Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn officially launches today
We've been playing Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn nonstop in the office the past few days. The MMO which has been in an early access state officially opens its gates to the masses today. It's worth noting that we've experienced some login issues due to overcrowded servers early on, but that's to be expected with the launch of a new MMO.
“We are extremely proud of all the work and effort spent creating Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, and I hope that both new and old players enjoy this Final Fantasy experience,” said Naoki Yoshida, producer and director of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. “We look forward to supporting this title for many years to come, always listening to the community and delivering rich content updates and new stories that our fans deserve.”
The game takes place five years after the realm of Eorzea was ravaged by the unleashing of Bahamut, the most powerful of the god-like Primals. One of the key features in A Realm Reborn is the Armoury System, a feature that allows you to change your role, abilities, and skill on-the-fly, without having to create a separate character entirely.
