Over the weekend, Square Enix held an event that not only celebrated eight years of Final Fantasy XI, but held a "mysterious" Final Fantasy XIV event. How... mysterious.
According to website FFXIVCore, a teaser site FFXIV for March 11 is opening, and the game will have a beta (details are scant). On March 1, info for the FFXIV Alpha will be sent to players.
There was new gameplay footage shown as well.
Besides FFXIV, there was FFXI news: the level cap has been increased to 99, and Odin and Alexander will appear as Summons in FFXI.
