Square Enix has sent out a newsletter for users holding an account with Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, and it included a very interesting message regarding the game’s upcoming Playstation 4 release:
“But enough about the past-let’s talk about what’s in store for 2014. And what a fitting year for the fourteenth installment of FINAL FANTASY! The PlayStation 4 will be releasing here in Japan on February 22, a date which will also mark the beginning of beta testing for the PlayStation 4 version of FFXIV: ARR. Preparations are well underway, and we want to make sure that PlayStation 4 users around the world can get right into the action with no need to apply beforehand. Boasting the new Share feature and Remote Play with the PlayStation Vita, the planned April release of the PlayStation 4 version should be a momentous occasion indeed!”
The bolded phrase is what you should pay extra attention to – it seems they’re hinting at the Playstation 4 beta being completely open to the public? This could also simply be them stating users who have already been playing the game and own a Playstation 4 can get in because of their membership.
Whatever the case, the Playstation 4 version of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn is coming very soon. We’ll keep you guys posted.
