We are pleased to introduce a brand new column here at MMORPG.com that will specifically cover Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. In the inaugural column, we take a look at the changes between the original and now and what we hope will make the FFXIV experience truly reborn. Read on!
FFXIV is a bit of an oddity in the MMO universe. On the one hand, it’s an attempt to relaunch and rebrand an MMO – something rarely attempted in the industry. On the other hand, we are in many ways looking at an entirely new iteration of Final Fantasy. It might be more apt to refer to this as FFXIV-2 than to simply think of A Realm Reborn as the second launch of FFXIV. This makes writing about FFXIV a bit complex. It is simultaneously the story of an existing game’s evolution and a new game’s development.
