Square Enix has announced that the second phase of closed beta testing for Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn on PC is now underway. Running across weekends throughout April, those lucky enough to get into this early beta phase will be able to explore the rich forest environments of the city state of Gridania, with new features such as PC gamepad support and personal Chocobo mounts, as well as brand new Full Active Time Events, now joining the beta fold.
Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn has been rebuilt from the ground up, and centers on the core concept of rebirth, featuring a new world to explore and storyline to experience, that promises to offer visually-stunning graphics and game design that appeal to both Windows PC and PS3 players.
Square Enix also stated that there’s lots more to come from the beta testing phases, with the PS3 version and a huge amount of new content and environments to explore arriving with beta phase 3 later this summer.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
