Final Fantasy XIV beta application period ending, open beta applications beginning shortly

Those yet hopeful to get in on Final Fantasy XIV‘s on-going beta best look alive; Square Enix will cease taking applications starting next week, 08:00 A.M. (GMT) on Monday, August 16.

The heads up comes from the game’s Twitter account which also informs that tester selection will continue past Monday’s deadline, so should you not receive an invite from Square by then, hope remains.

Applications for the open PC beta on the other hand are just about to begin; “in the near future,” they say.
