Final Fantasy XIV PS3 Players Will Upgrade to PS4 Version for Free, PS4 Beta Starting in February

on September 9, 2013 5:17 AM

Square Enix just made a rather groundbreaking announcement that affects those that purchased the PS3 version of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn and plan to upgrade to the PS4 version when it’ll be released.

According to the announcement, PS3 players will be able to upgrade to the PS4 version for free, effectively removing the need to purchase the game for the new platform. Unfortunately this doesn’t seem to include those that purchased the PC version of the game.

I know many that were holding out on purchasing the PS3 version in order to wait for the PS4 version, but now there’s no more reason to wait.

In addition to this, the beta of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn will begin on the same day of the Japanese launch of the PS4 in Japan, on February the 22nd, 2014.

More details are expected to be disclosed soon, as Square Enix strengthens its server structure and equipment in order to be ready for the PS4 release of the game.
