Great news for PS4 owners who are also fans of the Final Fantasy series. The PS4 version of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn has been given a release window of April 2014 for Japan. Gamers who also have it on PS3 will be receiving a free upgrade to the PS4 version and once they upgrade from the PS3 to the PS4 version, their FF XIV player account will no longer work on the PS3.
There will be a beta period for Japan kicking off in Japan on February 22, 2014.
Brand new trailer for the MMO release of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn has been released which looks amazing.
In the trailer, characters can be seen making their way through the snow in the Magitek Armour which bring backs memories of Final Fantasy VI. It’s only a quick glimpse but you can have a look at it below.
Square Enix MMORPG, Final Fantasy XIV, has finally hit the end of the road after a not too long production cycle. FFXIV will be taken offline and to mark the event, SE have released a trailer which pits the Eorzean Alliance up against the might of the Garlean Empire.
But fans need not shed any tears as this is all part of the reboot intended for FFXIV. It’s currently in the middle of a massive upgrade that will look at the numerous issues that many players had with the game. FFXIV will be relaunched as Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn and is currently in alpha testing across Japan.
Famitsu magazine has revealed in Japan that Square Enix plans on bringing forth new details for Final Fantasy XIV at this year’s Tokyo Game Show. The details came to light during an interview the magazine ran with developers involved with the game.
These claims seems to suggest that there won’t be any FFXIV news at the upcoming Final Fantasy 25th Anniversary Event this weekend. The interview went on to say that some one of the interface will be changed compared to what gamers are expecting. One of the changes has been made to the targeting system where you’ll have a targeting circle now and will be able to switch between targets in your circle.
Square Enix have spoken up about the next proper installment in the Final Fantasy saga, Final Fantasy XIV, and the news ain’t great, sorry to say. A closed beta test of the games is still ages away with nothing expected until October or November 2012 meaning the game itself won’t be hitting store shelves until early 2013 or even well into that year.
For more information, in Japanese, head on over to the Lodestone site. Andriasang, who reported this, has managed to grab some images from the site PDF documents which are below.
