Final Fantasy XIV Dated

[tab:FFXIV Release date/subscription fees]

Square Enix has announced the released date for their upcoming mmorpg Final Fantasy XIV.

First the bad news for PS3 fans: FFXIV won’t be hitting the PS3 before March 2011. :(  This is a bit dissappointing after Square Enix had stated in the past how their plans were for a simultaneous release of both the PS3 and PC versions. But it looks like that wasn’t meant to be.

On to the good news: The PC version FFXIV will be releasing this September 30th, worldwide, with a Collector’s Edition planned that’ll hit European retailers on September 22nd. No news if the CE is just EU only.

Gamers can expect to pay a monthly subscription fee of $12.99/£8.99/€12.99, and an extra  $3.00/£2.10/€3.00 per month  for any additional characters. This is similar to how things worked in FFXI but in that game the extra characters were only priced at $1. Also unlike FFXI there will be a maximum of eight characters allowed on one account.

Details on pricing for the PS3 version will be revealed later.
