Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn for PlayStation 3:
Eorzea. A land embraced by Gods and forged by Heroes.
Seeking control of this realm and its abundant crystal resources, the Garlean Empire sends forth a massive host on a campaign to conquer its southern neighbour. Driven by madness, the commander of the invading forces silently plots to tear the moon from the heavens and hurl it down upon the land. The people of the realm soon learn of this foul scheme and join their hands in prayer in an eleventh-hour attempt to entreat the aid of the gods, only to see their endeavours fail. From within the moon emerges Bahamut, an ancient terror seething with rage fuelled by countless generations of imprisonment. Sensing the tug of fate, a powerful magus channels the last of his strength to send Eorzea’s heroes in to a temporal rift. There they wait, untouched by the flames of destruction, until they are needed again. Those heroes are you, and the hour of awakening is now. Come and witness… A Realm Reborn.

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.
