Okay so the game was released in September of 2010, I remember some buzz about it, but i never really bought into it and I guess i was right in doing so since they're now going to be relaunching it in a much improved state.
This raises some questions on my end...
From what i can see FFXIV is currently live and playable but its the older client which requires you to buy a retail copy and sign up for a sub which is fine and dandy, but lets say i do jump into it now and create a character. Will that carry over into the new build or will this be a total fresh start? I'm guessing its the latter.
The other question i pondered up was whether or not it will re-release and continue to have a box price and a sub, or if they will just let it be B2P or F2P, or perhaps it will be "free" but you'll need to create an account and sign up for a subscription plan which i would actually like it to be that way, but i am unaware of what they're planning and if it has even been revealed.
Final question is if FFXIV is a sandbox style mmo or themepark? It definitely doesn't look to be a themepark so that makes me believe its more of a sandbox? or does it just combine elements of both parties?
I'm really considering giving this a try when 2.0 will go live, hopefully soon, cause that will allow me to be occupied whilst waiting for Archeage, ESO, EQNext.
