Final Fantasy XIV open beta next month

Final Fantasy XIV‘s beta is all grown up; after three rounds of closed testings, the MMO’s getting ready to flaunt its goods at the public, with an open beta scheduled to begin early next month.

“The FINAL FANTASY XIV Beta Test Phase 3 will end on August 25,” the game’s official Twitter account has informed today, “then move to the Open Beta Test in early September.”

That’s the extend of the information however — an enthusiastic “Get ready!” notwithstanding — so we’ll have to sit tight for an exact date.

The full game itself is scheduled to launch on PC on September 30th (worldwide), and the PS3 next March.
