It was confirmed by Square-Enix that all PS4 gamers will have access to the Final Fantasy XIV open beta next month. This should mean that anyone who is interested in the game will be able to try it for free, whether they already have a FFXIV or not.
The BETA will be opened on February 22nd and anyone who is interested in playing it will have the option to download the game BETA and try it out. Square stated that you would not have to be signed up for the BETA to try the game out, it is opened for everyone. A report even suggests that the game on the PS4 will even be available to play for all players and does not require PS Plus so that is a little less expense as you don’t have to play this on top of the game’s monthly subscription. This is just a report and has yet to be confirmed though.
Final Fantasy XIV has brought a lot of attention back to the franchise heavily since the game was re-launched as A Realm Reborn in August. The game is set to be released in April in the US.
