Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn Open Beta Starts with Overwhelming Load and a Challenge

Today at 2 AM Pacific time the open beta of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn started, at least for those that fulfilled one of more of the conditions for early entrance to the testing, while Producer and Director Naoki Yoshida issued a small challenge. (Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, PC, PS3, PS4)

Time to make them characters!! I look forward to the future of this game with future content as well.
Abriael  +   398d ago
That's if your server of choice is open :D
ScubbaSteve  +   397d ago
My friend had to keep reloading the server list till he could join my server but he eventually got in.
ajames347  +   398d ago
Me too! I can't wait to see what kind of future content we'll get.
Abriael  +   398d ago
First thing is gonna be the Crystal tower, raid zone. Can't wait for that.
Keith Olbermann  +   398d ago
Preordered ps3 version from amazon. Cant wait. Gonna get ps4 version when that is released.

I wish it didn't have the sub fee, I like the game from what I've played in the past 2 weeks beta, but I don't think I can put in the effort or time to justify the monthly sub. They'd get way more sales with a standard fee.

I personally don't have a problem paying what basically amounts to 40 something cents a day for something I enjoy. I am happy it's not f2p or p2p

I just started but I can already tell the game is soooo much better then it was then when it first came out. They actually have a real tutorial now LOL.
Goldenarmz  +   398d ago
Are people on PS3 able to play with people on PC or is ps3 players only going to be with ps3 players and pc with pc?
Abriael  +   398d ago
yep, it's cross platform, PS4 too when it'll be released next year. Everyone's on the same servers.
Goldenarmz  +   398d ago
Sweet! one of my friends is getting it for PC but i kinda wanna get it for PS3 instead. So well still be able to play together.
Biggest  +   397d ago
You seem to be up on the news, Abriael.

Was I correct in thinking that characters used from beta 1-3 would be erased? Is that for new characters only?

I ask because my legacy character is still lvl50 with all its worn gear. I'd love to keep my guy, but I don't want to get my hopes up only to have them dashed in a few weeks.
Jikla  +   397d ago
@biggest. You keep your legacy character at release I'm sure of that. But I think I've read that if everything goes as planned you will keep your beta char at early release.
Biggest  +   397d ago
Much appreciated, Jikla.

Give a /wave if you run past Biggest on the Hyperion server.
crazyeightz  +   398d ago
Saw a lot of news about this game lately. I might be interested in trying but before I do, is there any subscription based fee to play it?
Abriael  +   398d ago
yep. 12.99 a month
crazyeightz  +   398d ago
Thanks
Bhuahahaha  +   398d ago
yeah i really want to play this one too. but that 13 bucks +$60 or 40 for the game is to much for me already. yup $13 isnt a big deal but add it up to several other monthly bills will really gonna hurt my wallet.
AirJohnston  +   398d ago
I got an email a few weeks ago saying I got accepted into the PS3 beta and they said they would send me a message when it goes up, but I haven't gotten anything from them since.
Abriael  +   398d ago
If the mail was really acceptance, it should have included a link for you to register and the relevant codes. Otherwise it wasn't acceptance, but just proof of registration.

Tomorrow's gonna be open for everyone anyway.

Reborn  +   398d ago
So tomorrow, a DL will be on PSN store, for all? I got the promotion code, currently playing it, but I wanted to know for those who didn't get a promotion code.

Thanks.
AirJohnston  +   397d ago
Yeah I just found it yesterday, unfortunately I'm visiting my brother until Monday so I don't even know if I'll be able to play it............................ .........
dcj0524  +   398d ago
Stop teasing me );. I have to cancle my pre-order because $13 a month is too much. Dom you Square. This was my most anticipated game.
Kyosuke_Sanada  +   398d ago
Troll much, most of the recent articles about Final Fantasy have you saying the same thing.

Can't pay the fine then you won't enjoy the time.....
dcj0524  +   398d ago
Yeah. I'm a troll because I'm sad I can't afford the monthly fee of one of my most wanted games. I think I commented on 1 other one saying the same thing. To each their own. Have a nice day.
R_aVe_N  +   398d ago
trollololol
e-p-ayeaH  +   398d ago
you pay for quality pal.
modesign  +   397d ago
Explain planet side 2. Free memo that is one of the greatest looking MMOs
worldwidegaming  +   398d ago
Just pay for a few months. Or just a month. Who says you need to pay every month! Enjoy life while you can!
Blackcanary  +   398d ago
i've been on it since 11am in the UK
fsfsxii  +   398d ago
I really wanna get into this game. But the registration process turns me off every time -__-
Stsonic  +   397d ago
yes it is not working even with registered accounts :/
fsfsxii  +   397d ago
I registered with 2 accounts. Got the codes but they tell me that they've already been used
andibandit  +   397d ago
I was sent 2 extra codes for some weird reson, just gave them to a couple of friends.
Reborn  +   397d ago
Yeah, one of my codes claimed to be already used.

But luckily, I signed up on two accounts, lol.
Kamikaze135  +   397d ago
Been playing open beta and man this game is awesome! Definitely worth the monthly fee, imo.
Dagobert  +   397d ago
I still regret why I took so long to pre-order the collectors edition. They're all sold out now.
belac09  +   397d ago
i know i tried to change my pre order and they said they sold out the day before.
hairy  +   397d ago
Been playin the beta all day, didn`t think i would like it, I`m pleasantly surprised, it`s quite good :)
Dagobert  +   397d ago
Yeah it is pretty good. Usually as soon as I try the combat in an MMO I can tell if I'm gonna like it or not, and usually it just feels a bit boring. With FFXIV I actually enjoyed it.
Avery  +   397d ago
DOA - tried the beta awful controls
nope111  +   397d ago
The amount of quality the game has is well worth the monthly sub, also, Arcanist rocks! seriously, their battle animation is the best! my only complaint is the lack of a PSN card option to pay subs. I'll wait for the PS4 version in hopes they implement such payment method by then, since i don't like using debit/credit.
Dagobert  +   397d ago
My only complaints about this game is that the races look stupid besides the midget one. Also when doing quests it's really not that clear on where to go next.
Frodosmugins  +   397d ago
Then your doing something wrong cos I never got lost doing quests!
you can track quests and even click on the task and it will show on the big map.. let alone there are small arrows on mini map to show you which way!
fsfsxii  +   397d ago
So the code they gave me a couple of hours ago got accepted, but u;m not sure for which beta is it.
Stsonic  +   397d ago
this is so annoying I create a new account which takes 5 minutes then it tells me to login to the website with my beta code and then when I try to login it says my details don't match. I have done this 4 times now.

All I want to do is play the open beta geez

Ok how do I get the beta for ps3 I have been looking for away but can't seem to find where to register or anything to play the open beta for realm reborn ?? What am I doing wrong to get it??
PersonaCat  +   397d ago
This game is so freaking fun. Really feels like an old school Final Fantasy. My only real problem with the game is that mics aren't being supported.

Slightly offtopic, but when it comes to FFXIV information, Dualshockers has been awesome. It's easily become one of my favorite sites for news.
Embolado  +   397d ago
Anyone going to be on Excaliber server feel free to tag me, always looking for a group, damn I forgot my char name, well I'll update later then when I am not at work.
Drabent  +   397d ago
O.o can't get in this morning, server OvErLoAd><
modesign  +   397d ago
When the pay to play is implemented then the servers will have low traffic
Kte  +   397d ago
Talking shit I see... well im already 20 lol increase the cap and open the fight yoshi :D
dmitrijs88  +   392d ago
already got my pre order code and ready to rumble!
