Square Enix’s efforts to resurrect Final Fantasy XIV with its Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn relaunch and PS3 port continue to secure it much praise, with many now willing to concede that the game – graphically at least – shows some rather impressive improvements.

The latest screens, showing impressive graphics and sundry improvements to the UI:

The changes are so drastic that Square Enix is actually wiping all servers (preserving existing characters only) and stopping new registrations until the game’s release (which will include yet another round of free subscriptions), so the “2.0” is probably not an overstatement, although whether it will be possible to recover the anticipation which followed the original remains to be seen.

Concept art reveals some interesting locations, and the fact that the horsebirds now get interesting hats:
