Its currently closed beta. Im not sure if they will go Open since this is their second attempt at putting Final Fantasy 14 out there. I do have to admit that the game has changed ALOT since i played it the first time around and its much better. I really like this Final Fantasy as an MMO and i disliked FF11.
I signed up for the beta a long time ago i kinda forgot about it.
Well i was correct that it is shared servers. I was playing on my PC yesterday and now i am playing the same character on my PS3. I was worried how they are going to let you bind so many skills just using the PS3 controler BUT they went really innovative with it (Im impressed atleast). I can cast 16 different skills really quick.
I tell you guys what... grinding is alot more acceptable when lying in bed and playing on a big ass tv with a wireless controller.
