In Final Fantasy XIV by Gahoo

Hello everyone! Pinurabi here, this time writing from sunny San Francisco, where the media tour has kicked off in fine fashion.

FFXIV: A Realm Reborn Beta Test – Now Recruiting!

In Final Fantasy XIV by Gahoo

In preparation for the upcoming launch of FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn on Windows PC and PlayStation 3, we are looking for enthusiastic players to take part in the beta test.

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 FFXIV 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.

Proceed to the beta test application site.
