Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, PC game
Set five years after the original Final Fantasy XIV, A Realm Reborn returns gamers to the planet Hydaelyn, where the Garlean empire is preparing for war, the native beasts are calling upon their gods, and the unstable realm of Eorzea prepares for another period of darkness. Players step into this turmoil as an adventurer, taking on quests for NPCs, exploring dungeons, battling beasts that roam the countryside, and joining groups of fellow gamers for new Full Active Time Events (FATE). These adventures not only help characters gain fame and fortune, but they may also help save the world.
When creating a unique character, gamers can once again choose from five different races: the humanoid Hyur; the cat-like Miqo’te, the diminutive Lalafell, the elfish Elezen, and the brawny Roegadyn. Characters can be further customized with four different classes (although only the Disciples of War and Magic are initially available) and a number of different jobs, such as Paladins, Monks, Summoners, and Dragoons. Players can then take their characters to a variety of unique locations, each offering different cultures, quests, allies, and potential threats.
A Realm Reborn offers most of the standard MMORPG features, including experience points, leveling, side quests, guilds, mounts, and a crafting system. In addition to all the single-player content, fans can take on a variety of multiplayer events, including instanced dungeons, small-scale Guildhests, and random FATE challenges.
