In a blog entry authored by Ben Bateman today, Square Enix’s latest entry in the Final Fantasy series was revealed to be released on August 27th of this year for both the PS3 and PC. Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn is an online game where you can choose to either venture on your own or with a group of comrades in a realm named Eorzea. The player’s adventure takes place after the Garlean Empire launched attacks on the realm.
Bateman also revealed that Square Enix is providing perks to fans who pre-order the game. These perks include early access to the game’s online servers prior to August 27th, the addition of Cait Sith to the player’s party as a non-combatant, and a Moogle cap. The Collector’s Edition of the game includes an 80-page artbook featuring concept art, an album comprised of music from Final Fantasy XIV, five art cards featuring some of the game’s characters, a video disc detailing the events prior to the rebirth of Eorzea, and some bonus items to be provided in-game. More information will be provided at this year’s E3 conference, where Square Enix is expected to reveal a trailer and details about the battle system for Final Fantasy XIV.
