Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn Continues The Saga


The real world saga of Final Fantasy XIV's original disastrous and lurching launch, that is. But it looks like this sorry tale might be in for a happy ending. A Realm Reborn is the MMO's relaunch, and Square Enix have gone hell for leather to completely rework the game into a state more acceptable to their audience. Almost everything has been redone in some way, from the game world to the PvP and PvE content, to the very server model that the game rests on. It's a complete reboot, or rebirthing, if that sounds better. No, it really doesn't, does it? Anyway, the game has certainly impressed a lot of folk at E3, and you have a chance to be impressed if you get onto the beta.

That beta has just entered the cross-platform stage, which means PS3 owners can now join their PC chums in the game world. So that's nice. Holding hands and stuff. Tear-jerking trailer below, for good measure.

The game is set to launch on 27th of August.
