A Realm Reborn beta begins mid-February

December 26th, 2012 by Tony Garsow


As the alpha phase of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn concludes, the team moves forward to the eventual beta phase and release of the game. Today, director and producer Naoki Yoshida revealed the new roadmap to release, providing fans of an idea of when to expect the game — and what the beta test will consist of. First, it’s worth mentioning that Phase 1 (of 4) of the beta will begin in mid-February and consist of Legacy players who were subscribed for a certain amount of time during Version 1.0.

Later on the testing pool will open up to include everyone else, and by Phase 4 that will include PlayStation 3 users. Note: Players in possession of a Square Enix Members code that came bundled with Final Fantasy XIII will be given priority for the PS3 Beta Test. The Beta Tester application site will open in January. When all four phases complete, A Realm Reborn will launch. By the timeline given in the roadmap, this may be around June.
