Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn’s Beta Test Still Limited to Weekends

When Square Enix published the schedule for the current beta test phase of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn they didn’t specify an end date, leading everyone (me included) to believe that we had finally reached a stage in which the beta would continue 24/7 at least for a while.

Unfortunately this wasn’t to be, as the development team just announced that since the stability of the duty finder has been confirmed, the beta will close again, tomorrow at 2 AM PDT (9 AM GMT). It looks like we’re still stuck to testing just on weekends, at least for the time being.

If you want to get a few last hours of gameplay and testing before the beta closes (presumably to reopen again next friday), you may want to hurry.

    Boooo. Well, that pretty much also “confirms” something else – that we’ll have at least one more weekend of phase 3, since they said near the end of phase 3 they would leave the servers open longer.

    I’m just glad the Duty Finder works well. I can’t wait til my progress becomes tied to the release client.
