Final Fantasy XIV will be remembered as one of the biggest disasters in gaming history. It may also be remembered as a miraculous turnaround as well thanks to Square Enix owning up to its mistakes and completely reworking the game for a relaunch later this year.
If you're interested in the reworked Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, you'll want to check out Square Enix's latest video tour series. It's a fascinating look at the different areas that make up the world of Eorzea. You also get to see the difference in visuals between the PC and PlayStation 3 versions of the title.
If there's one thing that can be said, it's that Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn is quite the looker. The original game wasn't ugly by any means, but the title looks noticeably better than before. The new music is also sounding very nice. In the end, it looks like Square Enix has truly went above and beyond to make sure that Final Fantasy XIV will be remembered as an exceptional, if a little derivative, MMO instead of as a joke.
Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn is scheduled to launch on August 27 for PC and PlayStation 3.
