New Character System For Final Fantasy XIII

Square Enix have changed the character growth system for the upcoming Final Fantasy XIII. In the new system, your character will no longer be ranked on a level basis, you will ‘buy’ new skills as you go.

The new system, called the Crystalium system will have you defeat enemies and earn crystal points (CP) as opposed to XP. And as opposed to leveling-up when you reach a predefined points cap, you will use your crystal points to purchase new skills and abilities.

As you exchange points for new talents down one branch of the chart you will open up new abilities. As a feature to using the Crystalium system, it appears we will see abilities on the chart available based on character class, such as Attacker or Defender.

Interesting indeed.
