The PS4 version of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn bridges the gap between the scaled down PS3 version and the fully featured PC version. The screenshots released today by Square Enix show off how beautiful the game looks on the PS4 at 1080p resolution, the game will also support Remote Play via the PS Vita and make use of the touchpad on the Dualshock 4 controller.
The Standard Edition ($39.99) and Collector’s Edition ($59.99) will be available on April 14, 2014. Owners of the PS3 version will have the option to upgrade to the PS4 version for free.
If you’re looking to experience the game ahead of launch, there will be two beta phases you can participate in:
Phase 1: February 22 – March 3
Phase 2: April 4 – April 7
Hopefully FFXIV can maintain the reputation of the series while the various iterations of FFXIII do all they can to tarnish it.
