Final Fantasy 14 fans who bought a new PS4 may feel left out when it comes to FF14, but we have known for some time that the popular title will be headed for the PlayStation 4 eventually, with a beta available as soon as the console was available for sale. Sadly that didn’t happen. We had no word on when exactly the title would officially release on the PlayStation 4, until now.
The good news is that Square Enix has announced that April 2014 is when the MMO will be available on Sony’s new video game console. Square Enix made the announcement during the PlayStation Awards, where the company received a “Special Award,”. That award was created this year to recognize the company’s “outstanding titles on the overall combination based on the following attributes: originality, buzz-worthiness, influence and performance.”
Fans of FF14 will be able to get their first look at the title running on the new console through a scheduled live broadcast on December 14 at 4AM PT / 7AM ET. Final Fantasy 14’s producer and director Naoki Yoshida will be showcasing the PS4 version along with a major 2.1 patch, which is expected to launch on December 17. So you can get a good look at the game ahead of time. As for the beta for Final Fantasy 14 on the PlayStation 4, Square Enix will make it available on February 22, 2014.
