When I was a teen, I spent my very first paycheck purchasing a Playstation console and a copy of Final Fantasy 7. At that moment I knew I was hooked for life. Since then I have had the opportunity to play most of the Final Fantasy releases, except for the MMO style titles (FFXI and FFXIV). However, now I wonder what the Final Fantasy world would be like as a player, commanding a single toon whilst exploring new lands and meeting new foes…
Hearing that Square Enix recently announced a complete revamp and relaunch of their second Final Fantasy MMO, titled Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn (aka version 2.0) is exciting news. Complete with Chocobos, Moogles and the ability to play with friends worldwide, this game has true potential for greatness.
Players in this MMO can choose to be one of 5 races: the small childlike Lalafell, The tall, sleek and long-living Elezen, the muscular Roegadyn, the diverse Hyur, or the solitary, feline-like Miqo’te.
Awesome Miqo’te race concept art!
After choosing a race, the player then chooses a clan within that race to join as well as class, guardian and birth date. From the looks of the character creation screenshot, the features are fairly customizable; allowing for unique looks and oodles of personalization options.
A look into character creation.
But until then, you can learn more about the lore, characters, threats and more from Final Fantasy XIV:A Realm Reborn by hitting the official website and giving them a “like” on their official Facebook page.
Waiting sucks, but this’ll be worth it (I hope)!
