Square Enix has begun its preparations for the upcoming beta for Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn by opening up registration for the beta across the globe.
Those that have been waiting to sign up can click here (or here if you’re in Europe) for the application to get an early chance to see the new game and to help testing it in preparation of the release later this year.
To celebrate the beginning of the registration for the beta, Square Enix also released the full CG opening video of the game, that you can see below. Not only it’s fantastic, but it also shows that a few relevant characters survived the “end of an era” (wearing some interesting and rather mysterious accessories and a new eye-shaped mark on their clothes, no less).
Remember that if you’re interested in Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, but you missed its predecessor, or you didn’t manage to finish the main storyline, you can check our story recap column that starts here.
