OP  2/20/13 8:29:42 PM#1

Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn is ready to hit its beta phase of development, a long process since the original disastrous launch not many years ago. We've got a special preview from a recent event hosted by Square Enix. Check it out before heading to the comments.

Graphically, this is indeed a whole new world. Every aspect of the landscape has been given a makeover, some places to the point where you would not recognize them from their previous incarnations and they’re now much larger. The Morabay drydocks have gone from being some rocky cliffs backdropped by a large mass of water dwelling below them are now full of ivory platforms and bustling trade. Camp Tranquil now resembles a militaristic encampment rather than an overnight bonfire in the woods with the other cub scouts. And the Black Brush plains still have a tinge of that Arizona desert plains vibe, but now there’s much more color and plant life. Technical additions like lens flares, a larger color palette and fine details like fruit growing on plants in gardens hopes to make the make the world of Hydaelyn a more inviting place to play.

I've got a stack of Gamestop gift cards just waiting to be spent on this title.

That way, if it still sucks, I won't feel like I wasted as much real money.

I am a LOT more curious though what their plans are for PS4 integration/compatibility.

With PS4 running on x86 AMD hardware, shouldn't be all too hard for them to put the PC version with the console interface on the PS4 right?

When i saw that trailer with the dragon i thought to myself "ya i would pray too pray away everyone." Very beautiful game and it really looks like a title i would be interested in we will see hopefully they offer a trial before i start forking over a sub game. Also very interested in the cross platform play that is amazing and very revolutionary i have been wonderign when they would make ps3 a mmo experience to remember with friends great game to break the ice as far as i can see.

Japanese just cant wean themselves off the god damn subscription model. I will only try i when it goes f2p when it will inevitably burn again because of the same mistake.

It worries me that this article doesn't mention much about the actual gameplay, which was really where the game took the biggest nosedive aside from the awful interface mechanics. I like the idea of past characters making appearances but I'm hoping they aren't banking on this as a way for players to overlook an overly flawed game.

The biggest problem with these games trying to "learn from WoW" is they do it in all the wrong ways. For example, they copy WoW's interface, graphics and themepark BS when in reality everyone should be copying the games minimal input lag, network stability and smoothness of combat.

A big reason that makes WoW gameplay so smooth is its extremely low poly model characters and environments and simple diffuse texture maps.  Heck, those were pretty low count models for the standard when the game launched several years ago.  Blizzard also has always had a very talented staff of texture artists that really add to the illusion of shape with those models. Those low poly models allows them to key in more animation frames that gives the combat such a fluid look.  The game just isn't a resource hog.  However gamers now a days want top of the line graphics which demands a lot of resources to render out.  PC now a days can handle a lot, but are still not affordable by everyone.  I think the one thing most devs are trying mostly to emulate from Blizzard is the accessibilty of their games to wider audiences.  If more people can play the game on their current computers, the more paying customers they will have.

Other sites review games, maybe this site never should again by your logic.

VERY excited about the new revisions done to FFXIV: ARR. So folks know we are currently recruiting people for our FFXIV: ARR chapter in our gaming community.

 

Tribe, we're a multi-gaming community that's been around for over 12 years, with active chapters in various games. Our WoW Chapter is currently recruiting to strengthen our 25-person raid team, our GW2 Chapter has recently reopened recruitment for the time, and our FFXIV: ARR chapter is recruiting for Launch/Beta.

I’ve been with Tribe since August of 2010 and have FULLY enjoyed my time during the different roles I have facilitated as a member, raider, officer, and leader. I origionally joined for FFXIV but since it's failings I moved onto other games with members within the community. Highly recommend folks check us out through our recruitment post below.

Based on past MMO with failed launches IMHO they were crazy to invest so much in to trying to make this work. Good Luck :)

Players come for the game, but they stay for the people- Most Devs have forgotten this.

"This seems a bit odd as most of the market is leaning towards the F2P micro-transaction model and it didn’t really do them much good last time around.."

 

oh ffs.. give it a rest eh? First off, no it dosent seem 'strange'. Over half the market is still sub based in terms of players, and it is waaay more then that in terms of payers. Plus look at what all the converted 'F2P' MMOs offer... oh yeah, a sub... It's enduring appeal is clear.

 

FFXIV will do just fine on a sub. It's far better to cater to the needs of a niche of paying customers than trying to appeal to the entitled squalling masses of 'F2P' and all the baggage they bring.

 

The revenue model *was not the issue* the first time round. It neither hurt them or hindered them. It had nothing to do with why the game failed for so many. Being F2P would *not* have made the game any better. It was irrelevant, so it not having it this time is not 'strange'.

 

Does every article on every sub game here have to continously include the mention of goddam F2P? It's not like you feel the need to wistfully wonder why every crappy original F2P title dosen't have a sub or consider that fact 'strange', despite the facts above.

 

Lets stop this lazy bubble thinking with regards to subs and cash shop gaming from the writters on this site and maybe we can stop writing these kind of repetitive posts (and also questioning the potential agenda at work around here).
