Hello and welcome to the 29th edition of the Eorzea Examiner, ZAM’s column on Square Enix’s Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. For this week’s column, we’re going to be looking at FFXIV’s competition again. As many of you are aware, last month marked the release of World of Warcraft’s fifth expansion pack, Warlords of Draenor. Many have been claiming that this expansion is one of the best Blizzard Entertainment has ever released and the numbers support that: 3.3 million copies of the expansion sold on the first day, as well as bumping their subscriber count back above the 10 million player mark. Those are some fairly sizable numbers for a 10-year-old game, so they must be doing something right. Seeing as FFXIV is launching their first expansion, Heavensward, next year, it may be a good idea to take a look at WoD to see if anything can be learned from this successful expansion. Partly because it will help improve the game, but mostly because, barring any major shifts in the MMO landscape before Heavensward ships, this is the main competition.
Hello and welcome to the 28th edition of the Eorzea Examiner, ZAM’s column on Square Enix’s Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. For this week’s column, we’re going to dig into another one of the new features of the recently announced FFXIV expansion, Heavensward. Flight, new zones and increased level caps are all great features of the expansion, but the feature many players were focused on during all of the announcements was the addition of new jobs. So far we’ve just had the one reveal with the Dark Knight, but there’s something unique about this job: the Dark Knight is the first FFXIV job option without a base class. So what does this mean for the rest of the jobs Heavensward and any future expansions will bring us?
We'll be taking next Friday off to digest all that turkey, but settle back this week for a mega two-part edition of Film Friday. Coming up first are some great new videos from World of Warcraft, three different Final Fantasy games, DCUO and Mordheim City of the Damned!
Hello and welcome to the 27th edition of the Eorzea Examiner, ZAM’s column on Square Enix’s Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. For this week’s column, we’re going to dig into one of the new features of the recently announced FFXIV expansion, Heavensward. In addition to all of the new zones, the Dark Knight reveal and the promise of more new jobs to come, one feature in particular caught my attention: flying mounts. What does the addition of flying mounts mean for this expansion and beyond?
Hello and welcome to the 26th edition of the Eorzea Examiner, ZAM’s column on Square Enix’s Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. For this week’s column, we actually have news to talk about. At their Fan Festival event earlier this month, SE announced FFXIV's first expansion, Heavensward. Currently slated for a spring 2015 release, Heavensward will bring Eorzeans an increased level cap, new zones, additional Job options and more. Since we've got at least five months till that spring release window, let's take a look at what's been announced and what features we'd like to see in the expansion.
