To go along with this announcement, the publisher released a trailer for the game. Unfortunately - and to no one's surprise - we have no idea when the world of FFXIV will see this major overhaul, as all we have to go on right now is a "soon" release window. Don't hold your breath though, as Square's concept of time is clearly quite different than the average person's (see Versus XIII).
Check out the trailer below.
