Watch The TGS Final Fantasy XIV Trailer

By Spencer . September 24, 2009 . 7:06am

Take another look at Eorza, the world of Final Fantasy XIV, which is filled with Marlboros and airship battles.


The trailer highlights a beta test, but there aren’t any details about it on the official site. If Square Enix wants to stay on track for a worldwide 2010 release they probably want to start testing soon. We’ll keep an eye out for information.

    I really like the music in this trailer. Mostly the battle theme when it starts.

  • Raccoon

    Looks and sounds great :D

  • QBasic

    Those airships better be pilotable…

    • M’iau M’iaut

      Naw, they’ll just be an excuse to make a sando, hit the bathroom or start laundry while you wait 15 minutes for another one to pull into the damn dock.

    I’m not sure if it’s sad or not that we’ve seen more footage more quickly of this than Vs XIII.

  • Icon

    Looks stupendous… but I won’t be playing it. I still haven’t seen the point of MMORPGs, but I know a lot of other people have.

      I’m with you. I don’t believe in paying monthly fee to play a video game. That’s just retarded. I wouldn’t play everyday so that money would be wasted

      • Aoshi00

        Looks and sounds good, but same here. I bought the adapter and FFXI w/ HDD for the PS2 back then, played it for 2 months on and off. Most of the time I was too busy to play it (and when I did have time I wanted to play other games instead of spending days and nights on one single game). So I felt like I had to force myself to play it and level up, what a chore it was.. then I called it quits as I felt bad wasting the monthly subscription fee.. and never MMO for me again. One needs to devote his life to this kind of game..

          I’m with all of you. Aoshi00 is correct that one really does need to devote their entire gaming time to this type of title. Between full-time and part-time jobs, a wife and two (soon-to-be three) children I personally just can’t justify what little free time I get for gaming to a single game, let alone justifying the monthly fee.

          With that said, if I had a group of friends I could count on to be there when I had the time as well as a lowered monthly fee structure based upon limited playing, I would be able to justify one of these titles for a bit. I understand servers cost money and yada, yada, yada, so I’m more than willing to pay $5 a month for, say, 20 total hours in a 30-day period. That’s about all I could justify and I think there are many gamers in their 30s – 40s with family and life responsibilities who, like me, aren’t necessarily opposed to the idea of one of these titles, just the fees involved. But I’m sure Square-Enix and others felt that if they could get away with one of these fee structures they would have implemented it a long time ago. Oh well, one less paying customer I guess. No big deal, right?

          • cowcow

            I think the Japanese are more hardcore with this and the normal MMO crowd in the U.S. …they’ll play it no matter what. So there’s an audience…just not a casual audience. thats why I think a prepaid block payment with no expiration date should be another choice but oh well.
