Check Out Final Fantasy XIV's New Race's Extensive Character Creation from the Heavensward Expansion

April 26, 2015

Today, during the second part of the Letter from the Producer Live broadcasted from the Nico Nico Chokaigi event in Chiba, near Tokyo, Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn Producer and Director Naoki Yoshida showcased the character customization of female and male Au Ra characters for about half a hour.

The Au Ra will be the new dragon-like race included in the Heavensward expansion, launching for PC, PS4, PS3 and Mac on June 23rd.

The full character customization is included in the expansion’s benchmark, that will be released tomorrow morning.

In the video below, recorded from the livestream (which means that unfortunately the quality isn’t the best, since it was on Nico Nico), you can check out the launcher of the benchmark itself, including the option to switch between DirectX 9 and 11, and quite a lot of character creation footage.

Hailing from sunny (not as much as people think) Italy and long standing gamer since the age of Mattel Intellivision and Sinclair ZX Spectrum. Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
