End of free to play and a roadmap for Final Fantasy XIV

14 Oct

Gee… This month is really becoming a bad month for me to be in an isolationist mood. First Final Fantasy XIV had a major patch, then Fallen Earth goes Free to Play plus a few other significant patches before that. Now it is back to Final Fantasy XIV again shaking my MMORPG world.

Anyway, as announced in the Lodestone, the official Final Fantasy XIV community site, Final Fantasy XIV will end it is free to play period between late November and somewhere in December of this year. They also released the roadmap for next year, which they are calling Final Fantasy XIV 2.0. The concept artwork and planned features (player housing!) looks cool. However those things are like dreams. They are perfect as that but you only find out they are really worth it when they are transformed into reality. And reality is much more complex.

The release of the PS3 was also announced. It will be between October and December of 2012 with a second free trial being offered by then.

What all this means to me is that I will have to find a way to break out of my isolationist mood and start digging deep into Final Fantasy XIV. I want to make sure that by the time they start billing for the game I know if I want to stick around for the long haul or not.

Urgh… Some times life really can be a pain. Even with simple things like games.
