Final Fantasy 14: A Realm Reborn coming to PS4 on April 14

A PlayStation 4 beta will begin on February 22.

Final Fantasy XIV Online: A Realm Reborn will be released for PlayStation 4 on April 14, Square Enix has announced.

Preorders for the game have begun, with the game available in both a standard and collector's editions. The collector's edition will include the content in previous versions of the game, alongside a new fat Chocobo mount and a wind-up Moogle minion. These items will also be gifted for free to players who previously bought the collector's edition on other platforms.

The collector's edition will also feature an art book, a set of cards, and a soundtrack CD.

PlayStation 3 players will be able to transfer to the PlayStation 4 version of the game for free, but the procedure is one-way: players won't be able to go back.

Square Enix also announced that a beta for the PlayStation 4 version will begin on February 22.

For more information on the game, check out GameSpot's review of the PC version.

Only reason Im getting this is because nothing else I want is coming out in April. Unless Mario Kart 8 comes out. Also, where can I preorder?

I may get it just because nothing else I want is coming out in April. But if I have to pay for the game and then go home and pay again to play monthly, I'll pass.

Horrible repetitive end game grinding, now only prettier.

I will wait when it turns into a free to play. Most of these titles that charge a subscription fee usually fail and then turn free after a year. example: the last star wars online mmo

April is when I'll get my PS4 so count me in.

I wouldn't mind jumping back into the game but as a ps3 player that platform just lacked the chops to fully handle the game properly especially when in a group that uses a hvy amount of aoes. I'm going to need a list from square stating the improvements the ps4 has over the ps3 version before I get excited really.

Such a good game, wish i had time to play it. Dark souls 2 will keep me from playing again I'm sure

Unfortunately I bought the PC version and I didn't even fully play the first free month before quitting :(

People criticize Microsoft for being money hungry but it's SONY that is being the greedy company, example $10 monthly fee for PSN and a separate $14 monthly fee for SONY's MMO games and Gran Torismo 6 is full of micrtransactions,

wow SONY is really going after your wallet this generation

gottago42

Funny, SONY touted the PS4 as a console that doesn't require a internet connection yet most of the exclusive PS4 games require a internet connection, ironic

@ritsukoblue  Xbox Live sucks compared to PS+ .... Get a Playstation and throw that crap box out

@ritsukoblue It won't happen it is MS they won't use SE servers! and the game would be behind sub and XB Live, PS4 isn't behind the pay wall of PS+ like other online games

@Bansheezs Most? That's false and big name successful ones like this game will never. Look at ffxi for example.

@gottago42 Square Enix is the one charging 12.99$ not Sony wtf are you talking about?

@kay2kid example Everquest next, Dc Universe, Planet Side 2 require a separate $14 monthly fee on the PS4.

Do some research before you comment

@Shango4 here's a example all of the PS4's indie games and free to play games require a internet connection so you can download them SONY's MMO games require a internet connection KillZone Shadow Fall requires a internet connection to play the best part of the game- the multiplayer and Drive Club requires a internet connection, did I leave anything out

@gottago42 These games cost that much on every platform they are on you idiot, it's not sony charging and ps plus is only 50 bucks a year bud. Plus if you buy it at the right times its even cheaper.

BlackBaldwin

@gottago42 @kay2kid Your an idiot I PLAY Dc Universe and yes there's a subscription for the game but also a free to play side as well for casual mmo players that can purchase extra stuff for the game at their own pace. Not to mention its already been stated planetside 2 is using a free to play model for the ps4, not too sure about EverQuest Next yet since I heard it was recently announced it was coming to ps4 but since its owned by SOE I bet it be following suit like all the other mmo on the platform.

@gottago42 You don't need internet to play games on PS4, you just get more out of it obviously if you have internet. Are you retarded?

@gottago42 Not a fan boy at all and im just commenting to tell you that your argument or complaint or whatever it is is just dumb. 


Yes the system has Indie, free to play, MMO, and online multiplayer games. Yes to get or play those game you need internet access. There are other games that require no internet access. All launch tittles and full game releases that are not MMO require no internet access.  Internet access is not required just the way it was not required for the 360 or PS3.

You don't need Internet to play single player or split screen games, just like every other console.

@Shango4 like a said SONY touted that you don't need a internet connection to play games on the PS4,

no internet connection means no free to play games no indie games no MMO games that's 90% of the PS4's games selection

Shango4

@gottago42 Thats because you need internet to play Multiplayer games and MMOs,dumbass.
