This is a disheartening blow to fans on the series but ended up being a blessing in disguise as, after two additional years in development, FFXIV Gil has created its to us as “A Realm Reborn”. The state relaunch date was August 27th and players both new and old were invited to the revamped world of “Eorzea”.
Final Fantasy XIV was handed a chance that few games receive, a 2nd chance. Over the redevelopment time, Final Fantasy publisher Square Enix turned probably the most poorly received games into one that shattered the record for highest amount of concurrent users in a open beta for Japanese games with more than 150,000 concurrent users.
High of this success have been related to the passionate leadership of the game’s new director, Naoki Yoshida because he took over as the motivator behind the improvements towards previously lackluster game.
As a possible MMO there are numerous elements seen in FFXIV that provides it a unique feel. Many modern MMORPGs focus heavily on single elements and neglect to embrace others within a meaningful way, producing incomplete experiences. FFXIV balances itself well between its expansive story, smooth combat system, in-depth character creator and finely tuned progressive PvE (Player vs. Environment) content.
