Final Fantasy XIV has had a rough ride. After launching to poor critical reception and dismal sales, Square Enix ended up erasing the world from existence with a meteor shower and spent the next three years building A Realm Reborn from the ground up. It was a bold endeavor, and now the developers want to make everyone’s rebirth as smooth as possible by offering a benchmark and character creation tool almost a month before the game comes out.
CCP's Chief Technical Officer, Halldor Fannar, has described their latest character creation tool as "Definitely on the bleeding edge of what you can do today." See examples of the tech after the jump.
