FFXIV Producer Released A New Letter to Deliver Beta News
ByDate: 01-23-2013 Views:
Naoki Yoshida, the Producer and Director of Final Fantasy XIV (FFXIV) has dispatched a new letter to deliver some beta news, screenshots and hopes of good fortune for the year. In his letter, he firstly discussed the upcoming closed beta which is set to open next month. And then he revealed a few new screenshots of the new title screen for A Realm Reborn and the character creation system. According to his letter, all races will be available during the first phase of beta, but some of the customizations will be limited until later.
Although all races will be available from phase one of the beta test, not all customization options will be available. We're putting a lot of work into various options such as hair styles and colors (a whopping 192 shades are being planned!) based on feedback from the alpha test, and everything should be ready by phase three.
Yoshida also posted a few images of his trip to a temple to draw an omikuji, a strip of paper with fortunes on them. While Yoshida didn’t draw the best fortune in the batch, he did receive a small blessing, which is a sign of good luck. So maybe that will mean good things to superstitious FFXIV players. More detailed information in Naoki Yoshida's letter.
