It’s safe to say Final Fantasy XIV was disastrous for Square Enix not only financially but its less than stellar quality also delivered a rather damaging blow to the company’s reputation. However, Square still believes the game has the potential to be something special, despite all that’s happened. So, Square put a new development team together in order to rebuild the game from the ground up and after spending about two years in development, the release of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborm is looming.
To celebrate the targeted springtime launch, the developers have released a trailer to give potential players a glimpse at the game’s bold new world.
The real-time footage of the PC and PS3 versions used in the trailer definitely looks like a great leap forward from the previous effort and I have to admit, the Final Fantasy team has put together a rather beautiful world. But the all-important question remains, “will A Realm Reborn play well enough to heal the wounds caused by its predecessor?”
With the first round of beta tests kicking off tomorrow, I suppose we’ll be finding out soon enough.
