Following the reveal of the Heavensward opening cinematic, SQUARE ENIX also released an extended version of the A Realm Reborn opening cinematic. The new footage, added directly to the end of the End of an Era cinematic, covers the events that transpired after the moment the Warrior of Light was sent into the future.
Parts of this cinematic were originally shown in-game after the successful complete of the Turn 12 raid instance (officially known as The Final Coil of Bahamut Turn 3), as they uncovered the truth and ultimate fate of Louisoix Leveilleur, who had been a major NPC in the events of the 1.x patch series. As such, the cinematic contains a sizeable helping of spoilers. For players who’ve still yet to finish The Final Coil of Bahamut, and don’t want any of the surprises ruined, it’d be best not to watch this. For everyone else, you can find the cinematic below.
