The ZAM team sent a total of 10 questions to Square Enix this morning. Of these 10, four are answered below.

>> Will current owners of the Square Enix Security Token be able to use the same token they use in FFXI to secure their FFXIV account?

Players who have already obtained a SQUARE ENIX Security Token and have been using an OTP for FINAL FANTASY XI will not need to purchase a new one, and will be able to use their current one for XIV.

>> Will Final Fantasy XIV be available on Direct2Drive at launch?

Because of the estimated size of the game, we are aiming for a package release. However, we are also considering distribution via download.

>> People were ecstatic to hear about the beta. Can you tell us anything about it? Will it be a closed or open beta?

We are planning both closed and open beta testing periods. The schedule is not yet decided.

>> You've confirmed that FFXIV will not be using PlayOnline. Will FFXI continue to be launched through PlayOnline or will it be done away with completely?

As long as FINAL FANTASY XI service continues, PlayOnline will continue.

For the rest of the questions we don’t have any comment at this time. Glad to see you guys excited about FINAL FANTASY XIV!

Read the story for the full list of questions asked.

So there is more info coming? That's nice. The more info we have the more I can build up FFXIV in my imagination of what it could be like.

LOL Jumping.

Now that we've established that Mithra are not Mithra, Galka are not Galka, etc. (my point being that the races will have different names and different histories, but same features) I want to know about the job system.

I hope they reveal info about job classes in the near future, they're cryptic "Building on the job system from ffxi but different" has me a bit apprehensive about what they are doing. Then again, the idea of it being casual and solo friendly means that it could add a lot of depth to classes like White Mage, Summoner (pre-bombs), and others that cannot traditionally solo well.

Anyway, I'm SUPER excited for this game, Now i need to save for a new PC or a new HDD for my ps3...

I'd like to see a question eventually regarding whether or not FFXIV will be able to take full advantage of say a quad-core CPU, I certainly hope so, I don't wanna have to upgrade my computer again ;;

It took more than six years for a male mithra to make any kind of entrance into FFXI, will players be able to play a male mithra character from the start? What was the original reasoning behind making Mithras a female only race?
Thanks for the male mithra question attempt Pikko and friends, even if it wasn't answered xD

I'm down on that jumping aspect too, its one of my biggest concerns with giving me more abilities to make combat more involved and more customization in character creation.
