The Assault on the Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn Open Beta Servers Continues, Two New Worlds Created

on August 17, 2013 7:16 PM

Today the open beta of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn has finally been made free for all and things have been rather crowded, with more than 120,000 concurrent connections reported by Square Enix itself.

Heavy traffic prompted the developer to open two new Japanese servers in the morning (Typhon and Ultima), and this evening things are getting heated again on the western side, forcing Square Enix to throttle character creation on all the North American and European servers and open two new ones, Faerie and Exodus.

This brings the open beta of the game to a total of 44 servers, 22 for Japan and 22 for Europe and North America, pretty much all of which are filled to the brim.

That’s definitely not too shabby for a game not many would have bet on just a year ago.
