Final Fantasy 14 Is Coming To Xbox


Game Surpasses 30 Million Players

We’ve been waiting for an Xbox release for over a decade, and it’s finally almost here! Final Fantasy 14 will be released on Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S in the near future, with the Open Beta starting in February 2024. During a recent Fan Festival in Tokyo, it was actually suggested that the Open Beta on Xbox might begin on February 21st, 2024, though plans can change and it could be slightly earlier or later than that.

Square Enix stated during the live-streamed Final Fantasy XIV Fan Festival in Tokyo this weekend that the Xbox open beta of the game is currently scheduled to begin around February 21. According to the announcement, the open beta date is not set in stone and could be moved a few days behind or ahead of February 21. The full Xbox release of Final Fantasy XIV Online on the Xbox platform is still planned for the spring of 2024.

Because it’s a beta, we’re assuming that all Xbox players will be invited to try Final Fantasy 14 for free this February, with the full release set for “Spring 2024” and likely a paid release with a free trial option – just like on PS5.

It’s also a good time for an Xbox version, as the game recently passed 30 million registered players and is gearing up to release its fifth expansion pack, “Dawntrail,” in Summer 2024, which will add a slew of new features. You can watch the Dawntrail trailer above, and we’ll go over 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┬áto 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.”

Dawntrail’s 5-minute cinematic trailer showcased what players can expect to see in the expansion. Tural, a new continent to explore, will include new cities such as Tuliyollal and Solution Nine, as well as new enemies, a new raid series, new dungeons, and other features. With the expansion, players can also try out two new jobs (Viper and Pictomancer) as well as a new playable race, the female Hrothgar. The expansion will be available for Windows, Mac, PS4, PS5, and, yes, Xbox Series X|S consoles in the summer of 2024.
