After a couple of years being brought back to the drawing board, Square Enix’s Final Fantasy XIV Online: Version 2.0 finally gets renamed as “A Realm Reborn” and should be on schedule for the Beta phase later this year. First launched in 2010, the game got bad reviews on almost every major gaming websites for its lack of creativity and tiresome console-style functions. While Square Enix did acknowledge the initial team did not have the PC gaming expertise to pull Final Fantasy XIV on, it looks like the game will finally be on track under the new team.
A trivial, I actually have all 3 collector’s edition of the game, from Japan, North America and Europe. Yes, just for collection’s sake. Hopefully, I can finally open the North America one and give the reborn game a serious look.
Also, here are some of the screenshots from “A Realm Reborn” if you missed them a couple of weeks back. Looking mighty gorgeous if you asked me. Click on them to view the full-size images!
