    It is indeed! They'll do well to get 60fps out of that, but good work regardless as long as it doesn't drop under 30.

    It's looking like the PS4 is considerably more developer friendly than the PS3 was if it's able to handle a PC port this seamlessly. Definitely will give this a whirl when I get a PS4.

    Glamours and Gear Preview


    An adventurer's journey is a never-ending one, as they quest for greater spoils to better arm themselves against the dangers of Eorzea. Today's patch preview offers a peek at Gerolt's masterworks and the new Glamours system, allowing players to gain both the power they desire and a style to match.

    Gerolt's Masterworks

    A host of new gear will be available in patch 2.2, offering players the edge they need to overcome the new challenges that await them. Among that new gear are Gerolt's masterworks, a new set of gear obtainable through the exchange of Allagan tomestones of soldiery.



    Gerolt the Weaponsmith



    From blacksmithing to carpentry to weaving, all these arts and more were mastered by Gerolt, the renowned artisan whose name once echoed through the halls of every workshop in Eorzea.

    None could match his sense for form and function, his creations earning the acclaim of disciples of war and magic across the realm. All who sought the finest tools of their chosen profession had eyes only for those fashioned by his masterful hands.

    But alas, the master would lose himself to the thralls of liquor, his legend left to sink to the bottom of his drinking glass. As years passed, his extant creations grew all the more valuable for their rarity, artifacts highly sought by the wealthiest collectors in the realm. And yet in recent days, an ever-increasing number of arms seemingly forged by his hand have surfaced. Could this be a sign of Gerolt's return, or merely the work of a forger who would shamelessly exploit the master's name for his own ill gain?

    Rowena, the maven of munitions at Revenant's Toll, espouses that proof of an item's authenticity can be found in Gerolt's signature─the mark of Rhalgr, breaker of worlds─and indeed, the master's fervor for the god of destruction in his early years is widely known. Those who would possess true power would do well to seek those artifacts that bear this mark.

    Glamours

    By using Glamours, players can alter the appearance of gear to resemble other gear of similar form and function. All visible gear including main arms, shields, armor, earrings, and rings can be altered.



    Quest Requirements

    To unlock Glamours, players must first complete the following quest. Upon completion, the action Cast Glamour will appear under General Actions in the Actions and Traits interface.

    Quest Name A Self-improving Man
    Required Level Level 50
    Quest Location Mor Dhona (X:22, Y:6) - Wiscard

    Casting Glamours

    First, ensure that you are in possession of the gear whose appearance you wish to alter (the base item), the gear whose appearance you wish to project (the projected item), and the corresponding glamour prism. Select the base item, then choose Cast Glamour from the subcommand menu.




    The glamour prism will be consumed upon use, but no gear will be lost in the process. Furthermore, gear used to cast glamours will be bound upon use of a glamour prism.

    Uncasting a glamour requires the use of a glamour dispeller.

    Projectable Items

    Glamours may be cast with any items that meet the following conditions:

    • The base and projected items are of the same type.
    • The equipment level of the projected item is equal to or lower than the base item.
    • The base item and projected item can be equipped by the same class or job.
    • The base item and projected item can be equipped by the same gender or race.

      For gear occupying more than one gear slot, one the following conditions must be met in addition to the above:
    • The base item and projected item occupy the same gear slots.
    • All of the projected item's gear slots fall within the base item's gear slots.

      Example - Able to cast glamours


    • Casting the glamour of a hooded cowl on another hooded cowl, as both occupy a body and head slot.
    • Casting the glamour of a robe on a hooded cowl, as the body and head slot of the hooded cowl include the body slot of the robe.
      * In this case, you will not appear to be wearing headwear.

      Glamours cannot be cast


    • Casting the glamour of a hooded cowl on a robe, as the head slot of the hooded cowl is not covered by the robe.

    • The equipment requirements of a glamoured item are identical to the base item.
    • The appearance of the base item will be used in the event your current class cannot equip the projected item.
    • Glamours may be temporarily disabled in PvP arenas and other unique areas.


    Acquire new gear to overcome the dangers of Eorzea, and magick them for a stylish appearance all your own.

    Y'know, I think i'd rather play this version as opposed to the highly detailed, beautiful version with a fuller storyline....

    Not as big a leap between PS3 and PS4 as I thought on the character models. PS4 looks slightly crisper but it's the textures where you really notice the difference. 'Dat grass on PS3 looks pretttyyy bad haha.

    EDIT: Just watched that remote play video. I thought that everything would look too small on Vita but looks like I was wrong. Not sure I'd feel comfortable playing it with the back touch pad though.

    More About Final Fantasy XIV ARR's Marriage System

    During this past weekend’s NicoNico Super Meeting 3, Square Enix held a special stage event for Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, called “Super F.A.T.E. in Tokyo” where producer Naoki Yoshida and other key developers talked about future updates for the game. Below are the summarized highlights of Famitsu’s reports from the two-day event (Part 1, 2, 3, and 4).



    Classes and Jobs:

    -More details on new classes/jobs will be revealed later at future events, such as E3, Japan EXPO, and Gamescom. New classes/jobs that involve the use of daggers/knives and guns have been hinted in the game, with one possibly being Thief (or Ninja).

    -Black Mages will be getting buffed, since many players feel that they don’t excel as much compared to other damage dealing classes in the new Coil.

    -Summoners will be getting Leviathan and a certain “old lightning man” as their next summons. This will likely happen when the level cap is increased in the future.

    Housing

    -Plans for personal rooms in Free Company housing were briefly detailed. According to Yoshi-P, this will be similar to the Mog House from Final Fantasy XI, where you can decorate it and other players can enter. Players will be able to grant permission for visits from other players.

    -As for personal housing, you’ll need a level 50 character and get up to a certain rank in the Grand Company. This will be introduced sometime after the Free Company’s personal rooms are made available in Patch 2.3, and the size will be a little larger than the ones at the inns. The prices will be around 850,000 gil, which Yoshida says might be a bit too much, so it could be lower.

    -Ul’dah isn’t exactly too popular as far as a Free Company housing area goes, so it’ll be completely revamped in scenery with nicer night skies, and less mountains and rocks that obstruct view, and more.


    Dungeons, Raids, and PvP:

    -Patch 2.3 will introduce a massive PvP mode called “Frontline” that will involve three teams fighting against each other, with up to 24 players or more.

    -The next part of Crystal Tower will be introduced in patch 2.3, and there will be content in it that will make the older fans say “woah!”

    -Tam-Tara Hard Mode will be introduced in Patch 2.3.

    -Patch 2.2 and earlier updates introduced three new dungeons, all similarly dark and in night-like areas, minus the new Brayflox that Japanese fans call “Bomberman”. Yoshida says the next one will be an outdoor dungeon called “something island” with nice and clear skies.


    Other Misc. Info:

    -The Gold Saucer will be revealed soon. Since contains a large amount of content, the team is still in the planning stages. There will be some Chocobo-related features, along with some combat features, and much more.

    -A marriage system is currently being discussed. It will be for sometime after Patch 2.3, and more will be announced in the near future. Brides will have special wedding dresses that will have parts that flow nicely. There will be two rings for the couple, and throwing them away will result in a “divorce”.

    -New Chocobo content will be added. There will be a breeding hut that will be released for Patch 2.3 or 2.35 that will let you train your Chocobo, and possibly change its colors depending on what you feed it.

    -Patch 2.28 is expected to be released sometime in May.

    -More hairstyles will be added in the next patch.

    -Two-man mounts are currently being tested.

    -Content that can be played with one to three people will be added in Patch 2.3.

    -Max capacity for Allagan Tomes will be increased in either 2.28 or 2.3.

    -More collaboration events with Final Fantasy XI will be planned.
