Here's a heartrending new trailer for Final Fantasy 14: A Realm Reborn
Five minutes of Square Enix’s trademark jaw-dropping cinematics show the Eorzean Alliance in a desperate struggle against the Garlean Empire.
We almost shed a tear with this one, as the Eorzean Alliance composed of the peaceful city-states attempt to fend off the destructive advance of the technologically advanced Garlean Empire.
While the Final Fantasy 14 hero classes fought valiantly – from gladiators to archers and thaumaturges --- an unleashed Bahamut proves too much to handle for the coalition forces and force what few survivors to retreat and fight another day.
Not only gorgeous to watch, this new trailer called “End of an Era” is also symbolic for Final Fantasy 14, a 3D fantasy mmorpg that has had its share of struggles and is trying to start fresh with its PC game revamp and simultaneous release on the PlayStation 3. The old version has shut down its servers in preparation for the relaunched version, Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, scheduled for a mid-2013 release.
The fantasy online rpg has already begun alpha testing for the new version in late October, and comes packed with a new server system, a new graphics engine, additional gender options for existing races, reworked jobs system and fully fleshed out 1v1 and large-scale PvP content.
