New Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn Render Brings Forth Gilgamesh

Gilgamesh is one of the most beloved characters in the Final Fantasy series, even more so because he appears in almost every numbered chapter, with varying roles ranging from a villain to a NPC or even a summon.

A few months ago we saw a piece of artwork showing his appearance in Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, but today we got something a lot more substantial: the actual render of the textured 3D model. You can check him out above.

Looks quite imposing, doesn’t he? Can’t say I’m not eager to cross swords (and gunhalberds, axes and maces, apparently) with him in the game. Luckily, the open beta is going to start soon (on August the 17th for everyone and on August the 16th for those that took part in the closed beta) to ease everyone’s withdrawals.

        The article is right. August 16th is for those that have been participating in closed beta so far. @Devin this phase coming (phase 4) IS open beta.

          Nah it was actually wrong. Didn’t sleep last night so I initially wrote “open beta” like Devin correctly quoted lol. It’s fixed now 😀

            I was under the impression that you never sleep, Giuseppe

          • Giuseppe Nelva

            Which is partly true 😀 Just replace “never” with “not very often” 😛

            Trying to upgrade to “never”, but it’s hard…

          • Mildra

            Is it one of those cases where the brain is always on overdrive and won’t let you sleep?

          • Giuseppe Nelva

            More or less, especially now. I got a couple editorials clashing with each other in my mind, and scored a rather relevant interview for tomorrow night, so it’s hard to turn it off 😀

            “I see” said the blind man to the deaf man.

          • Giuseppe Nelva

            lol 😀

          • Wasn’t trying to be a douche, just pointing it out.

          • Giuseppe Nelva

            Absolutely, thanks for that 😀

    The thing I remember especially about Gigamesh is how he was transformed into a tragic villain you could empathize with in Type-0. Magic.

    • Nihelus Aurenis

      The thing I remember about Type-0 is that I haven’t played it because SE doesn’t want my money. Really wish they’d port it to Vita to avoid the PSP hackers. =/

      • Vrrumdri

        I’m sure it’s coming. They do want to, it was just the PSP went downhill in the west at the wrong point. Who knows, if X HD and X-2 HD do well on the Vita, that could convince them. They are looking for opportunities like that. Cheer up, never give up hope.
