Don't tempt me, Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn! I've just escaped your tendrils in order to focus on the bevy of holiday releases, but here you are pulling me back in with Patch 2.1 "A Realm Awoken." I must resist! Oh dear, what's this you have here? A 10-minute trailer showcasing the two new dungeons, new housing features, and the handful of new "Extreme" difficulty primal encounters? You win this round.
Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn's "A Realm Awoken" patch won't be released until December 17, but fans of the MMO are already biting at the bit to get their hands on it. It's no wonder either, because it's full of great new content -- though some of it is being recycled from the MMO's original failed launch. There's plenty for everyone, and the 10-minute trailer below doesn't even showcase everything that will be changing.
Pick up the MMO for ridiculous prices this holiday season. Considering Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn is almost certainly the best MMO release of 2014 and the holiday break is coming up for a lot of young gamers, I tell you -- give in. It's one of the best Final Fantasy experiences released in a decade.
