Walk, jump, ride chocobos, and jump while riding chocobos.

Original 08.15 at 11:25 a.m.: Square Enix presented the first-ever gameplay demonstration of Final Fantasy XIV‘s 2.0 update, A Realm Reborn, at Gamescom in Cologne today.

Our friends at JPGames.de were there to record the 13-minute presentation, which sees our custom-created heroes walking, jumping, riding chocobos, jumping while riding chocobos, and of course, doing battle.

Watch the presentation below. And if you missed this morning’s screenshot update, check them out here.

Update 08.19 at 11:00 a.m.: Here it is again in high-definition, once again courtesy of JPGames.de:

      Gameplay wise, It’s going to look pretty much the same running on the PS3.

      It will be just like FF11 on the PS2 was, PS2 players will get to do all the same stuff the PC players are doing, and even play together on the same servers. The only real difference will be in the visuals.

        That’s good but I’m still waiting for some PS3 gameplay so I can see what they’ve taken out.

    I was pretty familiar with quite a bit of the stuff they showed in this video. It felt more like someone running around in a new area, with a new UI layout, and doing some new quests. Most of the attacks used in the video, I’ve used before in the current XIV.

    In other words, everything I’ve seen so far is more like an expansion pack, versus a brand new game. I’m wanting to see more of the new game, or at least get that new game feeling.

    My feelings on what I’ve seen so far are very mixed. It’s kinda hard to explain my feelings on it with people who have never played XIV before. Having played it before gives me a very different point of view.

    I think I’d like to give the beta test a try in the future.

    The question is: Are you willing to pay subscribtion fee. I for one don’t like the idea of Subscription based games for a console, that’s PC’s thing, leave consoles out of this.
