    Apparently generic Chinese MMO is the style they're going for this time. It's a PlayStation exclusive apart from PC (and presumably Xbox six months later).

    I can't think of many things I'd want to play less.

    Wow that looks fucking awful. Generic, boring, uninspired, half of it looks like FFXV assets.

    FF is really toilet these days.

    That looks like they outsourced a bunch of art to a Western team in a 2009-style desperate attempt to get more takeup abroad. Really, really not feeling it.

    Clearly going for the Game of Thrones vibe, about three or four years too late to hop on the train.

    Make that ten years by the time it's out of course.

    Heh, I actually thought this looked ok. Most appealing since X at least.

    Count me in too. Hopefully more like ffvii remake combat than ffxv, but I enjoyed xv enough to get the plat. XV was let down by the shite story imo.

    Naoki Yoshida is producer, it seems. Explains the heavy Western influence.

    Looks too much like medieval FF15 to me. And not being medieval was my favorite thing about FF15.

    Gonna keep an eye out though. After all, I liked FF15 more than most.

    @Malek86 ya see, being more grounded in fantasy is exactly what I wanted from the next main line ff!

    The world looks interesting but I'd much rather the combat looked more like FF7 Remake than this which was decidedly reminiscent of FFXV.

    Thought it looked alright. Happy with the setting but it remains to be seen if the story will be any good

    I was just happy to see it's being made by Creative Business Unit III. They're miles better than Creative Business Unit II and Creative Business Unit IV can just get fucked to be honest.

    If it's actually complete and makes a lick of sense, that'd be a start.

    The only so FF I didn't enjoy was xiii so I'm in. I read a thread on Twitter about who's involved and it could turn out great.

    I thought it looked great and then when you hear the team behind FF14 is involved, the writer of FF14 Heavensward is writing it and a designer of DMC5 is in charge of the combat? This could be very special, got the same feelings as hearing about the team up for Nier Automata. I'm saying this as someone who despised FF15.

    Why is it always about crystals, and where do these medieval knights get their emo haircuts and texturising clay from

    I couldn't tell you a single thing that happened in heavensward, I thought the whole story of 14 was mega dull. It's just callbacks and 'member berries. The whole of eorzea feels like a FF disneyland with no identity of its own (it's also hugely derived from FF11).

    I know it gets praised but I suspect it's because it's 'good for mmo's' as the standard is usually excrement.

    After I got to level 50 back in the day I just started mashing through every cutscene as it was mostly really boring. Can't remember 3.0 being any different.

    Cool dragoon cutscenes though.

    FFXV killed my interest in the series and I don't see much here to revive it. Combat looks similar, setting looks uninspired. Early days I suppose.

    Going to be funny in Japanese. Kuraivu rosufīrudo!

    Some of the artwork is stunning.
