Chocobos and airships debut in FFXIV 1.19

August 15th, 2011 by Tony Garsow

The next major patch for Final Fantasy XIV is on the way, and director/producer Naoki Yoshida updated us with all the major changes that we can expect. The biggest of which is the introduction of mounted and airship travel in Eorzea. Chocobos, per the “My Little Pony Chocobo” system, will be rent-able from each of the three major capitals for a fee. Players who participate in the Grand Companies of Eorzea quests will get a chocobo of their own through completion of various requirements. Airship travel will come to FFXIV, and expect a sum of gil as ferry between the three major capitals.

Other major changes include a battle with Ifrit, low level beginner dungeons, Beastman strongholds, and the abolition of physical levels.

■ You can read more about more major changes coming to Eorzea here.

    Better late than ever.
    Reminds me of the black choco’s from Wings Of Godess areas in FFXI.
    Except, not black.. ha.

    The flag is also draped on the side of the choco is also really sweet ^^.

    Might I add, the chocobo design in FF14 has huge feet? or is just me? lol

  • Jeels

    Hopefully we get some hints about the PS3 version at TGS.

    @Jeels

    I wouldn’t get your hopes up. There is still allot with the class/job system and many more system-side adjustments that need to be taken care of first. Right now we are told patch 1.19 is set for release late September. Meaning patch 1.20(class/job introduction) probably won’t be till late October/early November. I always say for safety to expect March 2012 a reasonable time frame for PS3 news. I’ve been wrong before =P.

    @Alumminah
    Lol I thought that was a bit cheesy too. But, recent Dev post’ prove this was more like a ‘joke’ than a for sure thing at the moment. I’ll bet the negative response to the name will put it off the list quick.

    am actually waiting for job/class improvements and they need to make the animation on magic and more exciting to see and so on! just like FFXI! but btw this, i cant wait for this update.

  • The_Badass

    I hope this game will be released on PS3 in late 2012 as part of the 25th Anniversary of Final Fantasy.

  • Juggernaut6

    It would be so cool if you could get your own personal airship. Airship battles would be awesome as well.
