Final Fantasy XIV coming to steam?


Yeah, seems that way

If you were one of those people waiting for permission from your Steam overlords to purchase a copy of Final Fantasy XIV, you're in luck. In a recent notice relating to server maintenance, it notes that additional "worlds" or servers would be added to in preparation for the upcoming launch on PlayStation 4 and Steam. I suppose this shouldn't be much of a surprise, especially following the recent re-release of Final Fantasy VIII

In related news, it's been revealed that PlayStation 4 users will be able to play Final Fantasy XIV online without a PlayStation Plus subscription -- that said, you'll still need to purchase a subscription for Final Fantasy XIV, even if you already subscribe to PlayStation Plus. Considering your need a Plus account to access most mutiplayer content on the next-gen console, you'll probably end up nickle-and-dime'd to death any way. The PlayStation 4 beta test begins this February.
