Great news for those looking to set foot in the world of Hydaelyn as quickly as possible on PS4, as the Final Fantasy XIV beta has now become available to download. This comes four days before it was set to make its debut on the console. Unfortunately, however, the beta will not be playable until its intended launch on Saturday. It was most likely added now so it could be put up along with the weekly PSN update.
Why this is good news, however, is because there will likely be a mad rush to download the beta come this Saturday, so those who download now will get a jump on their friends (competition?) and download at substantially higher speeds.
The Final Fantasy XIV beta is free for everybody who owns a PS4.
