Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn Shown Off In Exploration Trailer

Final Fantasy XIV, Square Enix's second attempt at a second MMORGP set in their most popular universe, is steadily moving toward becoming A Realm Reborn. To give potential players an idea of what they can expect out of the upcoming revamp, a new “Exploration” trailer has now been made available for your viewing pleasure.

We announced earlier this week that Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn had officially opened its doors for beta sign-ups.

Final Fantsy XIV's initial launch a couple of years ago was something of a disaster. Players complained about bugs, broken systems and gameplay that was just plain dull. Rather than scrap the project completely, however, Square Enix shifted some positions around and got a new team working on fixing the initial game's numerous shortcomings. That's no small task and, soon, we'll be able to finally see the fruits of that labor. A Realm Reborn is drawing nearer and nearer to a wide release and, to prepare, Square Enix is slowly allowing more and more participants into the game's ongoing beta.

So, what types of things will you be able to do in this latest version of FFXIV? Well, here's a four and a half minute video giving you a pretty good idea.

Massive bosses, loads of spells and abilities and folks riding around on chocobos. Yep, that sounds like a Final Fantasy game to me. For more details and to sign up for the beta, be sure to head on over to the game's official website.
