I have not played the current version of FF XIV before but I have recently become interested in the new version of the game and I've been looking up stuff about the game. Below are my questions.

Is the game's story completely changing in the new version or restarting?
If the story isn't changing or restarting, is the new version of the game like an expansion of the story?
Should I read more about the story of the game before the new version comes out because I don't want to spoil it.

I ask these questions because I do not see any articles or infomation about what is going to happen to the game's story.

Answers are appreciated.

Man I want some answers myself, I have not played ffxiv but have been following the progress of the game by checking this forum for the past 2 years, I'm waiting for the ps3 version. My question is will 2.0 be more of a group play or you can solo all the way to the top? I like group play so this is important.

Well I've heard they want to make this game a competitive standard MMO and most MMOs today, like WOW and SWTOR, try to balance the group and solo play.

The main scenario is staying more or less the same, there are going to be quite a few changes to the cutscenes and the pacing, though. Certain scenes will make allusions to the Seventh Umbral Era meteor storyline.

The grand company questline will be completely new and restarted from scratch.

Kind of. It's a more-fleshed out version of what we had in 1.0. It will have more tutorials on how to play and get around, and more boss battles and not completable/soloable as the 1.0 version was.

You should read up on the Umbral Era if you want some background on the story. I made a blog post for people who want to catch up on what has been missed, but I imagine the storyline will be accessible in-game to those who are trying the game for the first time.

I didn't play FFXIV 1.0, either. So I was interested in keeping up on the lore as well. If you haven't already, check out the event recap thread. That will give a brief synopsis of the End of an Era video and a small taste of what's to come. Also, go to the official site for a more complete look at the history and lore of Eorzea and the events that lead up to this point.
