If you’ve been tempted by Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, but want to hang out and play it “properly” on the PlayStation 4, we now have a date for you to put in your calendars, as Square Enix announces details of the upcoming beta test.
You won’t even have to take a day off work, as the action kicks off on Saturday, February 22nd.
…of course, if you can’t wait that long, FFXIV:ARR is available right now for Windows PC and PlayStation 3, but early reports suggest that you might want to hold your horses a little. Fans have swarmed the game’s servers, so Squre Enix is rushing to increase the number of available spots as well as “strengthening” the service environment. The crowding should settle down soon, we’re told.
If that’s not enough to deter you, but you think you might want to make the leap onto PS4 next year, you won’t have to choose: Grab the PS3 version now, and you will be able to transition to PS4 at no extra cost, tranitioning your character data from one machine to the other.
