Some of the highlights do include free upgrade from PS3 to PS4 (conditions to apply but they are not that bad), a free all access Beta is on its way and of course the fact the PS4 is getting a Final Fantasy game so early in its life cycle is great news all by itself.
Square Enix Ltd., today announced the PlayStation®4 system version of FINAL FANTASY® XIV: A REALM REBORN™ will be released 14th April, 2014. Official service will begin on the same day.
- Pre-orders start today, 27th January, 2014.
