A Realm Reborn open beta is now live for PS3 and PC.
Phase 4 of the beta for the Final Fantasy MMO is now ready, after 24 hours of being available to beta testers who played Phase 3 or earlier. It's an open beta, so you can join up as long as you have a Square Enix account . If you can encourage friends and family to sign up for one, they can get in on the action as well.
Of course, it helps if you've already signed up and got the client, but you haven't, never fear. The beta tester registration site is taking registrations now and you can play until 2am Monday PST - that’s 7pm tomorrow night AEST.
Be warned, the client download is 7GB (for my PC version, at least), so you may not be able to download it before the beta closes if you're on a slow connection. However, if you do manage to get it up and running, any characters you create won’t be deleted, so you’ll have it prepared for the final release on August 27.
