or enlist the help of your friends. Each player will
have their own unique abilities and equipment that they have acquired during their
adventures. Work together to help forge the fate of Eorzea!
The life of an adventurer is the pursuit of fortune and the pursuit of fame. It is
the devotion of oneself to seeking out danger and glory wherever they might lie. It
is an endless quest taken up only by the most intrepid and dauntless of souls. The
people of Eorzea come with their myriad pleas and requests to their local
Adventurers’ Guild, and here it is that adventurers heed the call, whether it be the
slaying of some foul beast plaguing the countryside, or the crafting of fine wares
demanding a master’s touch.
