Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn Opening Movie Released, Beta Signups Now Open
Square Enix has just released the opening movie for it’s upcoming MMO reboot of sorts Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. If you’re used to the usual CG-animated videos, then it might not show anything you haven’t already seen. But damn if Square Enix can’t make this stuff pretty.
More importantly, the developer has also announced signups for players who are interested in the beta. There are two different categories though:
– Players who met the Legacy campaign requirements can participate in the beta test starting from phase 1 and are not required to apply. However, we ask players who wish to participate in the PlayStation 3 beta test to apply for it.
– If you applied to be a PlayStation 3 beta tester for FF XIV Version 1.0 and were selected to test the Windows version instead, you need not apply again to test the PS3 version—your original application will be reconsidered when we start selecting PS3 testers. However, if you wish to be considered as a Windows PC tester, we ask that you apply specifically for that.
A Realm Reborn is currently scheduled to release in the middle of 2013 for PC and PS3. Sign up for the beta here for North America and here for Europe.
