One could only imagine what was going on through Bethesda's team when someone came up with the idea"Hey! Let's award one player $1 Million dollars to play our MMORPG!"
Nope. This isn't some elaborate scheme by me to get you to play The Elder Scrolls Online,
It's part of Bethesda's #AMillionReasonsToPlay contest.
How does one enter?
Fill out this form and buy yourself a $35 copy of The Elder Scrolls Online
Isn't this just a way for people to buy the game and possibly never touch it again?
Could it be? Yeah maybe (Anything to get subscribers I suppose)
Is it a good way to reel in potential players who may only play
just because Bethesda is hanging a carrot on a stick ($1 million)? (I'd say so)
But WAIT~! The rules say "No Purchase Necessary!"
Aye, it does, but it requires yo
Rhapsodies of Vana'diel is a three chapters-long scenario that contains appearances from all of the well-known main characters, and we're hoping that adventurers who are currently taking a break will Return Home to Vana'diel to see the magnificent ending.
All of the details on Rhapsodies of Vana'diel can be found on the Goddess's Gala official site.
The collaboration event, "A Journey to Remember," begins on November 11, and Eorzea will be visited by the main heroine of Rhapsodies of Vana'diel, Iroha.
Iroha has descended from the future whe
At the Tokyo Game Show, Square Enix showed off FFXIV using VR support.The VR support is to start off on the PS4 using Playstation VR.PC VR however is still a mystery, a video has surfaced via Destructoid
showing off Playstation VR with FFXIV on the PS4 and the primal boss Titan being used.
(Of course this fight was toned down and made impossible to die)
After a well deserved vacation, the development teamis back in office to show off aspects of 3.1.It's been confirmed that 3.1 will be quite late and that it's release will be November.The producer Yoshi-P, has confirmed in the last live letter, that FFXIV willget 2 new dungeons instead of 3, in replace for the 3rd will be casual content.
Starting off 3.1's update is the new 24 man raid, The Void Ark.The Void Ark's loot rul
It's not a new thing with F2P titles anymore that publishers throw out founders/patron packages
before the release of a new game to get early access into beta tests and more.
Now some of you might have seen this in your junk folder of your email if you've subscribed
to the newsletters regarding Blade and Soul's beta.
The founders packs start from $25 to $125
to gain things such as access to all betas, early access, titles and more.
There is also premium membership that is granted for buying the Disciple or Master Pack.
(Why not just make the game subscription based if people are going to pay for the complete experience anyway?)
Here's some brief info on what the Subscription Premium membership offers:
"What are Premium Points? What benefits do you get from them?
Hopefully in the land of Free To Play games, FFXIV will make it's mark, as it's hard for games with P2P models to last long.
(Unless you're NCSoft that is)
A trailer to promote FFXIV's launch on friday has been released as well.
Eyedentity Mobile and NVIDIA have also collaborated to promote FFXIV in Korea, with giveaways galore.
Players that purchase a 900 series GPU from NVIDIA will get in-game goodies.
FFXIV has also prepared over 2000 collector's editions for sale.
Players are feeling absolutely cheated by the announcement of this collector's edition.
But this situation is no different from the Archeage Founder's Pack fiasco of yesteryear.
I honestly thought that people would learn by now.
As quoted from some players:
"Are you freaking kidding me skyforge??? I bought the highest founders and now you give away classes for a collectors? GG mygames. Cheap move"
"Wow......you guys really screwed the pooch on this one....both my wife and I bought the most expensive founders pack you all had...not even cool."
"Really? REALLY? P2W so early and the game isn't even out of Open Beta..."
"First Archeage, now THIS SHIT, I am NEVER paying for a Founders Pack in a game again!"
Skyforge has immediately followed the foot steps of Archeage.
Suddenly following up
At Japan Expo, producer Naoki Yoshida gave the run downof FFXIV's subscriber base, with rather impressing numbers.Not including trial accounts or China's subscriber baseFinal Fantasy 14: A Realm Reborn (Now Heavensward) has become the 2nd mostpopular subscription based MMORPG behind World of Warcraft. The numbers come from only those who have at one time or another
paid the $12.99/$14.99 monthly fee making it a substantial feat.
In it's year and 9 months of service so far, FFXIV has had very impressive feats.
From it's inevitable shutdown in 2010, to being re-made and being the successful MMORPG
that it is today, no one can deny that the game has come a long way.
If FFXIV continues down the road, it just may beat World of Warcraft one day.
