Witness the epic rebirth of one of the biggest RPG franchises in history as Square Enix release Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. Final Fantasy XIV originally released 3 years ago but despite the popularity of the Final Fantasy franchise, the game was considered a failure by developers, players and critics. Since that time Square Enix have taken the game offline and spent 3 years developing it’s rebirth in Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. The game launched in late August and despite some typical launch day woes, players and critics welcomed the latest MMO adaptation with welcome arms.
Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn is arguably one of the biggest MMO projects to grace the online world today. It’s filled with innovation, unique features and tons of side content. One of the most popular features of the game is the FATE system. FATE quests are dynamic events that occur randomly throughout Eorzea. As players participate in their regular daily activities they can encounter special events that require collaboration with other players in order to succeed. Imagine exploring the fantastical world of Eorzea as a giant Malboro attacks a nearby settlement, forcing players to respond as they combine arms to defeat a serious threat. These are FATE quests.
Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn also utilizes a similar class system to that in Final Fantasy XI. Players are able to select a class during character creation but are free to change once they reach a certain level, even combining the abilities from two FFXIV Power leveling different classes to create their own unique mix. This unique feature spreads further into the combat system, offering players one of the most interactive features seen in an MMO game.
Players are able to activate abilities in quick succession to utilize additional effects, damage and other bonuses. This puts players in control of the combat, rather than mindlessly activating abilities with no thought other than maximum damage. Limit Breaks also make a return as groups of players can accumulate damage to activate a massive Limit Break capable of deal devastating damage and adding awesome status effects.
