Square-Enix accepting Final Fantasy XIV BETA applications
Wow! SE has opened Final Fantasy XIV to beta testers (for the PC at least). You can send your applications to access the Final Fantasy XIV beta via this sign up page. The requirements, they’re right here:
- Be at least 18 years old
- Have plenty of hard drive space
- An internet connection (ever played an MMO without connecting to the net? :D)
- You must be fluent in Japanese, English, French or German for the purpose of bug reports
- Have a Square Enix ID account. You can get one by signing up 😀
Do note that this beta is for the PC version of Final Fantasy XIV, if you want to opt in on the PS3 beta, you need to wait awhile as Square Enix assures that it’s coming along. If you somehow didn’t get picked for the beta, don’t worry. SE says there will be “several rounds of tester selection, with the total number of participants increasing each time.” All you need to do is wait like patient little kids 😀
If you do decide to hit the registration link, please bear with the stability of the server. Everyone seems to want a shot at playing the beta 😀
