The lights are on
Final Fantasy XIV had some problems following release, and then it was shut down. Square Enix is preparing to re-launch the world of Eorzea on August 27, and the company is doling out bonus content for those who preorder and/or pick up the collector's edition.
The collector's edition is full of cool extras, like exclusive boxart, an art book, and a CD of music from the game. It also comes with in-game extras like a behemoth pet and a coeurl mount. For pre-ordering either edition, you get early access to the new version of the game, along with a Cait Sith pet and a moogle-themed hat.

awwww yea! ^^
Yay, can't wait, I love FFXIV!
Squaresoft... err... Square Enix complains that not enough people bought Tomb Raider to make it money, yet they rerelease this game that didn't fair well the first time and wonder why they're struggling to survive? Not hating on Square, just hating on their japanese decisions... Just release Kingdom Hearts 3.
Even after that disaster of a launch I'm still interested in this game. However, I'm taking a wait and see approach. It'll have to get a lot of good reviews before I dive back in.
This game is looking really good, and I'm super excited to see all the awesome changes they did. The UI is completely redesigned. People should really do their homework before shunning and trolling a game they've only heard about or played 1.0. Ready for my FFXI nostalgia to kick back up with the new classes!
I actually hope this succeeds, been wanting to play it on the PS3.
This is still a thing? Wow...just wow
I'm all for it. Didn't get the first for obvious reasons but judging from the beta, its shaping up to be really great.
As for those inevitable comments that will be somewhere along the lines of "why you supporting them releasing a failed game and enabling their bad habits". Well I'm not supporting their bad habits I'm supporting good ones. This is a completely new game and much better than the first disaster. If I don't support them when they admit to their mistakes and go out of their way to make up for them to this extend (something no other company has done before as far as I know), then they truly won't learn from their mistakes.
Why is it so important to this company that this steaming pile of manure be accepted?
