An Epic World…Reborn

With Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, Square Enix has molded an incredible MMORPG adventure that melds charm and whimsy with deep, sprawling high fantasy. Bedecked with a radiance that shines with a deep understanding of what gamers are looking for in MMO’s, Square Enix whisks players to a mythical world full of magic and–more importantly–extremely competent game mechanics to deliver a vivid experience you won’t soon forget.

The studio’s incredible dedication is clearly seen throughout the game–from the breathtaking environments to the colorful eye-catching garb of the NPC’s, every moment gleams with resplendent radiance. Fashioning a MMORPG is no small feat, and Final Fantasy XIV: ARR delivers on all fronts of the genre whilst going above and beyond in many respects.

FF 14 ARR Primal Boss Battle
A party of heroes engage a powerful primal boss, using their magicks and prowess to take on the ancient foe; players will face a variety of mini- and prime-bosses throughout their adventures.

This new entrant easily defines the word epic, melding the franchise’s striking visual flair with an intricately weaved sword-and-sorcery tale embellished on a grand scale. Securing the game as a MMO means a near-infinite stream of updated content; new quests, new stories, and of course new adventures, effectively furthering the scope and grandiosity of the game itself.

Now let us embark on our journey, fellow Adventurer, for the Mothercrystal calls…
