Final Fantasy XIV's Realms Gets Reborn
Square-Enix shows off their latest trailer for Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, unveiled at the Tokyo Game Show 2012.
Again, my mother board is damaged. Even DDO crashes from time to time at very low settings.
Actually, I believe that the demo that Yoshida played FFXIV on at Gamescom was run on a low end laptop. They made the new engine scalable to different sorts of hardware. So you might be able to give the alpha of A Realm Reborn a go.
As fun as that sounds my laptop can't handle it. I had to transplant the graphics card recently. The motherboard is still damaged. I won't have the money for a personal desktop until later.
Well, Alpha test registrations are now available to sign up with. If your interested, I highly recommend signing up for it. Especially so considering how much Naoki Yoshida's team has done =)
I see. I do know that I was apart of Final Fantasy XIV's Beta before it launched. From what I read, the beta was exactly the same as FFXIV's initial launch. I mean FFXIV's got a great core concept as an MMO, but the developers didn't plan out the details of implementing the concept well. Can't say for sure until launch.
Alpha testing begins November/December (PC only, sign ups are available). Hopefully beta testing will begin a month or two after that.
We'll see, let's hope for the best
So.... when is the ps3 beta?
Its neither an expansion nor an update, its a complete redesign/relaunch/retooling. There's an hour long talk with the development team over what they've been doing with this game. Some of the people who worked on the Agni's Philosphy tech demo even worked on A Realm Reborn as well.
Considering that is near alpha test footage shown, it can be forgiven. Testing is due to start around November/December-ish anyway.
There are some iconic Final Fantasy elements and music in this trailer. It looks really nice. I might just get it.
If Final Fantasy XIV is still broken after this expansion/update then... Well I don't know what will happen then.
Frame stutter in their own trailer, this bodes well for the players :P
At least it still sounds pretty.
