(PS3+PC) Final Fantasy XIV Online

Written by ShootBlood on 05 October 2009.



Final Fantasy XIV ONLINE is set be a Massive Multiplayer Online (MMO). The game takes place on a world called Eorzea. Eorzea will have an aesthetic blend of sci-fi and classic fantasy elements. The already announced languages of the game will be: English, Japanese, French and German.


The battle and job system will be different than the ones in the game Final Fantasy XI, which utilized experience points. Group play has been de-emphasized. Both solo- and Group play have been balanced. The Official North American FFXIV ONLINE website has recently been updated: By wielding different weapons and even crafting tools, players will be able to take on the role of their choosing such as Gladiator or Thaumaturge. In general, the different roles are divided into four disciplines: Disciples of War (masters of combat arms), Disciples of Magic (self-explanatory), Disciples of the Land (gatherers of material resources and students of the natural order), and Disciples of the Hand (crafters who invest their creative ingenuity in synthesis and industry).

Plot of the game

Eorzea's Nations used to be in a constant war with eachother until fifteen years ago when the Garlean Empire, a mysterious Nation from the east razed the mightiest of the city-states: Ala Mhigo. The Nations decided to become allies to drive the enemy out of their lands, but the Empire never came, leaving a state of détente throughout the land. The resulting peace has led to a wide swath of soldiers and mercenaries suddenly without a job, and so they're now forming guilds and calling themselves under a new name: adventurers.
