Looking back at 10 years since Final Fantasy XIV 1.0 ended
ten Years ago, under a catastrophic rain of burning energy, Final Fantasy XIV Die. This is equally true in the sense that the land of Eorzea was filled with the great great light of one of the Final FantasyThe most powerful dragon, Bahamut Dragon, and developer Square Enix have shut down their troubled MMORPG servers for good.
The launch of the .. the launch of the .. the take off of the Final Fantasy XIV An unmitigated disaster, it almost made a hole in the studio behind him in the process. BEven with players gathering in cities and fields to look up at the sky waiting for Bahamut’s account, plans were underway to completely remake the MMORPG, and relaunch it. Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn—AGI’m with the complete opposite story of the original fourteenth. she was Wow it’s still going strong to this day, and most likely foreseeable future.
But what makes fourteenth The closure of version 1.0 is unforgettable – far from the success story it has become world reborn—Because this was more than just the end of a game and the beginning of another, a sad and quiet pause before a boastful restart. Final Fantasy XIVThe game’s heirs had time to plan the end of the original and pave the way for their new version, in doing so creating an epic definitive story for players to watch, one that continued to resonate throughout the decade. world rebornThe long story is over. Resolution is not just a shutter Final Fantasy XIV But to rebuild it into a completely new game, made the year before the 1.0 release that will eventually, and in time, its new product –Yoshida Naoki “Yoshi-P”who is still running and working on the current version of the game Final Fantasy XVI– Decided to retool the original story of 1.0 to tell the story of the apocalypse events.
thing about him Final Fantasy is that the end of the world happens all the time. Almost every entry in the history of the game franchise has addressed some kind of threat that potentially threatens the world, and its heroes have triumphed, because that’s what Final Fantasy Heroes do when they’re not summoning the gods or working on the drastic hair care routines required to look like Kain Highwind or Squall Leonheart.

1.0’s end is heralded by a small red moon—the artificial construct Dalamud, summoned by Final Fantasy XIV’s primary villains, the Garlean Empire, in an attempt to devastate the land of Eorzea before its forces swept in and seized the ashes for themselves. As players and the leaders of Eorzea rallied together to fight back against the Garleans, what started as a small red dot in the skies got bigger and clearer as, patch by patch, Final Fantasy XIV went to its end. Even when the story climaxed with the defeat of the Garlean commander, Nael van Darnus, at the players’ hands, they learned that it was a Pyrrhic victory: Dalamud would still fall, and the world would perish beneath it. In the final days and hours of the game, players took part in events to push back against the invading Garlean forces, thrown into disarray by their leader’s death, a sense of dread in the air—and the events kept going. Dalamud keep getting close. Until, in the last minutes, Dalamud’s fiery appearance burned into the sky with echoes of eerie, ethereal music, and Final Fantasy XIV Died with one last movie scene:
“End of Eorzea” is sixDelicate epic like almost nothing Final Fantasy XIV She watched Eorzea’s forces, heroes and grunts alike, clash with the Garleans. The true purpose of Dalamud is revealed – not a moon, but an ancient prison housing the great primordial dragon Bahamut.

but sure, Final Fantasy XIV It does not end forever. In the final moments, the leader of the Circle of Knowledge, Louiswick Levellor, leads the heroes away to survive the devastation brought on by Bahamut, so they can re-emerge in a new world in order to world reborn. But the legacy of version 1.0 as it happened didn’t just survive in the meta-gender premise that players persisted even after the world itself was decimated to Earth. The choice to rebuild Eorzea from the apocalypse is woven into a story of rebirth, and its consequences not only reverberate across world rebornbut every expansion of the game revived in the last nine years, as Final Fantasy XIV Unleash the Whirlwind Recovery Arc to make it one of the Crown Jewels of the Square Enix Library.
