Looking for something to do this weekend? The beta for Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn is now available for download on the PlayStation 4 and you can play for free all weekend (until 1:00am PDT on Monday April 7th to be exact).
The beta uses live game servers so players can join other PlayStation 3 and PC gamers for a well rounded experience. You will be able to use existing characters if you are carrying over an account from PS3 or PC. Also, any character you create in the beta will be transferred at the start of the official service so don't worry that your hard work this weekend will be lost.
If you are in love with the game after playing the beta, you can pre-order the full title and have early access to the game on Friday, April 11th. Otherwise, Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn for PS4 launches on Monday, April 14th.
Here are the instructions on how to participate:
Everyone who has a PlayStation®4 system is eligible to participate in the Beta test for free (there is no need for advance registration of the game).
- On your PlayStation®4 system, proceed to the PlayStation®Store and download FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn (Beta Version). Once the download is complete, the installation will begin automatically.
- Start FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn (Beta Version) from the home screen.
- Log in using (or create for free) a Square Enix account and follow the on-screen instructions to start the game.
