Witness the finale of the war between the Grand Companies of Eorzea and the invading Garlean Empire in the new Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn trailer – “End of an Era.”
The nearly 6-minute trailer shows a Final Fantasy VII-esque “meteor” (it’s actually a moon/complicated machine launched into orbit eons ago…long story) coming down on the nation of Eorzea. Eorzean and Garlean forces fight it out, as an “Archon” tries to summon the power of the Twelve – Eorzea’s guardians – to stop the moon from crashing down on the planet. Little do they realize that this moon/machine is actually an ancient prison for Bahamut, who has now been freed from his orbital slumber to wreak havoc on the world below. The Archon creates a barrier to help protect Eorzea from Bahamut, but it may not be enough.
What do you think of the trailer? Will you be checking out the next chapter in Final Fantasy XIV?
