We take a look at the Secret World dropping its subscription, Final Fantasy XIV preparing for its Realm Reborn relaunch, and Asheron's Call 2 being resurrected from the graveyard of dead MMOs.
For this month's edition of MMO Co-Opportunities we're doing something a little different. We'll be looking at Final Fantasy XI, but since I have very little personal experience with this MMO, I've turned to the gaming community for a community contribution of co-opportunities!
We just got the first trailer for Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light for the Nintendo DS from Square-Enix. The trailer shows off the games story and four player cooperative gameplay and will be showcased at the upcoming E3 Expo.
Square Enix, the company behind the much heralded and condemned (depending on who you ask) Final Fantasy series of games, has recently announced a new entry in the series, entitled Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light, due to hit store shelves October 5, 2010. Like many of the Crystal Chronicles offshoots, such as Crystal Bearers and Echoes of Time, Heroes of Light will allow jRPG enthusiasts to team up to fight the evil hordes. There aren't too many details just yet about what kind of co-op this will be, e.g., local only, wireless, how the co-op system works, but it's a promising start, at least. The press release and some in-game screenshots can be found after the break.
Wow! Who knew the Spring time could be so jam packed full of gaming goodness. We've got the most reviews ever in an issue of Beyond Co-Op, stack in at eight high with the likes of God of War 3, Final Fantasy XIII and many, many more.
The latest Crystal Chronicles game, The Crystal Bearers, mixes things up from the usual formula by introducing a whole new game design and limits the co-op experience to just two player. Was this a good change, or should Square Enix have stuck with the usual?
While the past Crystal Chronicle titles had a strong focus on cooperative play, the upcoming title The Crystal Bearers for the Wii is instead focused on single player gameplay. There is still co-op play, though it might not be what people expect. We chatted with the game's producer to find out why.
We have a very special and unique trivia contest for Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: The Crystal Bearers where one lucky person can win an exclusive signed and framed piece of artwork by Toshiyuki Itahana. Not only will it be signed, it'll be customized with your name on it!
