Yesterday marked the end of the original version of Final Fantasy XIV Online. It is done. Over. However, the ending cinematic brings us to an introduction of the game re-boot. Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn goes into Alpha and hopefully will have a Beta phase sometime this winter. The original XIV released in 2010 and had a less-than-warm reception. Square Enix on two occasions released official apologies to the fan-base.
After replacing the majority of the FFXIV team the company proceeded with creating a re-boot of the game. The original version went out with a bang yesterday. Make sure to watch the cinematic below. Also, for more info on the game check out The Official Site.
