Square Enix’s latest massively multiplayer online game (also known as Final Fantasy XIV) is being taken offline. How would you mark such an occasion? How about releasing a trailer with some of the best animation in recent memory? The “End of an Era” cinematic trailer marks the end of the short-lived MMO at the same time it promotes the upcoming Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. Hopefully, the upcoming reboot will not be completely flawed.
A Realm Reborn will receive a complete overhaul that will address many of the game’s issues. Some of these changes include a new server system, a new graphics engine, redesigned field maps and a renewed user interface, among others.
Both the PC and PlayStation 3 versions of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn are expected to come out in 2013.
