Final Fantasy XIV Comes To An End In A Grand Finale


After a short but troubled life, Square Enix MMORPG, Final Fantasy XIV, is being taken offline. In honour of the occasion and the game, Square Enix released an “End of an Era” cinematic trailer that shows the Eorzean Alliance taking a last stand against the Garlean Empire:



Square Enix aren’t killing Final Fantasy XIV, though—they’re rebooting it as Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, which will be a complete ground-up overhaul that addresses many of the game’s issues.


A Realm Reborn is currently in alpha-testing, and Square have said they’ll bring Final Fantasy XIV back online for players that want to play it until A Realm Reborn launches. You can find videos showing off A Realm Reborn below:
