So You Think You Can Ride This Chocobo?

December 18th, 2012 by Tony Garsow

Behemoth-style chocobo barding makes a debut.

Final Fantasy XIV director/producer Naoki Yoshida, in his Letters From the Producer Live videos, showed off plans for the new chocobo barding players will have to customize their mount. Today, Fernehalwes of the localization team got to peek at one of these new designs in the works: the Behemoth chocobo barding. In Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, chocobos will have purpose beyond getting player from A to B — but as a partner in battle with abilities of their own. Details of the system are still sparse, but you can expect to have chocobos fulfill certain functions in battle like healing or damage dealing.

The alpha phase is currently set to end toward the end of the month with beta still set for late January or early February. A new roadmap that will detail the schedule up until release is currently being finalized, so look forward to that surfacing soon.

So what kind of chocobo barding or mounts would you like to see in Final Fantasy XIV? Leave us a comment below!
