Final Fantasy XIV beta application site goes live

Prologue video for A Realm Reborn also released

Players keen to get an early taste of Square Enix’s Final Fantasy XIV reboot, subtitled A Realm Reborn, can do so by signing up for the beta.

Following the conclusion of alpha tests in December, The Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn beta test application site has gone live, with beta testing expected to take place in mid-February.

Any Australian gamers wanting to try the game before its release can sign up at the European portal.

A Realm Reborn is a retooling of Final Fantasy XIV following the lacklustre response the publisher received to the original release of the game in 2010, which led to a switch in development teams.

The new game aims to address the criticisms of the earlier release by making use of a new engine, better server structures, reworked gameplay, and streamlined interface.

As well as applying for the beta test, players can see how the game is shaping up with a newly released prologue video.

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
