If you haven't had the chance to check out the recent beta events for Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, you can get the next best thing with Square Enix's recent string of videos, and most recently, this new developer walkthrough showcasing the area Eorzea.
As I've said many times before, I wasn't a big fan of vanilla XIV, but I'm loving the beta for A Realm Reborn so far, and I'm looking forward to checking it out later this year on PC, and eventually, the PS4. I'm really hopeful for the future of Final Fantasy as of late, as Lightning Returns looks like it could solve some of my issues with the first two XIII games, and FF XV looks excellent so far.
