OP  1/29/13 4:07:49 PM#1

Last week, Square Enix announced that the first round of beta testing for Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn will kick off in February. Today we take a look at the prospect of beta testing and what it all means. Read on and then add your voice to the comments.

With 2012 and FFXIV 1.0 now things of the past, discussion of what was is for historians while the rest of us look ahead.  The upcoming year promises to be an interesting one for Final Fantasy MMO fans.  We will soon see the Realm Reborn beta, which should take us through the first half of the year.  Following that we will see something relatively unheard of in the industry; an entire rebuild and relaunch of an MMO franchise.

Read more of Ryahl Smith's Eorzea Reborn: In Anticipation of Beta.

Other gaming companies have no project plan at all so you were saying?

It is? I just assumed this was a  broad sketch meant for public consumption. What exactly is weak about it? Also bear in mind that this is a reboot, not a game being built from the ground up.

How not to sell me on a game: "And most people that make it past the tutorial seem to appreciate [x game's] uniqueness, even if they don't find it fun."

Ncsoft, En Masse, etc... learn with Square-Enix:

 

- Beta in the same day for America, Europe and Asia;

- worldwide release;

- patches in the same day for America, Europe and Asia.

BTW...what you do in Beta 4 carries over to launch... there's no wipe after Beta 4.  If you get into Beta 4, that's the official launch for you... which is a month or more earlier than the "official release."

 

As a legacy member.. this pleases me :)

Do you honestly think that that is all they have??  What is released as part of a media blitz and what goes on behind the scenes is completely different.  I work on relatively small projects compared to an MMO and I can tell you what we present in briefings to VIPs is nothing compared to internal documents.

 Lets be a bit realistic in bashing a company and bash on actual issues.

They are coming for you!

Open Beta is considered Beta4 in that table you see there. I follow every little or big info about the game I might be the biggest fan of all kept playing even when all critisized the game.

Go to lodestone forum and find it there is just too much info for me to go dig that out now.

I would like to know as well.  I don't normally play much in betas, other than to get a feel.  However, if they don't wipe, I'll definitely be there.

They are coming for you!

It's only for 1.0 players everyone else who does not have a 1.0 account would be wipe just like a normal beta. Us 1.0 members get early access and we can use our old 1.0 chars and remake them in beta4 but this is not set in stone yoshi-p said this may or may not happen.
