Final Fantasy XVI Awakening - Announced for PS5/PC - Playstation Console Exclusive

Can't figure out whether I should play FF again. Back in the day I was obsessed. But after FF7 I veered away from JRPGs.


Partially because I loved the likes of Fallout, Skyrim, and the Witcher so much. More action-orientated I guess?


But also because the RPG game genre got assimilated by ALL other genres. Even sports games are mini-RPGs. That is, the reason I loved RPGs back in the day was to get my unique dose of exploration, story, loot, experience point grinding, skill trees, etc. But now all friggin games have that.


I still love me some turn-based tactical RPGs like Divinity and now Baldur's Gate. I'm just trying to figure out if whatever Final Fantasy current is, is something that I would like. I guess I'll just wait for the reviews and try to glean whether the gameplay is something I'd enjoy. I really have no idea what this franchise is anymore.

I was wondering the same thing, but for me it was FFX that was the last one.  FF XV is on gamepass though...  This new one looks like it's trying to be Game of Thrones.

Jason Schreier confirms that the game has been in development for four years with the last year being in full production. He also says that the game will release much sooner than people think.




Perhaps maybe a late 2021 or early 2022 title for the PS5?

Info on the game's world and its divided kingdoms:




The land of Valisthea is studded with Mothercrystals—glittering mountains of crystal that tower over the realms around them, blessing them with aether. For generations, people have flocked to these beacons to take advantage of their blessing, using the aether to conjure magicks that let them live lives of comfort and plenty. Great powers have grown up around each Mothercrystal, and an uneasy peace has long reigned between them. Yet now the peace falters as the spread of the Blight threatens to destroy their dominions.
