BlogThe Final Fantasy XIV Open Beta is up now (and has been for a little over 7 hours), head over to http://entry.ffxiv.com/ to sign up. If you're like me and couldn't get a key all day due to server congestion, you might want to consider skipping the line just as I did.
Check out this forum thread from FFXIV Core, as it allowed me to easily obtain a key within minutes: http://www.ffxivcore.com/topic/13016-link-to-get-beta-key-legit/
I'm downloading yet again another update to the client, then unfortunately real life calls (I have a university assignment due tomorrow). Expect rantings and screenshots of some form to appear within the coming days, my desire to get back into an MMO without ever touching World of Warcraft again currently rests on this game.
