Final Fantasy XIV PS5 Beta

The next big step for immensely popular MMO Final Fantasy XIV is to get up and running on PlayStation 5. But before it gets an official release on Sony's next-gen system, Square Enix is giving everyone a chance to get in on the action with an open beta.

The beta will begin on the 13th April. Again, anyone can participate ā€” all you need to do is download the beta from the PlayStation Store and get stuck in. If you're new, you can sample all of the content that's available in the game's trial version. Those who are already part of Final Fantasy XIV can simply log in with their existing account details, carrying across all of their progress. Easy!

What's more, the open beta will stretch on right up until the full launch of Final Fantasy XIV on PS5. We don't know when that's happening just yet, but the release date will be determined by the success of this beta testing period. We imagine that players won't be waiting very long.

Final Fantasy XIV on PS5 will boast a number of improvements, including "lightning fast" load times, native 4K resolution, a 60 frames-per-second frame-rate, 3D audio, and haptic feedback through the DualSense controller.
