Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn Gets A Release Date

Final Fantasy XIV
Square Enix announced that Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn and Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn Collector’s Edition are now available for pre-order. In addition, the Japanese company revealed that the game is scheduled for release on August 27th for both PS3 and PC. Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn will require a monthly fee, starting at £7.69 / €10.99.
Naoki Yoshida said:
“We have endeavoured to make the game affordable so that adventurers will be able to experience the vibrant world of Eorzea. We have also prepared a collector’s edition version of the game, which includes a veritable assortment of premium items.”
Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn and Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn Collector’s Edition are also available to pre-order as digital downloads from selected retailers and the Square Enix Store for Windows PC. The digital download of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn Collector’s Edition will include all of the following in-game bonus items: Helm of Light, Baby Behemoth Minion, Coeurl Mount and Behemoth Barding.

Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn is a standalone title; new adventurers will not need to purchase the original Final Fantasy XIV title in order to play Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. Owners of the original Final Fantasy XIV title will be able to download the Windows PC version of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn for free.

Since there is a monthly fee, we are pretty sure that the game will fail once again. After all, there are already a lot of F2P games at this moment, meaning that FF XIV: A Realm Reborn will have to be the best MMORPG ever to justify a monthly subscription.
