Goddamn! We were given this trailer by Square Enix to use in our PS5 Final Fantasy 16 preview, and now it has been released to the public as part of a PAX East 2023 panel that took place earlier today. The purpose of the trailer is to highlight some of the landscapes you’ll see in Valisthea, and we have to say, the art direction is superb.
The studio decided against making this an open world game and instead focused on a handful of massive sandbox stages. The team claims this has allowed them to put in countless hours of work to bring each location to life, and it shows in the trailer. There’s a lot to see and do, and it’s all equally inviting.
Closer to the game’s release, we’ll learn more about Valisthea and the exploration aspects of Final Fantasy 16, but in the meantime, you can get a taste of the world by reading our aforementioned preview. However, before you go, please leave your feedback on this video in the section below – good, innit?!
