North America and Europe to get beta with Japan.

Following the Japanese announcement this morning, Square Enix has confirmed the North American and European beta test for the PlayStation 4 version of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn will begin on February 22.

Furthermore, as announced in Japan, western PlayStation 3 players will be able to migrate to the PlayStation 4 version when it launches at no additional cost.

    Right on the Japanese launch date of the PS4! A whole lot of incentive there. Does this mean that the DX11 patch will also be available for PC around the same time?

    • Takane Shijou

      Believe they did want it to coincide with the PS4 launch, so we’ll see how that goes. Hoping it does, but if not, it shouldn’t be too far behind it and such.

  • Duc PC-QB

    Cant wait to play this on my Vita !

    …am I weird guys ?

    • bloodiOS

      Nope. Gaming in the john is a whole different beast.

    • JuhRo

      Heck to the no! That sounds amazing! Any Console Final Fantasy on the Vita would be awesome :D
      Heck, I’d replay FF13!… Yeah, it’d be awesome enough to want to go through 20 hours of tutorial again!. xD

      • Budgiecat

        why they did that

    • AnimusVox

      You are weird but not because of that. :L
      I’m kidding :3

  • Locksus

    Isn’t communication a problem for the console versions? I can imagine chatting with people being really bothersome when you don’t have a keyboard.

    • dzeidzei

      There are keyboards made for the PS3 too.

      • Locksus

        I guess not nearly everyone uses keyboards when playing FFXIV on their PS3.

        • Yuri4prez

          I don’t. I have used my vita as kind of a walkie talkie to talk to a couple of party members though hahaha

    • Yuri4prez

      Won’t be a problem on PS4 with party chat.

    • MrKappa

      You can easily buy a $13 USB keyboard to solve that problem.

    • Willgaea

      It’s plug in play with my Logitech keyboard.

    • Akira_Tenshi

      Come on…even the PS2 supported USB keyboards.

      • Locksus

        Yeah, but as I said, I reckon not nearly everyone uses them.

  • PrinceHeir

    glad i waited!

    • Akira_Tenshi

      Why? If you don’t own the PS3 game you still have to pay for the PS4 game. You could have got the game now and made some progress and moved to PS4 later for free.

    I really looking forward to seen, how the game play on PS4
