Final Fantasy XIV: Shifting to Full-Blown Realm Reborn Mode

    Yoshi-P, in his recent interviews has said that the UI should be as responsive as WoW's (having told his developers to study WoW's UI) and the gameplay will be "much faster" than the current version.


    When asked what were the biggest problems in 1.0, he said the UI, lack of content, and the server structure.  Accordingly, the most emphasis was placed on the UI, content and new servers/engine for 2.0.


    I'm super excited!

    While they're at it, they need to rework their crazy account management system.

    thats the best news ive heard -even better than their trailer!-this got me excited for the game again for the first time!-i enjoyed their quests!

    i hope the new UI will speak for itself!!!!although ive heard a few things about the PC version beign released around Oct november after PS3 version- i checked amazon and they state the game for 2013 release.

    how much focus is on the Voice overs?
  • ZizouXZizouX Burbank, CAPosts: 670Member

    Min scenario / main story quests will have voice overs.


    Sidequests/quest hubs will not.  Yoshi has said they want ot produce content every 3-4 months and having everything voiced isn't worth the time or cost.


    Hint hint, we're not going to do what SWTOR did.

    I will definitely check out 2.0 when it becomes available, and this seems sooner than I had anticipated!  Hope Realm Reborn plays as good as it looks.

    And a shitload of subscribers since its launch. Lol I know what you are trying to say, but WoW really isn't a good example lol.

    It had meaning to the people who actually play the game. I'm sorry that they made a trailer for their devoted fans, and not the MMORPG hoppers. 

    The gameplay videos are coming.

    You do realize most of their money would come from these "MMO hoppers" and it would be in their best interest to make something for them as well so they're more likely to get people to purchase the game so they can you know... continue to operate?

    Are you not aware of the fact that the franchise has tens of millions of fans worldwide, on all platforms? If there ever was an IP that didn't need any of these "MMO hoppers" to be successful, it is this one.

    Using LOL is like saying "my argument sucks but I still want to disagree".

    I'll try it again at 2.0, looks pretty cool but I'd like to see gameplay on the new engine first :)
  • ZizouXZizouX Burbank, CAPosts: 670Member

    Gameplay will be shown at Gamescon in Germany on August 16, 2012 via an on stage presentation.


    So those of you (and myself) waiting for gameplay, we only have one week from today's date to get it.

    hmm, seams that they are going back to the FF 11 story but changed around "crystles again"?. the problem is that if the HOLE game is compleatly different,  so what about the players that have already bought the orignal? can they download the new copy for free? I mean SE did screw a lot of fans over.
