SE has added the new trailer they were talking about releasing at E3 to their website. This is a different trailer then the one shown at the E3 Sony conference (It does have some of the same material). I will post the link below for the FFXIV website. It is listed under media.

Is this the '3 minute' one they were showing tonight/tomorrow? Or a separate shorter one from that?

They're actually horns. You can see him in another frame with regular ears. Go to the other thread about this to see the screenshots of it. They are definately horns.

By far this is the best trailer they have released yet imo. I saw the puppet master puppets in there, Wonder if we will have a class that can use those or if they are just eye candy for the trailer.

He seems to just have horns, no other animalistic features.

Edit: Spotted Titan too =]

They are listed under the bestiary as enemies so I think we will be fighting them.

So... Summoner class? At 1:55 a Roegadyn sticks a staff into the ground and it turns red. Later at 2:02 Ifrit comes out of the ground and you can see the same character standing there with the horned staff.

That was a beastman guy, not a Roegadyn :/

I for one definitely hope that gardening comes back in some form. It was like a little christmas tree in my MH :)

At one point it shows a glowing sorta pinkish horned humanoid. This reminded me of Terra from FF6 in Esper form!? Maybe a powered up version or transformed version of the kid with horns? I also liked how I could see the hooped earrings on that one taru. I hope that wasn't just for the trailer. Anyways, loved the new trailer, and can't wait for more details about the game.

That pinkish horned humanoid seems really similar to the creatures that serve to mark the elements on the In Action of Conqueror on the official site. They serve as the Elemental mobs in this game. I'd imagine that one in particular is a fire elemental, given the huge pillar of flame behind it.

Horn-boy seem like a different race to me. Proportionally too normal to be a lalafell, ears too human to be elezen, ears not human enough to be a hyur. Not to mention there's no real discernible strap or cap to support the idea of horns as an accessory. Although this particular specimen is without a doubt a storyline character. The way his introductory shot was framed pretty much gives that away.

But just to be completely perplexing, he's not the original horned-boy character from the official site's mural concept art that originally spawned speculation of Gria. That would a long blonde haired, black eyed little chap wearing a different outfit. So while that doesn't imply it's a playable race, it's very likely there's more than one of these things.

Another interesting thing to note.
Possible Seedseer?

He is surrounded by a uniformed contingent of Lancers, which bears a resemblance to Gridania's militant force - the WoodWailers. Seedseers are described as: "young oracles who guide the nation based on the will of the forest's elementals". Horn-boy is A) Young, B) oracle-like insomuch that he carries a staff, and C) is important enough to be flanked on all sides by no less than 6 guards. Then there is the thematic visual connection of the Horns - Both the Elementals and Horn-boy seem to have Horns, and it is the duty of the Seedseers is to commune with elementals.

I'm with you on this point. This is, so far, the most sound opinion I've seen for what this chap may be :)

I've been reading the various sites looking at opinions of the boy in question, and if anyone else has thought of it, I missed it. I think it's a real clever idea though. Even if it doesn't pan out, kudos to you for some nice thinking!

All I'm willing to consider is he's a boy with horns, probably a new race considering the artwork with another one but not necessarily playable. Anything else delves into too much guesswork.

There's a closeup screenshot floating around one of the threads here where you can see he has pointy ears (aka Spock-like) with horns above. He appears to be another plot character similar to the guy with the eye patch flanked by the black hulking beastmen guys.

Fair enough. Then again, most everything we talk about at this point ends up as guess work :P

Someone put's a gun to my head, and I'd go with the Seedseer idea Zemzelette proposed. Fits so nicely, and whatever this kid is, it seems obvious he's of some importance to both the world (with all his guards) and the story.

For all you game soundtrack enthusiasts out there, that string solo that opens the new trailer is 2D (obviously the official name is unknown) from the not-so-official soundtrack leak. Very pretty piece. One of my faves Smiley: cool



*edit*

PS, what's a Gria?

I highly doubt this is an indication of a new playable race, at least not at launch.

Unless there are some other discernible characteristics (or I'm missing something here), I don't see the point of adding a race that's only different from Hyur by nature of a set of horns. Just doesn't seem likely to me.

Strange that the horned boy is the only one of that group shot to not be wearing a mask.

In case you're not being facetious and actually don't know, a Gria is a race introduced in FFTA2 that had horns, a tail, wings and was female only.

I would be extremely surprised if SE were to announce a 6th race this late in development; especially a race that did not exist in Alpha.

NDA or not, I'd imagine that if it were in Alpha, someone would have leaked it by now.

Granted I said "I would be extremely surprised", not "It's impossible". Perhaps it's an unplayable race, or just a unique character (Lion, Prishe, etc).

I doubt they will add a 6th 'race' into the game at launch too, but the lack of a sixth race in alpha is not very telling... if it was we wouldn't have mi'qote, male elezen, female hyurs, and male highlanders lol. Alpha races are actually limited currently.

Also it seems that 'horned' boy is in the beta testing going on right now on the E3 show floor, he is in fact an NPC and an elemental in human form like someone hypothesized.
