FF14 Online Announced for PS3 PC at E3 available in 2010

You can enjoy HD Trailer at Worldwide official site

http://www.finalfantasyxiv.com/


I am adding today FF14 Q & A session from SE conference for those who miss it , especially for our Asia Players who are sleeping rite now.


Live Session Q & A
======================
Q: What are the ties to Final Fantasy XI, if any?

A: While you may have noticed that some of the same type of races appeared in the trailer, the world of FFXIV is different from FFXI. The reason that we made the races similar to the FFXI races is so FFXI players could choose a similar type of race in the new game. For example, in movies, you might have an actor that plays many different roles. Please, think of it that way.

Q: What happens to Final Fantasy XI now that we're moving to FFXIV? Are you going to phase it out or continue to publish new content for XI? How will the development team be split?

A: The development for FFXIV started 4 or 5 years ago with primary ideas. Development started a few years ago, while FFXI was still being supported. FFXI will continue to be supported. There is another year of content planned. There are no plans for the near future to stop development on FFXI.


Q: What influence have games like World of WarCraft have on the development of FFXIV?

A: As with WoW, we want to aim a bit for the casual user. However, we don't want to make a copy of WoW. We believe we will have things that are unique and will stand out from that game.

Q: Will combat be more action oriented or turn-based?

A: We cannot talk about the battle system at this time.

Q: FFXI has evolved a lot over the years, especially in the areas of player accessibility and the ability to solo. Will you carry over features like level sync and other features to FFXIV?

A: Yes. All of the knowledge and experience we gained from FFXI will be used in the development of FFXIV. At the launch, we intend to have content for solo players as well as large-scale battles. We want a wide-variety from the start.

Q: Are you planning a simultaneous worldwide release or will it be released in Japan first?

A: Yes. At the launch, this will be a worldwide simultaneous launch on PS3 and Windows PC. English, Japanese, German, and French versions released at launch

Q: Will all servers be worldwide or split by territory?

A: The current plans are to have worldwide servers that are cross-platform and cross-region. We will do a beta test and look at the balance and player experience. We want to look for a good balance between region and cross-region play.

Q: Will you be taking feedback from your FFXI users?

A: Yes, we still get a lot of feedback from our FFXI players and will continue to take feedback as we move into beta. The game will change as it goes.

Q: Will you try to move players from XI to XIV or will they be separate communities?

A: It's up to the community themselves. We envision users that will hopefully play XI one day and XIV another. They will be independent, but users are free to play both.

Q: Are there plans to localize the game in Spanish?

A: Currently, there is no Spanish version in development. We'll consider it if enough Spanish-speaking users demand it from us. Getting good translators in Japan is hard, but if there's enough demand we will consider it.

Q: How can users transmit this demand?

A: We will conduct marketing research.

Q: Is there any special element in the MMO genre that you will improve with this game?

A: Our plan from the beginning was to make the best Final Fantasy game available. That is our vision for XIV. Then we thought, how can we make the best FF game and we came to the conclusion that it would be an MMORPG. It was decided to make the best FF first, then led to the decision to make it an MMORG and use that genre.

A: However, we are trying to implement a lot of new systems that other MMO's haven't used in the past.

Q: Why did you decide to make a new game rather than continue to evolve FFXI?

A: It all comes down to, originally, FFXI was designed for the PS2. It then moved to PC and Xbox 360. A lot of people have asked for a port to the PS3. With an MMORPG of this size, you have to develop new content. Porting to a new technology would take a lot of effort. Instead, we decided to use that time to make something new.

Q: Yesterday's trailer that was shown, was that running of a console or was it pre-rendered?

A: There were parts that were pre-rendered and parts that were running on the in-game engine.

Q: Is that the quality you're aiming for? The scene with the Galka fighting, is that what you're aiming for?

A: Yes, that is the part that was running in-engine.

Q: In that scene, we saw many parties and many enemies. Is this the new focus: many parties fighting many enemies?

A: I cannot say too much, but we hope to have battles that are many vs. many and many vs. one.

Q: What would you like to emphasize with this game? What is different from FFXI?

A: For FFXIV, the keyword that we've been using is "The Growth and Development of the Character." We will have the same type of storytelling and high-quality graphics. We also want to expand and create new in-game systems. The player can grow & develop in a more natural way without putting too much weight on the player. We will expand the job system to make it fairly different from the one in FFXI.

A: Another very important concept that takes a different direction from FFXI, for FFXIV we want to make it so the player can choose to play solo, in a party, 40 minutes, all-day... there will be content for ALL of those play styles and systems for all of those play styles.

Q: On the beta process, will current XI players get in?

A: As with the actual release date of the game, we don't have a concrete beta schedule yet. We will have a beta and look forward to more information about then shortly

Q: Will FFXI characters be portable to XIV in any way?

A: The game is completely different. There will not be any XI character transfers to XIV. However, the character design is familiar and XI players will be able to create a similar character.

A: We will NOT be using PlayOnline, but friend lists will transfer over.

Q: If I'm new to the MMO genre, why would I choose FFXIV over other games?

A: We believe that players will fall in love with the world & story that we have created.

Q: I've been seeing information that the title is free to play, is this true?

A: No pricing has been decided at this time. It is still TBD.

Just saw that preview myself... guess that explains why it seemed as if they were slowing down on FF11 development, or at least losing some focus. Had no idea they were working on rapture and a whole new online FF game at once.

Sheesh....

#8Tokyorose, Posted: Jun 02 2009 at 11:33 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) same ffxi races. I saw these videos about a month or two ago, but i couldnt say anything about it due to the person who showed me could fired. About 20 minutes of movie was seen. If i can get the videos again, ill post pictures of mithra, galka, elvaans and tarus but it wont be until later this evening. Keep in mind if i post the pictures they wont be in color, the video i saw was before they were completely done.

Thought about that myself... can't say for sure, I guess.
I thought maybe the "only on ps3" thing might be a clue it wasn't. Guess we need to wait and see. Still, though, an actual replacement for online FF is surprising to me. I thought they had said in the past that was not what "rapture" was.
Could be mistaken, though.

I'm signing up for the beta as soon as possible.

I probably won't play it after that point unless the beta is extremely good, but that's besides the point.

Need to buy a PS3 as well. Was there for sure FFXI races in the trailer?

I KNEW it was an MMORPG right when they said it. I so hope we see more tomorrow from Square Enix.

Another 1-player RPG being announced atm would be TOO ridiculous lol.

Excited!
I'm really glad it's an FF MMORPG!!

Youd have to think at some point they would go multi-platform, even if that means just to the PC. There is too much money to be made for them to keep it PS3 exclusive for very long.

Im watching the G4I saw that Galka I knew it was related to FFXI, then I started hoping that FFIV would be Online and when the trailer ended there it was Final Fantasy IV Online!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Let the speculations begin:

1. Project Rapture was FFIV Online all along!
2. We will be able to transfer our FFXI characters to FFIV! (There were Humes and Galka on the trailer so it should be possible)
3. We might be able to also transfer our FFXI belongings to FFIV!
4. FFIV will be a direct sequel to FFXI!
5. To all the naysayers, this will be the real way to continue FF MMO for all of us FF fans!
6. The game will be the WOW killer.
7. It will be an exclusive release for PS3, as stated by the SE reps on E3, but it will later be released for XBOX360 (maybe, because of lolXBOX360 limitations) and PC. Sorry PS2 users seems you are all SOL, but you can buy a PS3 finally and for a good reason you can still be a Sony fan!
8. ???
9. Profit!
10. I am gonna play FFIV Online!
11. Eortza!!!

They said PS3 as the only "console" it's exclusive to, PC =/= console, so I'm sure it will be coming to that at launch as well.

Am I the only one thinking that Final Fantasy XIV is to Final Fantasy XI as Ultima Online II is to Ultima Online or Everquest II is to Everquest.

(Hope I didn't give SAT nightmares to anyone here...)

Anyway, I'm not sure how I'll divide up the time.

And it's definitely going to give me a PS3 temptation. Haven't made the "plunge" yet because PS3 doesn't have PS2 Backwards Compatibility! >.<

P.S. Am I the only thinking "FFXIV is going to be awfully wordy to say as opposed to FFXI..."?
