FFXIV open beta in early September

Closed beta ends tomorrow.

Square Enix has announced that its next MMO, Final Fantasy XIV, will go into open beta in early September.

This will follow the closure of the current closed beta test tomorrow, 25th August.

The news was made public on the game's official Twitter.

The game will then be released at the end of September, with a special edition offering early access on 22nd September, and general release on the 30th. That's the PC version - it's been delayed until March next year on PS3 for technical reasons.

We've been spending a fair bit of time in the closed beta recently, and we'll have a preview for you soon.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. For more information, go here.
