Square Enix Details Final Fantasy MMO Improvements

Last month, Square-Enix announced its upcoming refresh of Final Fantasy XIV titled Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. Despite a failed launch and rapidly dwindling player base, the company wasn't ready to give up on its MMORPG. After a pretty successful presentation at this year's Gamescom, it looks like the company has learned much from its mistakes.

Just a few days ago, the company held a lengthy presentation in its home company of Japan, heavily detailing the massive overhaul the team went through to rebuild the game. Kindly enough, the company has also translated the presentation and posted a video onto YouTube for all of us to see. Check out the gameplay-filled presentation below (turn the captions on for English subtitles):

    It could be great, but I think I'd rather go with GW2.

    here is what i have been told.

    the guy who made ff11 made this game
    ff11 started to fail so a new guy took over when the creator did 14
    ff11 rebounded and everyone was happy
    guy finished 14 it bombed hard
    new guy went to 14 and old guy went to 11 and retconed every change people liked

    from my understanding the old person is now no longer working on any ff game. and the new ff14 is from the guy who improved ff11 to the point that a dieing mmo got new players to join.

    i cant say much of the quality, but i know a crap ton got changed, it would need to be re reviewed to have a proper opinion on it at this point.

    I will never go back to subscription base mmo. GW2 already proven that 1 time paying $60 = still get AAA quality MMO. i wont be going for anything less than price/quality of GW2.
