Final Fantasy XIV A Realm Reborn Beta Kicks Off

February 25th, 2013 by Tony Garsow


Today marks the beginning of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn‘s beta testing phase. Divided into four segments, the first phase of testing invited fans that participated in the Legacy campaign as well as the alpha testing to participate. If you do not apply to either group, double-check your email for an invite — as a small amount of fans have reportedly been selected to test. If you have yet to apply for beta, you can do so by following this link.

Square Enix recently released the new benchmark for Final Fantasy XIV entitled “Exploration”. Another character creator client will release closer to the game’s launch date. For PlayStation 3 users excited for the game, you too can sign up for beta at the aforementioned link. As beta testing proceeds into Phase 3, console users will be contacted through their corresponding emails.

When all four beta phases complete (the last one being an open beta), A Realm Reborn will launch. Via the road-map director Yoshida released earlier this year, the time frame puts the release date somewhere between mid-April at the earliest — to June at the latest. Depending on the amount of feedback the team gets on the game, as well as assessing critical functions and settling the nitty-gritty game mechanics, expect each phase to have a bit of time frame malleability.

The following is the official launch road-map.

    Damn, we might now play this game until June-August, depending on how long this Beta will last.

    I hope to be invited in the PS3 beta then.

  • Steven

    we might *not*

  • Alice

    T oT … wanna play too

  • Cody

    honestly, i’d rather see them get it right than release too early.
    so the longer they take perfecting the game the better.

  • Hmm it looks like your site ate my first comment (it was
    super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I had written and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to the whole thing. Do you have any helpful hints for inexperienced blog writers? I’d
    certainly appreciate it.

    been beta testing it and love the graphics so far and the game play. would like it better if they applied voices to the characters rather than reading everything that is said. battle mode is better as well. found a few typos in the game when people are talking on certain worlds. Should look into that and try to get them fixed as well.

    1 week left before phase 4 starts then 2 weeks of phase 4 and then launch. can’t wait for phase 4 or for the game to launch. waiting to buy it already.
