Default Final Fantasy XIV PS5 beta April 13

This will be optimized for PS5 not handled via BC

Quote:
More than ten years after its troubled PC and PS3 launch, Final Fantasy XIV is coming to yet another PlayStation console. During a reveal event Friday night, Square-Enix announced an open beta for PS5 will start April 13th. On the new system, the MMORPG will run in 4K resolution, and promises vastly improved performance. Itís already playable in backwards compatibility mode, but the new version will be fully optimized, and is playable at no extra cost for those already registered in the PS4 game.

Quote:
The company also announced a new expansion pack for the game, Endwalker, which is set for release this fall with a new jobs, new areas, and a level cap that goes to 90. Itís also set to end the storyline that began when the game relaunched.

Thanks.

FFXV was decent having completed that game. The car was cool though not being able to go offroad until the updates with offroad wheels was limiting. The flying option was my main goal in the game after completing it. The map was interesting. Graphics were okay.

-----------
It's strange how they release games out of order if FF14 EndWalker is a brand new game. They should really just drop the numerals at this point. Just call it Final Fantasy: Subtitle. Because does the order of the games even matter since the stories rarely connect to each other? 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16 etc.

The EndWalker trailer looks interesting, though I wish they didn't use rock/metal music in the trailer if the game doesn't include it at all, but instead is mostly orchestral music. It's sort of like if Star Wars released a new movie trailer with a rock music track.

They are not releasing this out of order. XIV has been out since 2010.

The shutdown occurred with perhaps the most promising idea of what was to come with the End of an Era video playing the second the 1.0 servers shut down.


The relaunch called a Realm Reborn started in 2013. it did not have much of a cut scene


FFXIV has had the following expansions

Heavensward (2015)


Stormblood (2017)


Shadowbringers (2019)


and Endwalker (2021).


This is an expansion for that game. It is not a brand new game.

I may buy the final 2 expansions and reactivate IDK. my big issue is the world does not feel threatening. And players are just really dumb.

Heavensward is where it really picks up. The story for all of the expansions is genuinely the best writing in the franchise imo. You should try to get back into it!

R3PO, thanks for the info on EndWalker being a new expansion for 14. I thought it was a whole new game in the series possibly as Square often likes to release lots of spin offs of main entries.

FF14 Heavensward got good reviews though it's an MMO Massive Multiplayer Online game, which is why it wasn't on my radar years ago.

Guessing Endwalker is the further continuation of the MMO game then.

I hope PS5 can match the quality of the cutscene trailers from Square/enix.

Whats nice about this game is its MMO for casuals. You can honestly get into any content within minutes. For the most part the storyline and quests are pretty easy to solo

That's good. Having to play catch up to stand a chance against other players isn't fun as with many other online games I bet.

Gameplay trailer. Interesting, but I'll pass since it's online only.

Pvp isn’t the focus of the game, you’ll play co-op, or solo pve for the most part. so no reason to catch up with people

I never played an MMO before this,I just love how casual and story based it is

I see. I was thinking of World of Warcraft where I heard other players can attack you. That's good the world of other players cannot harm you in this game if that's the case. Thanks.

You do not have to buy expansions separately. Buy the latest one and you get the rest of them. Also, the free trial now goes through all of Heavensward. Also, also, they cut some of the fat out of the ARR main story to make it go faster.

To clarify, get the free trial first, and play that content, before buying the expansion. I bought shadowbringers and it cut me off from my free trial at level 29. Wish I'd have known to play till level 60 first.

I couldn't even get past the sign in screen. I changed the password 3 times. So I gave up on it.
