FFXIV: End of an Era Trailer

We pull into the closure of it all.

If you're just catching up, Final Fantasy XIV is offline. The long-reviled game is overhauling everything from the ground up, and Square-Enix was smart enough to make it a core part of the game. The recent storyline dealt with the Garlean Empire's conquest and warfare on Eorzea, and just after the servers went offline, this trailer was posted. 

Putting the entire revamp of a game - even one prompted by overwhelming negative feedback - into a storyline was a very good move. MMORPGs frequently lack in any meaningful change, and here was Square-Enix's perfect shot at making something players would remember. And they will - many showed up for when Mists of Pandaria launched, but how many can say, "I was there when the meteor fell in XIV"?

I dont know why, i havent played FF14 enough to know the whole story and i didnt enjoy it enough with its UI and all. But watching this made it me so emotional. Maybe because of how two natinons are warring even with the end upon them and the expressions of the main character with his allies that have been with him since long ago facing this crisis that is unavoidable. You can really feel the bond between his companions and the hope bestowed on them by the elders.
