Here Is Some Info About Final Fantasy XIV

Upcoming online role-playing Final Fantasy XIV will take place in a sci-fi meets fantasy universe. That we know. But that's not all.

According to recent Japanese game magazine articles, there's more. Much, much more. Website FFXIVCore.com has a long laundry list of all the nitty gritty, but here are some selected highlights:

• The PC version will be able to run on PCs from a few years ago, but the alpha version will only run on high-end PCs

• Can be run on 512MB of VRAM and above

• Alpha test starts soon

• Square wants to make it possible to play with your friends from FFXI

• Character customisation won't be fully available in beta (can't change facial features)

• There's a mode for restoring HP while moving

• The plan is the make the maximum number of members in a party between 6 and 8, and there will also be alliances

• The important things in battle are distance, range, and direction

• There will be magic you can use while moving

Apparently, FFXIV will have players fight on the move, and in battle, position is key.

Square Enix has included information about registering for the FFXIV beta in copies of Final Fantasy XIII's PS3 version. You register?

    Can someone tell me what is different to FF11 in this list?

    Isnt regen/regen 3 restoring hp while moving?
    red mages fast cast/2hour ability for casting on the move?
    Wasnt range, distance and direction already important factors in FF11?
    Let me guess, there will be up to 18 players per alliance(of 3 party's)?

    Hey, did you know you can play with your friends from FF11 if you buy FF11 instead of 14? O_o

      Uh this IS a Final Fantasy game.
      Their version of a new idea is more spiky haired characters partaking in more turn based combat using familiar moves against similar enemies so that even more numbers can fly everywhere enabling you can move onto a identical area.

        Thats besides the point.

        Does no one else see that this game is an EXACT copy of the previous game?
        I repeat... EXACT copy of the previous game.

        Even the races are the same?

        Let me guess..
        the elvaan looking characters live in some outpost castle type of setting.
        The big galka live/d as slaves in some baron waste land.
        The humans/humes live in some industry world(cheap industry world, not as developed as the elvaan)
        And the small race tarutarus live in some magic ability shrine/place.
