Default Final Fantasy XIV Online

A new online Final Fantasy is on the way apparently, reading the interview, it's quite an ambitious and exciting game.

Official Site: http://na.finalfantasyxiv.com/

Interview from MMORPG.com
Excerpt from the interview:
"Q: What are the ties to the old races of FFXI?
Tanaka: The world of FFXIV is a different one from FFXI. The races look similar so that they will feel familiar to players of FFXI, but the world is a different world, and thus the races are also different.

Q: What’s going to happen to FFXI?
Tanaka: Development for FFXIV actually began about four or five years ago and has been developed along side FFXI. FFXI is still going strong after seven years and there are no plans to stop development of FFXI.

Q: What influence has more casual games such has World of Warcraft have had on FFXI?
Komoto: While we want to make sure our players see more casual game play, we will not be a WoW clone."

Really looking forward to this, tempted to back to FFXI in the mean time and muck around with my red mage a bit.

hehe was wondering how long this thread would take, sounds interesting.

why would anyone think they'd have the same races... every world has had different ones (besides hume/humans, moogles)... though i'd say ivalice is still my favourite final fantasy world, creature wise.. much fantasy.

Q: What influence has more casual games such has World of Warcraft have had on FFXI?

yeah.... casual
ok.

Newsflash: compared to everything that came before it, WoW was extremely casual. And its only gotten more casual.

well, not really

unless you count casual as level 1-cap without the need to grind incessantly (ie casual == fun, comparatively)

otherwise, the actual TIME it takes to get from 1-80 is exactly the same as any other mmo really. (hundreds of hours of pretty hardcore play), not to mention to actually GET anywhere in the endgame, hours and hour sand hours and hours of raids, rep grinding, token grinding etc.

it's probably the least casual mmo i can think of really.

its no simpler than any other mmo either, especially in said endgame, unless you count all the carebearing addons (qh, lightheaded, the integrated levelling guides)

An update news from Kotaku
Quote:
Final Fantasy XIV is different from Square Enix’s previous MMO Final Fantasy XI. In the upcoming game, FFXIV seems to have a skill-based system.

What’s more, the game will have races similar to the races in FFXI, but with different names.
read the rest here

I dont mind if they dont release any other races than the ones listed there. I dont think you need an abundance of races to make a good game. Im not too sure about crafting and gathering being part of the 4 catagories tho. Will be interesting to see what other classes they release in these catagories.

The shots that I've seen of in game locations look amazing I must say as do the models they have proposed for the races.

Cannot wait!

Finally, a possibly half way decent game, not on the inferior level system.
