What's gameplay like in The Wildlands of Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII? Square Enix has just released a new 8-and-a-half minute video showing us just that, narrated by game design director Yuji Abe.
The Wildlands is a "sprawling natural wilderness" to explore, where beasties run amok. Chaos spreads rather aggressively in this open free area, teeming with sidequests.
The gameplay footage shows off more of the battle system mechanics, customisation options, a boss battle and chocobos for that stamp of Final Fantasy authenticity.
Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII releases on Xbox 360 and PS3 February 14th, 2014.
