Square Shows Off New FF XIV: A Realm Reborn Screens!

Recently some screenshots and concept art were released for Square Enix’s upcoming title, Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, opening up a new can of excitement for their fans everywhere. The screenshots are showing three of the games races that will be in Eorzea, a region on the games planet of Hydaelyn!


The concept art reveals some new areas and monsters for the game, while the screenshots, show us the juicy stuff like gameplay elements in battle as well as landmarks.




Below you can read about the three races (Elezen, Lalafell, and Roegadyn) and see the distinct physical as well as cultural differences between them.

The Elezen are a characteristically tall people, long of limb and slender of build. They once claimed sole dominion over Eorzea, and developed a heightened sense of honor and pride. In years past, the Hyur migration into Elezen lands sparked bitter conflict. At present, however, the mutual understanding reached between the two races allows them to work towards mutual peace and prosperity.


The Lalafell are both rotund and diminutive. Small by any race’s standards and possessing a childlike countenance, a Lalafell’s true age is difficult to gauge with any degree of accuracy. Originally an agricultural people inhabiting the fertile islands of the south seas, they found their way to Eorzea via the burgeoning trade routes. Lalafell are welcoming of outsiders, and share prosperous relations with all of the other races of Eorzea.


The Roegadyn are easily identified by their massive, muscular frames. They are descended from a maritime people that roamed the northern seas, though many of their ancestors turned their longships south to brave the crossing into Eorzean waters. Often considered a barbaric race, the fiercely competitive Roegadyn are also known for their compassion and unswerving loyalty. Many of the greatest warriors in history were born of Roegadyn stock.


Square Enix has never failed to give us depth in races on any game they have ever created so this isn’t surprising news, but it isn’t exciting to actually see what they have in store for us. I’m hoping that maybe we’ll get some videos to accompany these shots so that we can get a better feel of each race’s gameplay differences.



Stay tuned because when Square does send more info, we will have it here for you to check out!
