Square Enix has announced that the promised open beta for Final Fantasy XIV will begin tomorrow, 1st September, at 1pm BST / 2pm GMT / 7pm PDT.

People who were in on the recently completed closed beta are already being invited to download the new client, which takes in a number of tweaks and changes.

Final Fantasy XIV will be released for PC on 30th September, with a special edition granting early access on 22nd September.

The PS3 version is due out in March next year.

Last week FFXIV found itself in the headlines after the game's director said it would restrict XP and skill point earnings after eight hours of play in any given week.
