FFXIV beta on PS4 open to everyone this weekend

Characters created in Final Fantasy XIV this weekend will transfer over to the full game when it launches later this month.


Square Enix has opened up its PlayStation 4 beta for Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn to everyone this weekend.

The beta started at 09:00 BST/01:00 PT this morning, and will run until 09:00/01:00 PT on Monday April 7.

The beta will be running on the actual game servers, so it's possible to join your friends playing the game on PlayStation 3 or PC. Square Enix adds that any characters created or progress made in this beta will carry over the full version of the game, which is released on April 14.

To get involved, the 11GB client can now be downloaded from the PlayStation Store. You'll also have to register an account with Square Enix to get started.

The successful relaunch of Final Fantasy XIV is one of the main reasons Square Enix expects to return to profit this year.
