So uhhh, I'm not going to post the pictures here because of their maybe NSFWish nature, but SE has updated the developers blog with early development pictures of a certain icy summon

Also, screenshots of how night looks in game:

Yup, google lodestone FFXIV or go to the blog I linked and use the links there. Maybe they changed them, but that's the link I know people have used.

Unsubstantiated rumor from a JP site that it would be 2/12; I would just circle 2/15 and give it 3-4 days range to either side.

Yea, I think next week at the earliest, 20th at the latest. Would be nice for it to happen the week I have off of university though!

I know this topic hasn't been updated in awhile, but it will be the hub of everything once Beta starts (well, as much as I can post until the NDA is lifted). I hope to put in server info and stuff as well as creating a list of everyone coming to play with us on Gungnir

Beta is in four phases, so don't fret. Eventually everyone will get in I'm sure. Invites havent gone out yet either.

Are you legacy? Cause that's why if so. Also, your ps3 account and pc account can be the same characters and stuff, I'm just not sure if they will allow you to download the ps3 client with a PC beta account.

Will post where we should all head server wise once they go up

The XIV official forums are the biggest trainwreck since the D3 official forums. It is non-stop /panic in there about everything from the rendering of the grass to griping over not getting legacy despite clearly not meeting legacy criteria.

Got my beta invite this morning; I have not seen a single non-legacy player get an invite yet, so I wouldn't be too bummed if you haven't received one. Caveat is that I have not checked the beta forums since I woke up this morning at like 6:30; perhaps some non-legacy people were tabbed.

I will be on whatever server the rest of my guild is on; I'll update when options are released and a decision is made.

Yep I am legacy. I just don't think the PC beta invite matters regarding PS3 down the road. Not gonna use this beta code.

Benchmark today! Be prepared to test your PCs

New stuff:
Video from the benchmark (don't spoil it for yourself!)


World Tour:


New Info:
- More vanity pets
- A city reputation system like FFXI
- New materia system
- Mobile app for iOS and Android that allow you to quickly look up maps and cooking recipes and such
- Personal chocobos that can then join your party with your friends to help fight for you
- Chocobo works similar to FF12's gambit system, and can have jobs or roles
- Chocobo vs. chocobo PVP!
- Chocobo's roles determined by the costume it wears
- PVP: Arena type combat for organized groups and battleground style PVP for nation vs. nation, no open world ganking
- Exclusive armor for PVPers
- FATE system ensures large open world battles against foes, instead of FFXI's HNM system
- Housing is coming three months after launch, both player and guild.
- Arcanist is a buff and debuff class

More stuff:
- Golden Saucer confirmed post launch
- Classic characters like Gilgamesh, Cait Sith and Cloud of Darkness will be in A Realm Reborn

Story details:
1. In this arc, the consciousness of the planet has formed into the Mother Crystal whom then speaks to the players. This is the storyline that will stretch throughout the entirety of the new FINAL FANTASY XIV.

2. Grand Companies vs the Garlean Empire. Yoshida noted that for this arc, an important keyword is “Warriors of Light”.

3. The Primals, which feed on the life force of the planet have grown in both strength and influence since the appearance of Bahamut.

Benchmark out! Test your PCs!

What the scores mean:
[7000-]
Extremely High Performance - Easily capable of running the game on the highest settings.
[5000-6999]
Very High Performance - Easily capable of running the game. Should perform exceptionally well, even at higher resolutions.
[3500-4999]
High Performance - Easily capable of running the game. Should perform well, even at higher resolutions.
[2500-3499]
Fairly High Performance - Capable of running the game on default settings. Consider switching to a higher resolution depending on performance.
[2000-2499]
Standard Performance - Capable of running the game on default settings.
[1500-1999]
Slightly Low Performance – Changes to Settings Recommended Capable of running the game, but will experience slowdown. Adjusting settings may improve performance.
[1000-1499]
Low Performance – Changes to Settings Required Capable of running the game, but will experience considerable slowdown. Adjusting settings is unlikely to improve performance.
[Under1000]
Insufficient Performance - Does not meet specifications for running the game.

Even if you have no interest in playing FF14, try the benchmark! It's a pretty good test of PC power
