Final Fantasy XIV details revealed: No leveling, new job system, deep story

The latest edition of Famitsu Wave recently hit the newsstands in Japan,  with it comes a DVD which contains an 8-minute exposé on Square Enix’s second attempt at the MMO genre, Final Fantasy XIV. The whole video is posted after the break.  Here’s some of the juicy excerpts: The game features a reinvented character progression system which does not include experience points or leveling up.

The job system from XI will make an appearance, but in a extremly altered form, also a interview with the game’s director, Nobuaki Komoto, revealed that the game will place a focus on the weapons players use, explaining that your armaments will determine “the way you play” and “the way you grow.” Sounds kinda reminiscent of Final Fantasy IX

Furthermore, FFXIV producer Hiromichi Tanaka explained that the game takes place in a new region with a more “modern” feel to it, the mysterious Eorzea which was mentioned in the trailer. The new world features familiar race but with some new names, and plays host to a “deep story,” which is told through cut-scenes and quests.
