Following 17 minutes of gameplay footage from TGS last week, today sees yet more Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII gameplay taken from the vast open space of The Wildlands. Home to a variety of side quests and secrets, The Wildlands look rather lush, as you can see in the new vid.
Featuring narration from Game Design Director Yuji Abe, the 8-minute gameplay snippet showcases the xpansive natural wilderness of Gran Pulse, wherein Beasts run free and people live a simple, self-sufficient existence that belies the aggressive spread of Chaos in the region.
A freely explorable, open area, The Wildlands is also home to chocobos such as the white chocobo, and chocobo eaters, the latter of which provides a boss battle that you can also see played out in the trailer below. Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII is out in February 2014.
