Square Enix Press ConferenceFollow

#1 Jun 03 2009 at 10:16 AM Rating: Excellent
The big Square Enix Press Conference is about to start and I'll be live blogging the event. They are only letting 75 members of the press into the press event so hopefully we'll get some amazing information for you. Stay tuned!!


[11:18] Get ready for infoz!

[11:28] We're still standing in line waiting to get in. Anyone have any predictions?

[11:37] *Speculation* They are late letting us into the press conference so obviously they've delayed FFXIV.... :(

[11:44] We're inside and sitting down, the press conference should begin shortly!

[11:54] It's begun, they are bringing out the speakers.

[11:55] Clarification about the confusion in regards to the exclusivity of Final Fantasy XIV - The game will be coming to the PS3 and the PC and they are still considering Microsoft products. Xbox 360 is not out of the question.

[11:56] Question: What are the ties to FFXI, if any? - Answer: The FFXIV world is completely different and even though the races look similar, they are completely different. They made them look similar so that players that enjoyed FFXI will be comfortable and can remake a similar character.

[12:00] They started developing FFXIV four years ago and plan to continue FFXI even after FFXIV launches. They have no plans to stop producing new content for FFXI, in fact they have new content in the pipe that they are working on for the next year.

[12:01] Question will FFXIV be similar to World of Warcraft - Answer: We will try to keep it more casual but our game will not attempt to copy World of Warcraft.

[12:05] Question: World wide release or staggered? - Answer: It will launch world wide for PC and PS3 and will be localized for four different languages.

[12:07] Question: How will you deal with the different game communities? (FFXI vs FFXIV) - Answer: We'd like to have players playing both games and not have to choose between one but they are leaving that up to the player.

[12:11] Question: Will the title be translated for the spanish community - Answer: *Seemingly sarcastic smirk from the panel* If there is a large group of people asking for it when the game launches, we will consider it.

[12:17] Question: The trailer that we saw yesterday had great quality, is that the quality we can expect in game? Answer: Some of that was cinematic but there was some in-game footage.

[12:21] Question: What are some of the highlights that you really want the player to understand? What are the major differences between FFXI and FFXIV? Answer: We will have the same kind of story telling but we want to expand on that so that characters develop in a more natural way. We also want to expand on the job system to make that different.

[12:22] They really want to make FFXIV so that it's not as much of a party game and more of a 'do what you want' game.

[12:24] Questions from ME: Beta schedule? Will you let FFXI current subscribers into beta? Answer: It's to early to talk about any of that.

[12:25] Question from ME: Any chance of characters from FFXI being ported over? Answer: No. Different world, different system, no character transfers. However, the character design is extremely similar so FFXI players will be able to create a very similar character. CONFIRMED zOMG

[12:26] Will not use PlayOnline for FFXIV but will keep your account info to make that easy.

[12:29] That's all folks! Full transcription from the Press Conference is coming soon!

I certainly hope this isn't just referring to mini expansions and WoG updates. Shouldn't another "proper expansion" be more than a year's worth of content?

I would have been shocked if they talked about the battle system. They just recently started talking about XIII's and only by showing us videos with it.

Lots of interesting stuff we're learning though. I'm most excited about worldwide servers... makes the night owl in me very happy. :D

Q: FFXI has evolved a lot over the years, especially in the areas of player accessibility and the ability to solo. Will you carry over features like level sync and other features to FFXIV?

A: Yes. All of the knowledge and experience we gained from FFXI will be used in the development of FFXIV. At the launch, we intend to have content for solo players as well as large-scale battles. We want a wide-variety from the start.


Sweet. ^^

I think that means more there already have plans what to do FFXI for 2010. It does not say what is beyond 2010. I guess it is wait and see, and I think a lot of decision making for FFXI and XIV will depends on new players and current FFXI players reaction when FFXIV get released.

I volunteer to join the beta effort >_>

Q: Will you try to move players from XI to XIV or will they be separate communities?

A: It's up to the community themselves. We envision users that will hopefully play XI one day and XIV another. They will be independent, but users are free to play both.
