Las Vegas, NV -- (ReleaseWire) -- 09/02/2010 -- YG.com, a leading provider of Internet gaming and online community tools, has officially launched their database site for Final Fantasy XIV (FFXIV). This site is the first complete FFXIV database, with detailed information about items, skills, NPCs, quests, guildleves, and more.
FFXIV, Square Enix's second venture into the MMORPG genre, is the sequel to Final Fantasy XI (FFXI). It was first mentioned in August 2005 under the codename "Rapture", and has been much awaited by the gaming community since then. FFXIV features elements similar to FFXI, such as experience-based level-progression, but will also include "skill-based progression", which is similar to that of Final Fantasy II. Its job system, referred to as the "Armoury System", enables players to take on various roles of their choosing (such as Thaumaturge or Archer) simply by wielding different weapons.
YG.com's FFXIV database (http://ffxiv.yg.com) features useful information about crafting, items like weapons and armor, as well as detailed information about skills, guildleves, NPCs, recipes, and quests. Users can easily navigate through the database's many sections through the site menu, or type in keywords in the site's search box to find the exact information that they need. The database also includes a collection of zone maps to help players navigate through the world of Eorzea. Like their other database sites, YG.com's Final Fantasy XIV database provides syndication tools for users' websites, which include item tooltips, the YG FFXIV search box, and a browser plug-in that allows anyone to search for something in the database straight from their browsers.
"Now that open beta has started, we decided this was the best time to open our database for the FFXIV community to use," said Brian Higby, YG.com chief technology officer. "Given that a lot of things may change as the game moves from open beta to its final release, we will make sure that our FFXIV database is up-to-date and accurate in order to keep up with the players' needs."
