Art Comes to Life in Final Fantasy XIV’s Latest Trailer

The world Hydaelyn looks absolutely stunning. Square Enix shows us why their cinematics are second-to-none in their latest CGI trailer for Final Fantasy XIV.

“To help fulfill the expectations that players have come to have of a Final Fantasy world, one of the first things we take into account is a certain sense of reality” says Akihiko Yoshida, Art Director for Final Fantasy XIV, he adds:

For Example we have paid a great deal of attention to the effects that the passage of time or changes in weather have on how light is displayed”

As you watch the world of Eorzea unfold in the latest trailer, it’s hard to argue that Square Enix hasn’t achieved their goal.
