Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn site updated with bestiary and location details


The rebirth of Final Fantasy XIV is live, and you can read all about it in our A Realm Reborn review.

Final Fantasy XIV may still only be in beta but that’s not stopping Square Enix from filling out the game’s site with details of the villains and beasts you’ll be battling. A packed bestiary’s been added to the site, telling the backstory and abilities of the beings which threaten Eorzea.

They’ve also dropped descriptions of Ishgard and Ala Mhigo, two of the realms you’ll be exploring.

The new Threats section of the site has subheadings dealing with the likes of the primals and beastmen – everything from the lowly kobold to the mighty Odin – and the head honchos.

Separate to the bestiary are the new location rundowns for Ishgard and Ala Mhigo. Ishgard is the spired mountaintop home of the Alabathians. Led by their sovereign archbishop, their knights wage constant war against the dragons which plague the realm. Ala Mhigo descended in grace since it was conquered by the Garlean Empire, now acting simply as another imperial state which lends its allegiances abroad. Still, it shows signs of its long history as a country devoted to war.

Its cool to see a developer providing so much material for its fans; particularly those invested in the game’s lore. Hopefully the codex will be expanded as the we approach Final Fantasy XIV’s 27 August release date.
