Square Enix took to Twitter to reveal that the game will get an open beta starting on April 13th.

Following the beta, the game will have a free trial version available for download.

Final Fantasy patch version 5.5

Final Fantasy XIV’s patch version 5.5 is looking very promising. The patch includes two main parts. Firstly, on April 13th, the third chapter of YoRHa: Dark Apocalypse designed by Yosuke Saito and Yoko Taro. This patch will release alongside the open beta.

Square Enix described the upcoming ‘Death Unto Dawn’ event on their site. According to them, “The Scions have finally succeeded in discovering a cure for tempering, which should prove instrumental in allowing the Eorzean Alliance and the land’s beast tribes to settle their differences.

“Prospects of peace may soon fall to ruin, however, as Fandaniel and the Telophoroi scheme to recreate the Final Days, and ominous towers rise in all corners of the realm. With the servants of chaos amassing at every turn, will the Scions uncover their plot before it is too late?”
