The Sept 2009 edition of Famitsu Wave has released in Japan with a DVD sporting an 8 minute section on Final Fantasy XIV that covered some more info.
-FFXIV world of ‘Haiderin’ is bigger then FFXI.
-Setting is a “high-fantasy” style differing from FFXI
-More advanced technology with a more modern setting.
-Some races will look familiar but will have different names.
-There will be no experience points. FFXIV revolved around “growth”.
-Many different quest and freedom to choose them that will allow your character to grow naturally.
-The job system will be kept with more added. Weapons will be the key to growth.
-Large scale battles are being considered.
-Music composed entirely by Uematsu
I personally can’t wait to see more info on this game. I’m hoping they figure out a way to tie in the hardcore FFXI fans with the more casual style of WOW playersl..
