fans may have been dismayed by the delay
of the Final Fantasy XIV
beta yesterday, but be dismayed no more! Square Enix has announced that the "critical bugs" have been exterminated and the North American beta will actually begin today
at 7:00pm Pacific Time (10:00pm Eastern / Joystiq Time).
Meanwhile, the European beta (available in the UK, France and Germany) will begin September 2 at 2:00 GMT and the Japanese beta is set to start on September 2 at 11:00 JST. Once the beta begins, just head over to the beta portal
to start the registration process.
