Final Fantasy XIV Open Beta Goes Live



Via Square's FFXIV Twitter feed:


“The FINAL FANTASY XIV Open Beta Test begins on Wednesday, September 1, 2010 at 2:00 (GMT)! We hope to see everyone participate!”


We'd recommend keeping an eye on that feed so you can keep track of beta timings. Final Fantasy XIV releases on September 30th. When it does, you’ll be able to transfer your character’s name — that’s name, not the character itself — from the beta into the full game. You can read up on how to do this here. (PAL folk go here)
