You can still get in on the action, too, by applying at this link. Phase 3 is coming later this summer.
Phase 2 will run across weekends throughout April, and this current beta is exclusive to PC. If you’re successful in your application to get in on the closed beta, you’ll be able to eplore the forest environments of Gridania, as well as enjoy gamepad support and Chocobo mounts (yay). Joining this beta phase there will also be full Active Time Events.
In future beta phases, Square Enix say they will be bringing the PlayStation 3 version in, and lots more content, too. Again, you can apply for the current phase by clicking here.
While you wait patiently to see if you’ve gotten in, take a look at the first PS3 screenshots, and then (below) a recent trailer.
