During the 12th edition of the Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn Letter from the Producer Live, Producer and Director Naoki Yoshida announced the release date of the PS4 version of the game, and showcased the lovely box art by Akihiko Yoshida, that you can see at the bottom of the post.
The game will be released on April 14th, and pre-orders will be available starting January 27th.
A collector’s edition will also be made available and will include all the items that came in the previous collector’s editions for PS3 and PC, plus a Fat Chocobo Mount and a Wind-up Moogle Minion, that will also be gifted for free to anyone that previously purchased the PC and PS3 collector’s editions. That’s actually a very sleek way to handle the bonuses without leaving out those that already purchased the game.
It was also confirmed that the beta will start on February 22nd and will be available from day one to every PS4 user around the world, as we already knew.
In partly related news (or more precisely rumors), today we also learned that the PS4 version is possibly being tweaked to run at 60 frames per second. You can read all about it here before you check out the beautiful PS4 box art and the collector’s edition bonuses below.
