Final Fantasy 14 shows off completely revamped Gridania city-state
Gridania, one of the starting city-states in Final Fantasy 14, has received a major facelift which we see in this new First Look video.
“This video takes us on a tour through the completely revamped Gridania. The city-state has taken on an all-new look that features everything from a refurbished aetheryte plaza to cuddly delivery moogles! We really wanted to liven up the mood of the entire metropolis, so we focused on bringing the surrounding environment to life by adding babbling brooks, lush foliage, and a dynamic populace. You'll also notice that the names of unique landmarks appear on screen as you explore,” said Square Enix, the developer of Final Fantasy 14.
After a rocky and critically-deadpanned release, the fantasy online rpg has been hard at work making changes to the change and planning a re-launch with the title of FFXIV: A Realm Reborn. Part of its mmorpg overhaul involves making combat less tedious and more fun, as well as upgrading graphical elements such as the starting city-states.
Gridania is the first city-state to be featured in the First Look video series, and future videos could feature the other two – Ul’Dah and Limsa Lominsa. FFXIV fans have expressed their excitement over at the forums for upgrading the locations with a mix of familiar elements as well as exciting new details.
