Square Enix is making improvements to Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, but more specifically, its character creation system. When creating a character in the game, you are able to choose a race such as the Hyur, which is human-like. You can also choose between different classes. Among these classes (so far) are Gladiator, Lancer, Thaumaturge, Conjurer, Pugilist, and Archer.
Square Enix is currently looking for alpha testers in order to get feedback on the game. If you are interested in testing out the new version of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, you can do so by registering here. Naoki Yoshida says that testing will commence on October 29, 2012.
