Open beta start date is expected soon.
I got an email from Square today and it told me to make sure I was signed up for the Final Fantasy Newsletter because information about the open beta will be coming out soon. Some Jimmy claims it's starting August 31, but he lists no source.
The email says "Get your PC up and running, because the open beta is just around the corner! To receive all the latest updates, click on VISIT SITE and register for the official FINAL FANTASY XIV newsletter. Also, make sure you check out the latest trailer in the MEDIA section."
*Update* Beta date possibly confirmed with this tweet from @FF_XIV_EN. So this is probably what is happening. Honestly though, we don't even know if that is an official twitter account. Fuck it! Irrelevant. The time has come. I can't wait. *end update*
Make sure you end up on this page and sign for the newsletter if you wanna know what's up with the Final Fantasy XIV open beta. http://na.square-enix.com/reg/ff14/
I just want to know if it's going to run on my machine at this point.
