Final Fantasy XIV demos ‘VR Titan Suppression Battle’ at Tokyo Game Show

    
25
If you happen to be in Tokyo for the Tokyo Game Show this week, make sure to drop by the Sony booth to gawk, as Square-Enix has told Japanese fans that it will be showing Final Fantasy XIV on Sony’s Project Morpheus VR platform.

Well, actually, it’s just called PlayStation VR now. Farewell, Project Morpheus.

Google’s (mangled) translation of the blog post titles the exhibited content as “Final Fantasy XIV: VR Titan Punitive War. A Redditor has translated the post and content as “Final Fantasy XIV: VR Titan Suppression Battle.”

At the Sony Online Entertainment Playstation® booth for the exhibition of Project Morpheus, it’s been confirmed that FFXIV demo content will be showcased!
It’s name…
Final Fantasy XIV: VR Titan Suppression Battle
Wow! Through Project Morpheus you can experience the world of FFXIV.
Force Titan! (below is a picture of the rock/magma titan)
Beat up the Titan as a four-man party… Trip his legs and watch him fall from a cliff… Or admire a cute character…
This is the best way to escape from reality! The VR Titan Suppression Battle demo is a special version arranged for Project Morpheus so those even those who are not strong at Titan Battles can feel free to join in.
Currently this is the only place in the world where you will get to experience FFXIV’s world through Project Morpheus so all Warriors of Light, by all means please come and try out our exhibition!

Don’t get too excited, though: Square has told Eurogamer that it’s just a demo. “This is a demo that’s been created for TGS. […W]e don’t have any plans for an official release.” Let’s hope they’re testing the waters.

Because of all the ground-based AoE that requires dodging, I couldn’t see this actually working for the game anyway, at least not from a 1st person perspective and otherwise, you’re just playing with a monitor in your face.

Greaterdivinity It sure is amazing what a healthy, steady income of monthly fees and a company willing to put that money back into the game can do on a content scale.
Half the reason I think F2Ps in general don’t put out near as much content as this is that they figure most of the people aren’t actually paying for the content, but paying for lockboxes/plushies/wardrobes, which was never considered ‘content’ for the longest time.
Now, a lot of stupid players have accepted that a $7 hat is ‘content’, so devs spin up 5 versions of the same lame ass hat, put it on the cash shop, call it ‘new content’ and consider that a full month’s work.

Wratts I already get a shin height view when I use my Rift on my Lalafel. It’s really weird having to look up at everything.

It’s kinda crazy when you think about how much content gets put out for FFXIV and the fact that they build tech demos like this and the fighting game demo/video.
Seriously, I wonder if YoshiP and team ever leave the office. Or sleep.

Armsbend Well the “meaningful” part of that expectation will be personal, but you could argue that Samsung has done it with Gear VR.  I’ve seen their commercials quite a few times where it shows a group of teens sitting around a kid wearing one, he pulls it off and says “you have got to see this!” excitedly…    and we’ve seen Hot Pockets commercials where a guy needs a snack whilst wearing his visor, and stumbles around and breaks stuff while playing (and eating his hot pocket)
