Kotaku - How Different Will Final Fantasy XIV Version 2.0 Be?

The original Final Fantasy XIV was a total bust. FFXIV Version 2.0 promises to be better. Much better.

I sure wish they succeed with fixing the game.

If everything they want to do happens in the time frame they have set for themselves I see a bright future for the game.

Basically 2.0 is a from the ground rebuild. All the zones are being redo(to address the copy and paste nature of the current maps), It will be on a new graphics engine. A new main story will come into focus. Entire new systems such as PvP will be added. The UI is being redo from the ground up to help accommodate KB and mouse users.

Various things they have planned will very much have the Final Fantasy feel such as the ability to take on more of the Primals(summons in FFXIV's word) and it seems players who form free companies will be able to summon said Primals after they defeat them. It also seems as if they are going to have a pet system and it almost sounds like everyone will be able to use pets. I mean I could keep talking for hours about what they are doing to it. The PDF's they released to the public with the road map and plans where massive I would highly suggest going to the lodestone and checking them out if you have even a slight interest in the game and what 2.0 is going to be.

PS3 version is scheduled for early 2013, late 2012 for 2.0 to hit PC. Yea it sucks, but this is a major overhaul. All the zones are being redesigned - they're redoing the graphics engine even.

Still playing this game. After 1.19 this game is playable and Ifrit battle is cool. They are adding 4 new classes and is revamping the magic system in 1.20. Can't wait :D

They're remaking the whole game?
That's what was needed but I didn't think they'd actually do it, props to the new team.
