We've been waiting over a decade for an Xbox release, but it's finally almost time! Final Fantasy 14 will be coming to Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S in the near future, with the Open Beta now officially set to begin in February 2024.

During a recent Fan Festival in Tokyo, it was actually suggested that February 21st, 2024 might be the start date of this Open Beta on Xbox, although plans can change and it could be slightly earlier or later than that.

As it's a beta, we're assuming all Xbox players will be invited to try Final Fantasy 14 for free this February, after which the full launch is scheduled for "Spring 2024" and will likely be a paid release with a free trial option - just like on PS5.

It's great timing for an Xbox version as well, as the game has just surpassed 30 million registered players, and is currently preparing to launch its fifth expansion pack called "Dawntrail" in Summer 2024, adding a whole bunch of new features. You can check out the trailer for Dawntrail above, and we'll throw more details about the base game below.

"Take part in an epic and ever-changing FINAL FANTASY. Experience all the hallmarks of the best-selling franchise - an unforgettable story, exhilarating battles, and a myriad of diverse and captivating environments to explore.

Party up with friends or play solo! Experience all the main story dungeons on your own by calling upon NPC allies to fight by your side."
