The Primal Threat in A Realm Reborn

August 22nd, 2013 by Tony Garsow

In Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn you’ll come into contact with the Primals — beings summoned from the Aether that resemble classic monsters from the Final Fantasy series’ pantheon of summons, aeons, espers, or eidolons. In the video above, we’re introduced to two kinds of primal encounters — those by participating in a trial, and those by joining a FATE.

FATE encounters like Behemoth and Odin (as seen in the video above) will take place outside of an instance and around the world map. Roaming the Coerthas snowscape will eventually put you between Behemoth’s horns, so you will need to call on all of your friends to take him down. Odin, on the other hand, will wander the Black Shroud — so when the sky turns an unearthly hue, you’ll need to summon your strength (and friends) to take him on.

In trials available through the game’s party matchmaking service, you’ll encounter Ifrit, Garuda, and Titan. These trials will come through the main storyline of A Realm Reborn, and will also include a Hard Mode meant to be challenged at the level 50 cap. An additional Extreme Mode will be available for hardcore players looking to prove their mettle against some of the games most iconic encounters.

Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn releases on August 27th for Windows PC and PlayStation 3. A PlayStation 4 version is scheduled for next year. If you pre-order today, you’ll be entered into an early access phase beginning this Saturday!
