Final Fantasy XIV Official Release Opening Cinematic

If you’ve been waiting patiently for Square-Enix’s next MMO to arrive, the wait is almost over. The official launch happens in just over two weeks. Today the RPG giant released a new and rather lengthy launch trailer for the title. The trailer is almost exclusively in CGI, but hey, it looks absolutely amazing. Although, I have not a clue in hell as to what is going on in this trailer – the dude looks at a card, starts dreaming about some crazy events that aren’t explained, then snaps back to reality. Come to think of it, what is the story of FFXIV anyway?

FFXIV is currently in the final stages of testing, being in open beta for only a few more days. Next week the servers open up to those who pre-ordered the Collector’s Edition of the title and, finally, on September 30th the game launches officially and begins its quest of world domination. Oh, wait, that’s World of Warcraft. Sorry, my bad. Hit the jump for the 7+ minute trailer.
