Official youtube channel: http://www.youtube.c...NTASYXIV/videos

 

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.

I honestly wouldn't mind trying it. It should be an 'interesting' experience.

I've been quite interested in trying this out.  Not sure if I'll actually follow through and buy it, but it's tempting me.

New video.

 

 

From the email I just got there's a "Welcome back campaign" for those that bought the original. They're only giving us 2 weeks free play instead of a month, which is kinda bullshit if I'm reading that right.

 

Still, I'm going to jump in for a couple of weeks after launch. So if anyone else is in, we might as well team up, that's half the point of MMO's.

Nice, I'm interested in hearing your first impressions. I'd opt in to the beta as well but I'm still playing other things at the moment.

I'm guessing server choice doesn't -really- matter for beta (characters created in this phase are deleted before the next phase etc), but is anyone already on a certain server? I'm kinda gonna assume no one is, so when I get around to actually playing I'll let you guys know which one I'm in if anyone wants to be my friend :')

Cool. I'll join that server when I start then. I'll be playing a dragoon lancer type character as my main, and will be specialising in fishing as a job / craft or whatever they call it.

NOOOOO!

I am so upgrading my internet plan tomorrow.

Does anyone else feel weird playing mmo/rpg games on consoles?
I do. I use to be a mmo/rpg freak. I use to spend so much time on the pc.
