@Blaze: Wasn't expecting anything from FF14 since we just had fanfest...as for FF16.. Yoshida said they will show more of it once substantial progress is made and currently all projects at creative business unit 3 are 6 months behind due to the pandemic. Example: Endwalker was supposed to come out this month..moves to late November.
@tea: Trying to stay optimistic about origins..hopefully when the demo is fixed it'll dispell some worries or even take the feedback seriously.
As for the main character.. John... Square has some of the best artists and characters designers in the world on the payroll...and that boring generic design is what they came up with. They could have taken the elevator to floor 15 at Square HQ and borrowed Kazuya Takahashi (FF14,FF16, Bravely Default, ect character designer) from creative business unit for a week to design 1 for them. lol I'm sure Yoshida wouldnt have minded
@Phreak - TBH i was a bit disappointed with the SQE and their showing - the FF game and that other title, cant recall the name now, felt like old school ps2 game reveals like Chaos legion and the like. But it was early pre-alpha stuff so I'm sure they will polish them up
The veil between life and death is no more. With a single act of destruction, Sylvanas Windrunner has ripped open the way to the afterlife. Azeroth's staunchest defenders have been dragged into all-consuming darkness. An ancient force of death threatens to break its bonds and unravel reality.
Hidden realms of wonder and horror await any who would pass to the other side. The Shadowlands is home to an entire realm of the departed; it is a world between worlds whose delicate balance preserves life and death itself.
As one of Azeroth's greatest champions, you have been granted the power to cross over in body and soul. Now you must investigate a conspiracy to unmake the cosmos, and help Warcraft legends journey back... or fulfill their ultimate destiny.
NEW WORLD ~ THE SHADOWLANDS
What lies beyond the world you know? The Shadowlands, resting place for every mortal soul—virtuous or vile—that has ever lived. Journey through planes of torment and imprisonment to those of rebirth and eternal reward.
NEW PLAYER HUB ~ ORIBOS, THE ETERNAL CITY
Oribos is the arrival point for all souls who enter the Shadowlands. At this crossroads, the dead are judged by the impassive Arbiter before being sent to their final destinations, and Oribos’ denizens swap gossip and anima—soulstuff that serves as both power and currency.
NEW FEATURE ~ COVENANTS
Align yourself with one of four Covenants—mysterious sects, each with their own ambition for the Shadowlands—to restore balance to the hereafter.
INFINITE DUNGEON ~ TORGHAST, TOWER OF THE DAMNED
Once, the Jailer kept only the most dangerous souls in the cosmos confined in this eternal prison. Now, some of Azeroth’s greatest heroes are trapped here, and you’ll need to rescue them from the Jailer’s tower before he expends their very souls.
