'Final Fantasy XIV' Open Beta To Resume This Evening

Final Fantasy XIV open beta

"Critical bugs" managed to delay the "Final Fantasy XIV" open beta PC test this week, but Square Enix believes they have everything together now, and a mere day after it was originally supposed to launch, the developers believe they're ready to open up for the masses.

"Along with the completion on investigation and correction of the critical issue, we have decided to begin 'Final Fantasy XIV' Open Beta Test on Sep. 1, 2010 at 19:00 (PDT)," an update on FFXIV.com revealed.

And despite an oddly worded message, it appears that new codes will be available for those looking to get in on the action. You made need to plug your info into their system and check with Square Enix to find out for sure though.

"Starting on Sep. 1, 2010 at 19:00 (PDT), acquisition of registration code required for 'Final Fantasy XIV' Open Beta Test will be available," the note stated.

All I know is that if they managed to put their heads together and get through this stumbling block, such ingenuity should go a long way toward overcoming memory issues and making sure PlayStation 3 users also get to play "FFXIV" next March.

So check in there when you get off of work tonight, and you may have a pleasant MMO-related surprise waiting to welcome you home from a tough day at the office — XP limitations and all.
