The latest Final Fantasy XIV producer's letter has been published with the news that the team is gearing up to start alpha testing the upcoming "Realm Reborn" iteration of the game. The team has a new trailer to share which is what much of the letter discusses.
And what a rebirth it’s gonna be! The disaster that will usher in the Seventh Umbral Era is threatening Eorzea with darkness and danger. The themes of destruction and rebirth are more powerful than ever for FFXIV, and so what better time to drop a few keywords in the trailers to hint at what’s on the way in the wake of the coming catastrophe. I think it’s a little something special for those playing the game now, since it shows the worlds of the current version and the future version side by side in a way that hasn’t been done before.
