    So, its finally here, square fans gather round.

    FINAL FANTASY 14 BETA IS OUT!

    I've been waiting for this moment, the even better thing is the character you create will still be available if you play on the same server post-release!

    You can get the beta here

    Cheers!! :toast:

    I'm just old school, I suppose. I can't bear to sit through 10 minute cutscenes to get to play for about 5. Gimme the FF games for Nintendo.

    Welcome to the internets, wear your thickest skin...
    Its free to try like it or lump it your choice.

    The download was going slow so i just closed it, the client is 100mb or so but it downloads everything from the client i think?

    I reported this post because it is not fair. :mad:








    Just kidding, but that is messed up. I pre-ordered FFXIII as well, punched in the pre-order key, and didn't get a beta key. What gives Square-Enix?!

    Sucks that you guys did not get a code the first time around, thats a bit of a dick move on Squares part.

    Couldn't resist its worth it.

    Oh well im signing up anyway cant argue with getting your hands on a new game way before retail for free, let alone something that's likely going to be Pay to Play.

    you can go to fileplanet and grab the beta downloader let it run a bit and then start downloading the 5 gb patch file manually (it's a torrent). no idea if it will work to patch up to the release, but better than sitting here idle

    anyone know how to download the torrent faster, im gettin like 10KB on it

    could it be that my ISP is just being douches and capping my bandwidth for torrents or somethin or is it everyone.
