SquareEnix Wishes FFXIV ARR will Dominate the MMO Game Market

Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn will be released on August 27th, the developer of FFXIV hope the new version will make FFXIV game be popular again.

The story of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn unfolds in Eorzea, five years after the conclusion of FFIV. The primal dragon Bahamut, released from imprisonment within an artificial moon, has ushered in the Seventh Umbral Era, an age of apocalypse that has left much of Eorzea in ruin. Through divine intervention, the hero of FFXIV escaped the devastation by traveling in time to the future.

Many reviews highlighted improvements made by game developers on some of the most criticized aspects of FFXIV, including the game engine, HUD and combat system. Player parties engage in combat with enemies, using a variety of skills, abilities and tactics against their foes. Damage can be dealt via physical and magical means to enemies. Enmity is an important concept in the combat system, where certain enemies may focus their attention on particular members of the heroes party based on their actions or other characteristics.

Developed for the PC and Sony’s PS3 and PS4 consoles, the new Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn will have a few interface differences among the platforms. PS3 users will use the "Cross Hot Bar”, an interface reminiscent of the XrossMediaBar, to interact with various menu, map and action options.
