From the trailer the game seems to be set in medieval times, but parts of it seem like its semi-furturistic. However do you think FFXIV will be like FFXI in the terms of gear? Gear such as armor weapons and technology? It would personally ruin it for me if there were many types of pistols and guns and what not.


Also, lets have some guesses on when we will get some more information about the game. Personally, I'm hoping we get some juicy info way before TGS, but I feel its unlikely.

Final Fantasy time ^^ they always mix the best of the past present future :D No but I think it's like around 600AD kinda time frame. Only in a different world, so it could be 2020 there :/

i don't know, just about every FF game mixes futuristic tech style with an ancient/midevil style. this is a staple in the series. its never one way or another.

I don't think it would be too far into the future of current Vanadiel to compare. The most tech-related stuff was the pretty big airship in the scene where the flying towers were shooting stuff. Those had wings on them too. I doubt it will be too tech related.

All Final Fantasy games have a mix of ancient, medieval, Renaissance, and fantastic technological elements. The only rare thing so far has been Victorian industrial themes, which only really showed up in FF9.

It isn't set in Vana'diel. It's set on an entirely new world, Eorzea.

It looks like it'll have a bit more tech-looking ships than Vana'diel has, but for the most part it looks like typical Final Fantasy medieval with a slashing of sci-fi. Typical fare.
