Square Enix to offer free current-gen to next-gen switch on Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn

Square Enix has said that they will be offering those that own Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn on PlayStation 3 an upgrade to PlayStation 4 completely free.

The beta for the game on PlayStation 4 won’t be available until February 22nd next year, the same day that PlayStation 4 is being made available in Japan.

A statement has confirmed that you will be able to “carry over character data and continue playing on the new platform.”

Those who are currently playing the PS3 version of FFXIV: ARR will not have to re-buy the game on PS4 and will be able to transition to playing on PS4 at no additional cost.

They will even be able to carry over their character data and continue playing on the new platform. Further information on the PS4 beta tests and the PS4 version transition service will be released soon and we hope everyone will have a great experience with FFXIV: ARR.

A rather generous offer from Square Enix there, we have seen a few game stores such as GameStop, Amazon and GAME UK offering upgrades for the next-gen games but they haven’t been completely free, lets see how this works out for Square Enix.
