FFXIV’s New Raid Recreates 1 of Final Fantasy VIII’s Most Legendary Summons – PlayStation.Weblog


Heads up — this post functions a truly cool scene from the new raid just added to Final Fantasy XIV Shadowbringers. If you are arranging to play it but haven’t but, go do that ahead of reading any additional!

For weeks, the FFXIV neighborhood has been scratching its collective head about the premise of the game’s newest eight-player raid, titled merely “Eden.” Of course, there’s a summon Guardian Force players can use in Final Fantasy eight with the very same name, but is that what the group is referencing right here? If so, how the heck will that operate?

Final week, the new raid lastly dropped and players got to see firsthand what precisely is going on right here. And yep — they went for it. I will not detail the story developments that place you up against the most ridiculous, overpowered Guardian Force from FF8, but it is a factor that takes place and it is glorious. The moment you drop into the initially fight of the new raid, a newly orchestrated arrangement of Final Fantasy VIII’s great boss theme kicks in and you locate oneself face-to-face with an entity known as “Eden Prime.” It is an engaging fight with a lot of entertaining mechanics and attacks for players to operate about, but the coup de grace kicks in about halfway via the encounter: A practically shot-for-shot recreation, in FFXIV’s engine, of the “Eternal Breath” attack from Final Fantasy VIII. Behold:

In case it wasn’t apparent — Left: Final Fantasy VIII // Proper: Final Fantasy XIV

I will not speak about exactly where the raid goes immediately after you finish this certain fight — but it is superior. If you went ahead and spoiled oneself on this regardless of my warning at the best of the post, just know that this is but one particular of lots of ridiculous factors that take place more than the course of Shadowbringers — and Final Fantasy XIV as a entire, which takes place to have a cost-free trial you can sign up for proper now.

Anyone else playing via the new Shadowbringers content material proper now? What do you assume? Let’s chat in the comments! (But let’s keep away from speaking endgame spoilers.)
