Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn (PS3 & PS4)
Latest Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn Alpha Footage Goes Deep Into the Dungeons

Yet more alpha gameplay footage for Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn has found its way onto the web, showing the MMORPG's instanced dungeons that you'll be able to explore

It's in the dungeons where you'll face the likes of Galvanth the Dominator, a big squid-faced bastard hell-bent on destroying (and presumably dominating) your party with spells and stuff.

Check out the video below for more, then head into the gallery for eight new screenshots, a smattering of which you'll find below too. Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn is scheduled for an early 2013 launch on PS3.

Those are PC shots.

LEts see some with the PS3 UI (which does actually look good showing MMO's can work with controllers).

Oh and that 1st pic after the vid someones been playing Forgotten Relams eh :) Mind Flayers.

@2 Actually, Damoxuk, and

They've been in FF games since the first FF many, many years ago. But I can see how you'd make the Forgotten Realms comparison ;)

@4 They've both been around for about as long. The Forgotten Realms setting was made around th same time as the original D&D, then was later brought into the fold as an official game setting.

Wait, 14? Isn't this the game that massively flopped on PC because it was a complete piece of shit? What makes Square Enix think more people want it? What makes them think people want more Final Fantasy at all after what they've done to the franchise in recent years?!

The last really good FF imo was FFX. These screens look great tho, might have to check it out on ps3 once it gets released. Hell maybe even on the pc depending on the reviews

It has been re-made from the ground up by Yoshida. Effectively, it's an entirely different game. I have it on the PC and was lucky enough to become a legacy player so it will be cheaper for me in the future. I will however buy the PS3 version and just log-in with my PC account.

Screenshots look great!

@9 So it's a completely different game, but with the same title? I'm not being a smart ass, I really want to know. I haven't been following this because as #6 said, all I've ever heard is that the game was terrible and a huge flop on the PC.

@11 it was just final fantasy 14 before, they fired the whole original team and have been working a long time on rebuilding the whole game from the ground up, now its final fantasy 14: 2.0 or a realm reborn. (a realm reborn explains itself). They have been doing a good job from what i noticed, it really does look a lot better than it did before, ill try it out for sure.

Can't wait :)

Won't be on current gen systems? Wut? The PS3 beta starts in March-ish and my low end laptop runs the alpha of XIV-ARR fine, so PS3 will destroy it.

Also PS3 screenshots have been shown a fair few times recently.

They where even posted on here.

People still play XI, myself included, because it is still good and still has stuff to do. XIV wasn't as bad as it was made out when it launched, it was just unfinished content wise - wasn't a great deal to do.

the bad thing about porting this over to PS3 is that everyone will just go for the trophies and then quit because no way in hell would anyone keep paying $15/month to play an MMO on a console when the PC version is the ultimate version especially for MMO's

Why Final Fantasy 12? What relation does this game have with Final Fantasy 12? I know it wasn't everybody's cup of tea, but FFXII, in my opinion, was still a stellar title.

#15 Depends what the trophies are if they are say similar to Wow achievements then there may be some what take INSANE amount of time or require you to take part and kill end game boss etc.

Oh and although the people on THIS site may just go for the trophies not everyone is like that - some people still play for fun :)

I didn't watch the whole video, just skimmed through but everything looks like stand there and dps/heal/tank. Move on and do it some more. MMOs are more than that now, hopefully there are actual mechanics to the fights that aren't shown or that I missed.

I'm a bit sceptical about this game. The original version of FF14 was horrible. Plus there was all the controversy regarding the possible outsourcing of it to a Chinese company. I'm guessing SE is probably more involved in Reborn but sometimes you just can't polish a turd. Too bad because FF11 was amazing back before WoW took over the scene.

@15 It doesn't really matter since this game (like FF11 on the PS2 and Xbox) will be shared servers. PS3 and PC players will be all on the same server. So even if people flip-flop, the population will remain the same.

@23 thank you, someone understands.

Also just because it has a mouse in the screen shot doesnt mean its not the ps3 version, for all you know it couldve been a video they took a screenshot of, obviously being watched by a computer, or they couldve been coding the ps3 using a computer....which is also pretty obvious haha. many things could explain away a mouse.

I don't care about the negative comments. Those that say FFXIII/XIII-2 is shit probably just didn't know how to work with Paradigms and the Crystariums. If the new FF was a flop with it's current style of gameplay - then FFXIII/XIII-2 would have been flops - which were not.

As for FFXIV: ARR, as a massive FF fan I am going to give it a try as long as it is on the PS3. I am not really a PC gaming fan. I just hope that there won't be more than just an "online pass" and in-world goodies (like weapons and outfits) won't be more than just aesthetical upgrades rather than a money-hogging requirement.

Nonetheless, I'm waiting for Lightning's return in "FXIII-3"...

I enjoyed FF11, it was very tough but very fun. I didn't like the look of the original 14 and after it got slated i was glad i avoided it, but this looks fantastic and it appears they've realized their mistakes with the original 14. Sadly i don't really have the money to pay for a monthly subscription right now, but it would be fun to try it out!

I'll admit it looks a lot better than the Macro masher FF11 was. Can't see myself paying a monthly fee for it tho, especially if the end game ends up as rubbish as FF11's was and if they give RMT free reign to destroy the economy again.

FF14(2.0) looks a lot better now. Let's hope it is a great MMO for console.
