Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn is a subscription-based fantasy MMORPG based on the popular RPG franchise, Final Fantasy. Developed by Square Enix, and the second MMORPG for the franchise, players embark on an epic adventure with their friends in the world of Hydaelyn. Ride Chocobos, board airships, and encounter Moogles in the ever-changing world of Final Fantasy.
The original Final Fantasy XIV was released in September 2010. It had largely negative reviews. As a result of this poor reception, Square Enix announced that a new team would take over development of the title. This team created both content for the original version as well as developing a brand new game which would address all of the previous release’s criticisms. Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn features a new engine, improved server structures, interface, revamped gameplay and a new story. Explore the world of Eorzea and learn more about its history, inhabitants, and cities. A new realm awaits!
