Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn Video Demonstrates Character Creation

Square Enix have provided a first look at the character creation that you’ll have access to in Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. This footage is from the alpha build of the game, so keep in mind that it could change in the future:



The races currently available in the alpha version are Hyur (Midlander – Male) and Miqo’te (Seeker of the Sun – Female). Class-wise, you’ll be able to select archer, lancer or conjurer. Square say they’ll be showing off more videos in the near future.

    Dragoon/Lancer armor looks awesome. 

  • Silver Citizen

    I love how when he was selecting bust size, at first he chose the third from the bottom and was about to hit okay before he changed it to the second from the bottom. XD

    • I noticed this too. Afterwards he quickly decided to move on by selecting “Ok” really fast.

  • well…it certainly looks good, but question is…is it fun to play?

  • Settsuo

    New FFXIV looks so stylish and refined – nothing like the old one. I just wish it would come out sooner. All this tease is killing me.

      In my opinion, the old Final Fantasy XIV looked very stylish and refined. It may have had gameplay issues, mostly lacking in content. But it certainly looked “stylish and refined”. That that it doesn’t look stylish and refined now though, too.

  • りんごタルト@エスカのアトリエ

    Is the female Miqo’te still voiced by Rie Tanaka?

  • That was just awesome. This was the type of character creation I wanted in KoA, but never got, now seeing this has got me interested in making this my very first MMO (unless we get PSO2 first for the PSV).  

  • Seizui

    As I watch the male models, it’s like they took some of the models from Final Fantasy 8 for it. I’m a bit picky when it comes to games with Character Creation. The names… well, eh.

    Had to look back at the !mithra to see that the had allowed you to change the height, but it isn’t robust.

    …Eh, I suppose it’s passable.

  • So excited to play this! A Realm Reborn is the number 1 game, from Square-Enix, that I’m looking forward too. I hope that they announce that it will be ready soon sometime in the near future. =^_^=
