Final Fantasy XIV Beta Starts March 11
Because there’s not been enough Final Fantasy news lately…
“Square Enix’s “VanaFest 2010” is taking place today (where they’ve already announced three new add-ons for Final Fantasy XI), and while its name suggests it’s all about celebrating their current MMO, they still slipped some exciting Final Fantasy XIV news in as well: They’ve announced the beta test will begin on March 11.
It’ll be a closed beta test available to only a small number of invitees at first (Square Enix took applications back in December), but the beta will naturally expand over time. “Those who were not selected in this drawing, fear not, for there will be other opportunities to come,” said Square Enix in the announcement (via Joystiq). The beta will also only be on the PC at first.
And even if you don’t get into the beta later on, you won’t have to wait too much longer to get your hands on Final Fantasy XIV — it’s set for release later this year.”
It’s typical, isn’t it? You don’t get a Final Fantasy game for ages, then two come along at once!
