Release date just announced as 27 August 2013 on PC & PS3.
After the flop that was released in 2010 I wrote off the money I spent buying it as a bad gamble. I had hoped that they would patch and fix the game over time and it would end up being worth playing. And finally it may actually be the case.
Anyone that bought the original FFXIV will be able to play A Realm Reborn, and there's no need to buy it again.
According to this, PC and PS3 are not going to be segregated and will be playing on the same servers.
It will be using a monthly subscription fee model @ $12.99 per month, with discounts for longer term subscriptions.
Benchmark software is available for PC users to test their rig on various settings and get an estimate of how well the game will actually run. http://eu.finalfanta...k/en/index.html
I just tested my rig out on maximum settings at 1920x1080 and still scored high, but I'll definitely be lowering the settings to ensure steadier fps as some of the larger battles made her chug a little.
I'll be giving it a go for a month once it's released as you get a month's subscription with the initial purchase. I'll update this with my opinion then. If anyone has more info, or anything to add, fire away.
