Looks amazing, looking forward to it.
Agreed..for the most part but lets not be blind. That grass (which is all we are talking about here) looks pretty terrible by even the standards of a few years ago.
Here is the Archylte Steppe from FFXIII-2 on PS3
And for comparison the grass from FFXIV 2.0 for PC.
The grass in FFXIII-2 was beautiful*, the grass in 2.0 is not.
*Disclaimer: Obviously this level of graphics is not really possible in an mmo but it does not appear they gave the grass much attention in 2.0
