Final Fantasy XIV trailer hints at more action, less grinding

Considering Final Fantasy XIV is due to drop internationally by the end of the year, it’s surprising that official details about exactly how the MMORPG will play are still very limited. However, if this trailer is anything to go by, Square Enix is looking to take a more action-driven approach this time around, in stark contrast to the grind-tastic (and perhaps stale) gameplay of its online predecessor Final Fantasy XI.

The game world Eorzea looks pretty sweet too, a radical move from the bleak art style of Final Fantasy XI.

Final Fantasy XIV has been announced for PS3 and PC, with talks for the Xbox 360 version still underway.
