Final Fantasy 14 out on PS4 on 14th April

Beta available to all, starts 22nd Feb.

Rejuvenated MMO Final Fantasy 14 will spread onto PlayStation 4 on 14th April. And, if you're an existing player on PS3, you can transfer to playing the game on PS4 for free, retaining all your character data. But once you swap, you cannot go back.

A PS4 beta test for the game starts 22nd February, and anyone with the console can play.

Pre-ordering the game on PS4 gives you an Early Access weekend (11th-13th April) and two in-game items: Mog Cap and Cait Sith Doll Minion.

A PS4 Collector's Edition gives in-game Fat Chocobo Mount and Wind-Up Moogle Minion items, as well as in-the-box goodies such as an art book, soundtrack, art card set, themed security token and movie thing called The Waning of the Sixth Sun.

Incidentally, anyone who bought the FF14 Collector's Edition on PC or PS3 will get those Fat Chocobo Mount and Wind-Up Moogle items as well.

FF14 Online requires a monthly subscription once the 30-day free trial runs out. Fees start at £7.69 / €10.99 a month.
