Final Fantasy XIV News

Posted by Xenor Vernix on Aug 23, 2010 - 12:01.

Square Enix have announced that the closed beta phase for Final Fantasy XIV will end on August 25th. The open beta will begin shortly after, in early September. We're unsure how you will gain access to the beta but we know it will require some form of application process.

I gained access to the beta at the weekend and I am very happy with what I have seen so far. During the downtime between the two beta phases I intend to make a post about my beta experiences, with screenshots. I will also be updating the website with abilities, weapons and other useful information from the beta.

I pre-ordered the PS3 version of the game from gamestop and on their website there are details for signing up for the pre-order bonuses. If you look at the product description for the game there is a link at the bottom which takes you to a website "". There you can enter your email address and supposedly they will email you about a week before the official launch on the 27th of August about how to join the early access which I'm assuming is the open-beta.

I can't tell you yet. Once we find out the details of how to join the open beta we'll post them.
Sometimes pre-ordering helps gain access to open betas, but there's no way to know for sure until they announce something.

Do I need to preorder the game to join Open Beta?
