For those unaware Final Fantasy XIV has closed it servers in preperation of Continued Alpha and soon to come Beta tests for their 2.0 client expected to release in early 2013.

The final event for the game was a large scale battle in the central zone of the game (Technical difficulties plagued it due to massive attendance) But at the end of the fighting and when the servers finally went down. Everyone was presented with a URL to watch the world end and some suprises to look forward to in the new client.

Linktastic

Enjoy and discuss, a bit of it may be "Over my head" to those who didn't play the game or know the storyline to this point, long story short Meteor was called and try as the players may it fell on the world causing massive devastation, the Characters we play were thrown into the future after the cataclysmic events of the first version of the game. We awake in the new world 2.0 (Several years after the events) to take up the fight once again in a realm reborn.

Love it, Hate it, SE is trying its damndest to make FFXIV a sucsessfull MMO franchise.

having played the open beta of the first release, I am a firm believer that absolutely nothing would save that piece of sh!t from the trash can

So instead of directing resources into getting Versus 13 out of the gate, they continue to try and salvage this POS game. Why Square, just why?

Actually if you played it just before they clsed tge servers you wouldnt even believe its the same game as when it launched im more than sure if realm reborn gets reviewed it wont get anything less that 8.

Is just too bad it won't attract many players because as you can see from the comments above, they're all set on believing this game is complete trash even though it's been out for like what, 2 years~, and they're going back to alpha beta stage in 2013.


Then again, maybe it's just System Wars hatin' cuz they are haters I suppose...

Personally I think FF14 had some nice concepts though. I liked the leveling, like how you had different classes and you could mix abilities from other classes and so on. And it was heavily focused on crafting which is something I enjoy as well.

Cuz ffxi was the best ff financial wise so uts worth investing in unlike a non numbered ff which will probably sell less than 1 mil if it ever saw the light.

Actually im one of the players who hated this game when it launched cuz it was a huge disappointment after ffxi but my gf kept on playing so i was watching how the game was evolving ut actually got way better but still not as good as ffxi but who knows i might give it a chance once v2 is out.

#8 Posted by ArchoNils2 (6238 posts) -

lol why do they keep trying to make it popular? As long as they don't go free to play they have no chance against GW2, especially with all the bad stuff you find if you want to get information about the game. They should have called 2.0 something like FF14-2 and should have used a free2play model

Yeah, the one fans have actually been waiting for since it was announced so I doubt it would sell less than 1 mil.

Cmon its been almost 7 years lol most likely most of the people who are not nto gaming sites and forums forgot about it already and even if ut sold really well i doubt that it would sell as good as any main ff game which SE already stated ffxi was tbe most profitable one you shiuld admit business wise givjng ffxiv another chance is better than investing heaviky in a side stiry ff game.

#11 Posted by Jynxzor (9309 posts) -
The best marketing SE is going to get isn't from fancy trailer but word of mouth. If 2.0 launches and is good you bet the people playing it are going to try and blow it up everywhere they can. It's very interesting to see how the game evolved from launch to the game it was before it closed totally different in almost every way. If they continue in the same vien of improvement then they may have a good product on their hands. I doubt XIV will ever be a massive MMO, but much like it's older brother XI bring in a solid crowd and revenue over many years. It's all really down to how they go about releasing the game, and how the fans willing to give it a second chance feel when it launches.

Okay first off, you need to calm down on the keyboard cause you have several spelling errors. Second, if they showed off new gameplay footage and trailers you can hype to generate for that game again. The reason it's died down was because we haven't seen anything of the game since it was last shown a year ago. Look at GTA5. Once more info came out about the game, the hype for it jumped right back up. I don't think Versus 13 should have a problem with that.

I'll give them credit for trying. If there is a trial or something of the sort I will definitely be giving it a shot.

Sry about the typos im using a tablet touch screen keyboard sux also i know ffvs will sell but as i said before no UN numbered ff so far outsold a main numbered one and out of sll the numbered ffs SE said ffxi the last mmo was their most profitable im talking business wise only i know an mmo will never be better than ffvs.

Well that was depressing.

#20 Posted by Sollet (7395 posts) -

I've seen a couple of live streams for this game.... It's more or less the same game.

Sure they've changed the UI (made it more user friendly), added a pointless jump function etc., speed up the TP gain in combat...
But the biggest problem for me is that the core gameplay largely remains the same...

MMORPG with turn based combat (lol...), time consuming boring crafting etc.

Oh and before you start white knighting I was a huge FFXI fan (own all expansions as well), I still own the original FFXIV. They are still pollishing a turd.

Well considering not only are they getting money from actual game sales but monthly fees it's hard to argue that FFXI was their most profitable. The thing with 14 was that it launched as such a colossal trainwreck that are any fans of XI gonna really return not to mention with games like Guild Wars 2 having no monthly fees and WoW still remaining king. I'd just wish Square would stop pissing around the development of Versus 13 and get that **** out already instead of working on 13 sequels we never wanted or asked for.

Live stream of developers showing off concept art, gameplay for FFXIV: RR.. But it's in japanese. http://www.twitch.tv/criticalchocolate but the guy who owns the stream is doing a bit of translation.

#23 Posted by Jynxzor (9309 posts) -

Bit more translation

Guy is doing best he can to keep up, but so many people on his good Doc it's glitching out on him.

They've likely invested far more into FFXIV that VSXIII, plus they likely have seperate teams working on them.

well from the sounds of it, square enix just made a whole new game and kept the name, so who knows.
#28 Posted by BrunoBRS (73261 posts) -
so wait. the moon was bahamut. which exploded out of it. some sages tried, and failed to seal him ina new moon. and then he destroyed the whole world. but the players were teleported... somewhere. well i'll give them two things: first, square enix still knows how to make amazing CGI. second, that was VERY final fantasy-ish, so props for keeping the vibe of the series on an MMO, if only during the cutscene.

That's exactly what I thought too. The spells particularly were very much FF. The beams from Bahamut and the whole blue moon spell looked straight from a normal FF game.

It reminded me a lot of the battle in FFIX where Bahamut assaults Alexandria and Alexander appears. Actually some of the parts are the exact same lol

That is true for a lot of MMOs for me (if they came over here that is). I don't like the idea of a sub fee on any game.

the new XIV looks like it's done a lot of improvements, and i like supporting a company that admits to its mistakes and works hard to fix them, even if it means redoing the entire game. but paying monthly, i refuse to do that.

That is a pretty awesome way to ending a MMORPG. Instead of just you know "server lost connection". Had a glimpse of ingame at the time, huge meteor in the sky and thatsuspenseful music in the background. Pretty epic.
