In news that is sure to please the big wigs at Square Enix, and all of those who may have doubted XIV’s ability to mount a comeback after the original launch, it was announced today that Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn has seen 1 million people sign up to be a part of its beta. That number is sort of huge. Right now, A Realm Reborn is in its third testing phase, with a final open beta scheduled for sometime before the game’s release (we’re guessing next month). For interested parties, Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn launches on August 27 for PlayStation 3 and PC. We’re currently involved in the beta and are loving every second of it. So be on the lookout for our very own preview of how things are coming along sometime in the near future.
