Final Fantasy XIV 72-player Frontline battles, Chocobo Raising, and more detailed

Posted on June 12, 2014 AT 11:57am

Square Enix today livestreamed the 15th Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn Letter from the Producer, with director and producer Naoki Yoshida answering questions about upcoming content.

During the livestream Yoshida discussed the upcoming Frontlines PvP mode. According to him, the mode is designed to ease players into PvP and will involve three teams of 24 players battling. The battles will last an average of 30 minutes, and players have the option of switching their job at any point during the battle as long as they are at an outpost. The Frontlines map will also contain monsters that can be defeated as well as players.

Yoshida also offered a few details about the personal Free Company housing rooms that will be added with patch 2.3. The rooms will all look the same regardless of the size of your Free Company house, and items placed in the room will not count towards the house total. Also, the size of the room is slightly bigger than the first floor of a small house, and it is exepected to cost around 300,000 Gil.

Finally, Chocobo raising was discussed. Players will be able to install a stable in their Free Company house garden to train Chocobos, meaning that the system is only available to players who have access to a house. A ta  alter date a system will be implemented for those that don’t. Thanks to a new limit break, accessible via Chocobo raising, players will finally be able to raise their bird past level 10 and unlock all skills. When the system is implemented only one Chocobo can be raised, but once the Golden Saucer and Chocbo Races are added, players will be able to raise multiple Chocobos.
