Hello all!
Fernehalwes here.

Now that we’ve finished tidying up after Yoshi-P’s little smash session with the Hammer of the Gods, I can finally bring you some screenshots from the new and improved Beta version.

As many of you may recall from the Alpha version walkthroughs released last month, we had yet to introduce the passing of time, so all the footage you saw took place in the day.

Our programmers, however, have been busy working behind the scenes, readying the realm for nightfall...and here’s an exclusive first look!

The Knot in Old Gridania:

The moon in her different phases:

Ah, but will facing north-by-northeast at 2:45 a.m. while the moon is a waning crescent result in a 27% increase in your chances to synthesize HQ mythril ingots!? That is real the question!

The world is starting to show some signs of the attention to detail I was hoping for.

Those screenshots look quite beautiful. It looks even better than 1.0 did by far.

Two types of attitudes...the "why would we do that?" and "Is there a reason not to do that?".

Its really starting to look like Yoshi is going with #2 with RR.

Pretty damn cool IMO. It all comes down to will there be enough of us who care.

Tis shiny.

Now if only there were enough player-made or game-made events that took real advantage of such glorious moonlit nights.

Like a moonlit ball with custom waltzing emotes.

Gorgeous. I was wondering why it was broad daylight in the alpha videos.

This DX11 engine is kicking *** and taking names.

Yeah I really wanna run through the cities at night now.

One thing I loved about 1.0 is seeing the glow of lights in windows in Limsa Lominsa from a distance. This looks even better than I hoped.

Ok that was pretty funny.

The screenshots are really nice too. Can't say the game isn't pretty.

Your standards for wit are impressively low.

Hey, I like to think I'm pretty lenient. Most OOT talk usually gets killed on other forums, of course once ARR launches I'll probably have to police that more but we don't have a ton to talk about as is.

One thing SE has always gotten right is their game engines.
