Watch the eight-minute opening movie.

Square Enix is now accepting applications for the upcoming Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn beta test. You can sign-up at Square-Enix.com, based on your region: North America, Europe, or Japan.

Beta applicants can apply for the PlayStation 3 beta, Windows beta, or both. If you still have the Square-Enix Members code that came bundled with the PlayStation 3 version of Final Fantasy XIII, you’ll have the option to use that. Square Enix notes that if you’ve applied for the PlayStation 3 beta for Final Fantasy XIV Version 1.0 and were selected for the Windows version instead, you don’t need to apply again to test the PlayStation 3 version. Your original application will be reconsidered for this beta.

Square Enix also released the game’s eight-minute opening movie. Watch it below.

    Wow, absolutely amazing. The original version of this trailer was fantastic and I’m really glad they added more to it. I loved seeing Limsa Lominsa and the harbour again. I can’t wait to play A Realm Reborn!

    I signed up for the PS3 Beta with my FFXIII members code. I hope I get picked.

    I’ve never really been into MMORPGs, but the revamp of FFXIV looks pretty interesting, and I admit, I’m a sucker for almost anything with “Final Fantasy” in the title >3>
