Hello again to all of you eagerly awaiting FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn. I know I haven't been pumping out letters as often as I used to, but we've all been working feverishly in preparation for phase 3 of the beta test. Nevertheless, I couldn't let another day go by without bringing you the forty-fifth Letter from the Producer!

We recently attended the Niconico Chokaigi 2 event here in Japan, and I'd like to give a big thanks to everyone who showed up in person, as well as all of you who tuned in from afar. After traveling overseas to events last year like E3, Japan Expo, and Gamescom, it was nice to finally have one here at home. In case you haven't heard through the grapevine yet, we made two important announcements at the event, which I'd like to go over in this letter.

First and foremost, FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn will be released in summer 2013. It will be a worldwide release for the PC and PlayStation 3, available in Japanese, English, French, and German. At the end of the month we'll announce the release date, along with pricing and details on the collector's edition. We'll also start accepting preorders at the end of the month.

Our second important announcement was that phase 3 will start at the beginning of June. Phase 3 will include a multitude of changes based on feedback from the first and second phases, as well as the long-awaited commencement of PlayStation 3 testing. But that's not all—we're also adding Ul'dah and Limsa Lominsa, nearly one hundred new FATE encounters, four additional dungeons, main scenario quests up to level 20, grand companies, provisioning missions, free companies; we're making revisions to the battle system, testing the transfer of characters from version 1.0—the list goes on and on. I've been working around the clock, double and triple checking everything along the way, so sit tight and phase 3 will be here before you know it!

It's not just me though—the whole team has been working at full throttle to ensure the game will be ready for a summer release. It won't be long before you can mark your calendars and begin the final countdown!

With phase 2 of the beta test now at an end, I know our beta testers are feeling a bit anxious waiting for phase 3. If the forums are any indication, a good number of you seem to be going through withdrawal, which is a good thing...I think. Anywho, since you all still have a while to wait until phase 3, I found a little something that might help tide you over.

Well, that's all I can give you for now. I'll see you all next time in my seventh LIVE letter. And not long after that, I'll be headed to E3. If you're in America, make sure to drop by!!

Not long now before the 20th or so. Glad to hear from Yoshi again. I'm wondering if the beta will begin the weekend right before E3 so that there will be booths available for testing at the event.

Gotta admit, I'm pretty excited for this still, and the producers letters are helping me get even more hyped.

It looks like they might be able to pull off something good with the re-release.

Good to see there's so much content to explore early on.

I can't wait to see what is in the CE. The first one was really... Disappointing. I've bought CE's for games I no longer play but felt they were justified because there was really cool stuff in them. FFXIV 1.0's didn't really have much of anything.

I'd like to see a much better CE this time around.

Yeah... and I can't NOT get AC as it's my girlfriends birthday present with the special edition 3DS. Which means I will inevitably have to steal it from her and play it.

As much as he trolls has a point. SE says one thing when they mean another. "Soon after E3 and weekly updates after gamescom" never came to be. While you can consider "soon" as anything, let's be real, that wasn't "soon" by most definitions of the word lol.

But what did he say? I can't even noodle out what that sentence means. I wasn't even teasing him, I don't know what he (or you actually) are referring to.

Ok so I got no f'ng clue on some of the post you guys put down. So what I did come away with is:

Nothings changed in the last 2 weeks. other then this confirms it.

in reference to Ostia's post: don't give your hopes up with anything he said.

Cool screen shots but I must admit I liked the FB site screen shots better he really could of given us a smidgen more.

But at least hes not deviating from the "time line" by much.

that sounds like a LOT for a beta... what new things (i.e stuff we DIDNT already see/experience in the beta) will we have to look forward too when the game launches on day one?

also how will they announce the release date at the end of the month when beta phase 3 wouldnt have officially started yet and the beta could very well be expanded/have more bugs to fix which could delay the release date?

Well, storyline quests are only going to level 20. They are only adding in 4 more dungeons so there will still be a bunch more on release, as well as Crystal Tower and Bahamut's Maze. I'm guessing they still won't have the primal battles or AF questlines in the beta. They will probably have even more FATEs (including endgame style FATES I would guess). Also all individual class storylines to 50 as well. Hmm, what else... probably more fleshed out Grand Companies, the housing system, PvP and the Colliseum, Arcanist/Summoner, etc. Don't worry, there should still be plenty more coming for release.

The target release date is most likely tentative and subject to change at any time.

Meanwhile you refuse to acknowledge that it didn't happen when Yoshida said it would. It was eventually released, but it wasn't the "flood" of info, it was mostly reiteration of info we've had before.

But that was last year, past is the past.

I really like how this is shaping up! Initially I was very concened about the big gap between phases, but after seeing everything that's going to be added in I can see why it would take a little extra time.

I'm also really glad he brought up PS3 again. I know he's mentioned it several times already, but it's like if I don't keep seeing it, I get really nervous that it won't happen. I'm hoping the PS3 collector's edition has some neato stuffs.

Simple, some of the stuff released was simply info slipped in the live letters, while this was pretty much a Press release.

It was late summer, but it was summer when he started letting the info out. Here's the issue as things went down though.

His PR department told him that it was better to release a 'flood' of info than simply droplets. All they had really to present in E-3 was the TEASER trailer, not even the full End of an Era trailer. So, he waited until he had collected enough PR related info to do a live letter with, which he did, along with the relaunch of the new.

Also keep in mind that some of the info released was regarding End of an Era, not the trailer, but the circumstances of the end.

Now, a flood up to your ankles is still a flood, and September is still summer. But neither of these were satisfactory to a lot of people. That was all hushed when the End of an Era Trailer was released. Only ones still citing 'the flood' as a negative are those who've been and will continue to be consistently negative even after the game has successfully launched.

It made for a decent press release. I wasn't all that happy myself, but I saw the purpose for it. Next time it would be better for them not to quote the PR guys exactly.

Edit:

as far as him riposting 'current' info: He said it himself - not everyone was there or was following it.

Some people only read the forum. Some follow some other forums. Others read gaming websites. Others still will read all of the above.

I see nothing wrong with bringing a general consensus post to the official forum so that there is no mis-information. Now we know, from the horse's mouth, what is goin on for real, not what some journalist said.

You forget, that at that time, nobody cared about end of an era trailer, it was not hushed, we wanted GAMEPLAY video, and we had to leak it ourself because SE where to much of a scary cat to put themselves the video Smiley: lol Also most of the information, was information and screenshots that we already had 6 months prior to the annoucement of the "Flood"... All the flood was, was 3 interviews repeated over and over. Is it information ? Yes, is it a FLOOD ? Not really.

Never confuse your inference as the listener for an implication of the speaker.

Good games are subjective like good food is subjective. You're not going to seriously tell me that there's not a psychological basis for why pizza is great and lutefisk is revolting. The thing about subjectivity is that, as subjects go, humans actually have a great deal in common.

Robert Graves suggests,[10] "The Chimera was, apparently, a calendar-symbol of the tripartite year, of which the seasonal emblems were lion, goat, and serpent."

While I live in Nebraska and definitely know my way around livestock, goats aren't terribly popular here. Mostly cattle and hogs. Nothing like a bacon cheeseburger to get the mouth watering.

You forget, that at that time, nobody cared about end of an era trailer, it was not hushed, we wanted GAMEPLAY video, and we had to leak it ourself because SE where to much of a scary cat to put themselves the video Smiley: lol Also most of the information, was information and screenshots that we already had 6 months prior to the annoucement of the "Flood"... All the flood was, was 3 interviews repeated over and over. Is it information ? Yes, is it a FLOOD ? Not really.


Actually it is a flood of information.. Just a flood of the same information over and over again! LOLz nah, I jest. I think we have to keep in mind that Yoshi says alot without being mindful of PR hence the red lazer they always have to use during the live letters to keep him from saying stuff. So although he plans to release a flood of information the PR say "Nuuuh!" Fact I think he as stated in several places he always has to appologize to the PR people because he lets things fly that arent supposed to be confirmed yet. SE has become incredibly strict when it comes to releasing information untill right on the heels of it happening.. Probably because of the infamous FFXIII Versus they let us know about but hasnt been released YET, tho they told u how many years ago? Lol, I think this caused them to be more **** tight about releasing information untill it is beyond more than certain that what they say is actually coming to pass. I could be wrong tho.. Sometimes SE does things just because that's what SE does(for no good reason at all).. lol..

On another note though.. Its kind of silly to complain about a flood of information not being what you expected.. Some people are just nitpicking to death everything SE does. I still think people are taking gaming way to seriously. if you have invested much into SE and they have done you wrong then just stop buying there stuff lol. If you like them then thats cool too. No reason for the heated debates and name calling etc I see in the different forums. I'm sure SE likes all the PR they can get the good bad and ugly LOL. As long as people are talking about them they love th light. Wait a min.. Kinda like a troll!??! SE is trolling us all! lol, kidding.

Why are people complaining about last year, when so much more info was released in recent months?

Because they are attempting to use it as an argumentative point that Yoshi will reneg on his promise and/or fail to deliver. They have a situation in which they weren't happy with him and point to it going "See! See here! He's bad because of this!" They want to scandalize something inconsequential in an attempt to invalidate something offered in promise.

Politics does this all the time, and apparently we're to the point in gaming that every game and developer is subject to the same level of over-reactive scrutiny.

True that! And man, I really wish I could say something that would be really, really funny! Hmm, how to do it without outwardly ******* anyone off...

"I agree! And, I think it's totally stupid that Yoshi-P is getting {????}'d over such a trivial thing from last year."
