I've heard of Rapture for many years now and recently this was announced to be FFXIV. The first image is known from the SE test video that many of you have seen. Although there are some other pics that i have not seen before. Looks alot like FFXII characters on chocobos. This is just a post to show you guys.

My theory is that its most likely test pictures of the engine itself. Although it would amaze me if the final product looks like that.

note the blog is from almost a year ago. so information has changed over time.

took out pics

Those pictures were part of an april fools joke and as such are fake.

Wasn't it discovered that the shots of the Viera and Moogle were actually doctored pictures from FFXII? My memory's a bit hazy on that.

I hope the graphics look better than the other screenshot, though. It looks like something from FFX, rather than FFXIV.

The main post was not only the pics but that rapture was heard of prior to the announcement, thank you for telling me though that they were doctored. I'm just looking up as much info about FFXIV without only relying on speculation.

Rate up for helping the community. There's probably a lot of crap out there in relation to this game.

Those are actually from an April Fool's joke we ran here. We got them from someone who made them and then ran it with the Hello Kitty skin.

hehe thx pikko. Being that this game is a year ago... If I heard of FFXIV last year I would have probably gone crazy by now. Good joke btw, any news of FFXIV would have fooled me.

A web site built on 100% speculation. SE should be proud of their franchise. I can't believe I check this site six times a day. Isn't it strange with less than one year till the supposed release date and we have no details at all?

This is an actual news site blog regarding the Rapture project although it hasn't been updated since March and thus doesn't have the news that its now FFXIV :P

http://squaremmo.blogspot.com/

Nothing but news regarding the project and zero speculation. Its also where I got that picture from GDC last year that confirmed the tech demo from E3 2005 WAS FFXIV early concept.

Edit: they also had a bunch of articles from the past where I suppose they did "speculate" on whether it would be the project. Kind a nice flash from the past though when a bunch of stuff surfaced.

Low standards! Those are PS2-level graphics (literally -- those are FFXI's chocobo models and I presume FFXII's character models) slapped on some fairly low-poly backgrounds with a heavy bloom filter thrown over top. FFXIV will look much, much better.
