Final Fantasy 14 is finally coming to the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S. Starting February 21, an open beta will become available for interested parties of would-be adventurers, that’ll be totally free to download and play without the need for a subscription. The catch? If you already have a Final Fantasy 14 account, you’ll be locked out from this fresh-start release.
The news was released this morning, via a post on the Final Fantasy 14 website. In the post, Square Enix explains the process you’ll need to follow in order to access the beta once it launches, as well as elaborating on what manner of subscription you’ll need to play. For the open beta – that figure is absolutely nothing.
The article explains: “The Free Trial version, including the open beta test, will not require an Xbox Game Pass (Core or Ultimate) plan to play. However, the full Xbox Series X|S version will require an Xbox Game Pass (Core or Ultimate) plan to play.” So, no cost of entry for those curious about this much-praised MMO.
