Final Fantasy XIV Video Travels Deeper Into The Black Shroud

Remember the Black Shroud area in Final Fantasy XIV? It’s the area of the game’s world that contains the city-state of Gridania, and Square Enix showed it off last week. Or rather, they showed off part of it. There’s more to the Black Shroud than we’ve seen, and you can view more of it in the video below:

    To be honest, I still miss the deep green Gridania.

    But with every new showing I’m becoming more impressed by the new Gridania. One think you cannot blame the new Gridania of lacking, is variety.

    As great as it looks, all we’ve seen so far is Gridania… still no reveal of other areas besides maybe one screenshot of Thanalan (and a railroad!).

    (FFXIV player, finished all content)

      I’m jealous. Stupid me abandoned the game.

    • Draparde

      lol, can’t say ive finished (all) content, but i did quite abit!

      i’m sure we wont see the other 2 areas until beta unfortunately :/ …which will be the same time we see housing and stuff too. maybe its not unfortunate…

    If only this was single player…

      Login, assume everyone else is an NPC. Done.

      The game can be played solo, unless you want to do dungeons or difficult quests, then you have to push your imagination. :P

  • Look like Nopon Village in Xenoblade

    This reminds me of Final Fantasy XII. The music and everything.

    • Justin Whiteaker

      I agree with you, and it makes me insanely happy.

      • Settsuo

        Same here. Final Fantasy XII is my personal favorite second only to VI.
