Square Enix has announced that the PlayStation 3 version of MMO Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn will release on August 27. The game will require a monthly subscription fee of £7.69/€10.99.

Gamers who pre-order A Realm Reborn will get early access to the realm of Eorzea, a Cait Sith Doll Minion, and a Mog Cap. If you want even more goodies, then the Collector's Edition might be more your thing.

FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn Collector’s Edition details

  • Art of Eorzea – An 80-page hardcover art book featuring never-before-seen concept art.
  • The Waning of the Sixth Sun – A special bonus video disc that takes a cinematic look at the events leading up to the realm being reborn.
  • Sounds of Eorzea – An album that features musical scores by renowned FINAL FANTASY series composers.
  • Art Cards – Five collectable character cards.
  • In-game bonus items – Helm of Light, Baby Behemoth Minion, Coeurl Mount and Behemoth Barding Analysis

What do you think about the monthly subscription fee? Is Square Enix asking for too much in a world where most MMOs are now free to play?

I agree, It wouldnt be so bad if it I could take the disc and play it on the PS4 but of course no backwards compatibility.

IMO the problem isn't the fact that it's P2P - rather the fact that it's being released on the PS3, and not PS4. But you're right, (to my dismay) the industry is moving away from the subscription model atm, so yeah not sure it's a good idea at this point.

Having said that, FFXI is still going strong dispite a clunky dated interface, and, I loved FFXIV when it first launched, and atm I'm hearing nothing but good things leaking from the testers, so... who knows.

Releasing a subscription MMO on a console at this point is possibly the worst timing, ever. They should have done a deal with Sony and made it a PS4 launch title with the first 90 days free.
