Final Fantasy XIV PlayStation 3
Final Fantasy XIV Product Details
Released on TBC-2013
Immerse yourself in a new FINAL FANTASY world.
FINAL FANTASY XIV, a multi-platform, multi-region MMORPG, is the next, major epic from Square Enix. Available for both PlayStation® 3 and Windows PC, the title promises to be a watershed in user-friendliness and community diversification. Join players from around the world in an adventure of infinite possibilities.
Embark on the myriad journeys of an epic in FINAL FANTASY XIV, the revolutionary MMORPG from Square Enix. As denizens of the new and visually stunning realm of Eorzea, players will actively engage in compelling storylines narrated through high-definition, real-time events featuring the players’ own highly personalised and versatile characters.
While exploring even the farthest reaches of this magnificent world, adventurers are given the freedom to entirely alter their gameplay experience by simply swapping out equipment, and realise objectives with or without the aid of others. The entire experience is crafted to accommodate the widest variety of play styles—from the lone mercenary with only moments a day to spare, to the legion of comrades campaigning for days on end, and every combination in between.
Final Fantasy XIV for PS3 Features:
- Classes - Choose a path on which to embark—the Discipline of War, the Discipline of Magic, the Discipline of the Land or the Discipline of the Hand—and then select any of various classes of that path with which to make your way in the world.
- Community Play - Achieve goals impossible for any individual: vanquish hideous fiends; tame the wilderness; build a trading empire. Take on various roles in the organisation and support your partners even while offline.
- Auto-Translate Feature - This in-game tool allows players with different linguistic backgrounds the ability to engage in conversation, bridging the gap between cultures and making cross-region gaming a reality.
- The Armoury System - Change classes by simply equipping a different weapon or tool. Spend an hour hunting bounties as a gladiator. Spend another baking in the kitchens as a culinarian. Develop your character however you wish; anyway, anytime, anywhere.
- Guildleves - Undertake missions known as levequests, a wide assortment of activities that change daily. How many you accept—alone or with friends—and how long you quest are entirely up to you. Determine a style of adventuring based on your terms.
Final Fantasy producer Yoshinori Kitase has said that he feels the series took too long to come to the current console generation, and aims to speed up development to enable a new entry in the series every few years.
'Final Fantasy XIII was obviously the first game [on current consoles], and personally I think we took a little too long getting it out,' he told Game Reactor. 'When you think of Western AAA titles like Call of Duty, Battlefield, and Assassin's Creed, they seem to work with a lot shorter turnaround - they make a new game in one to two years. That is something we need to follow up, because that seems to be the best way to keep our fans interested and attracted to the franchise.'
There wasn't an entry in the main Final Fantasy series for the current consoles until Final Fantasy XIII in 2010.
Final Fantasy XIII-2 is set to arrive on Xbox 360 and PS3 in the first week of February 2012. It's taken a spritely 18 months to put together, compared to the five years it took to create Final Fantasy XIII.
Square Enix has confirmed it will relaunch the online multiplayer Final Fantasy 14 this summer, with the new subtitle, A Realm Reborn.
The game was originally released in 2010 but taken offline in 2012 when Square decided it wasn't good enough for fans. Since then, the game has been completely overhauled and reworked with a new server system, graphics engine and a world map that features 40 zones rather than eight. The user interface has also been rebuilt from scratch.
"We believe Final Fantasy 14 is a starting point, and that players joining us will think 'oh wow, this is great, I'll see what they can do with Final Fantasy 15 or 16,'" producer Naoki Yoshida told Eurogamer last year.
A Realm Reborn will be available for both PC and PlayStation 3, and players will be able to interact online regardless of platform. The game will enter a third closed beta trial in June, for both PC and PS3, in preparation for the relaunch. If you'd like to take part, you can register at the Square Enix website.
