Square Enix has announced that the Final Fantasy XIV open beta test will now begin at 2am GMT on Thursday, September 2.

Starting at 2am, registration codes required for the Final Fantasy XIV Open Beta Test will become available on the Final Fantasy XIV Open Beta Test Application Site.

The open beta won't last too long as the game's set to launch later that month. Those picking up the Collector's Edition will be able to embark on their online journey from September 22, while everyone else will have to wait until September 30 before they can enter the realm of Eorzea.
