Final Fantasy XIV - Korean server braces official launch, offering Open Beta from August 19th. Final Fantasy XIV is a massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG), developed and published by Square Enix. You will need to get yourself an IP address in Korea, and once you have that, you are ready to play Final Fantasy XIV Korea OBT.
The South Korea server for Final Fantasy XIV will finally launch on 14 August, under publisher Eyedentity Mobile. Most probably be the last server to launch. It is uncommon for an online game to launch last in South Korea, and Final Fantasy XIV Online is just going to do that. Online service for Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn was available from September 30, 2010 to November 11, 2012 in four languages: Japanese, English, French, and German. Final Fantasy XIV Korea will start off with Patch 2.2, and game producer Naoki Yoshida stated this version will get updates faster. The Pay-to-Play business model is retained, which seems risky in the kingdom of Free-to-Play games.
The Open Beta on August 19 is for Korea only. To have a Korea IP and bypass the regional block, we'll need VPN service. Besides the fact that VPN service ensure the personal privacy is protected, this service is also used to enable players play games they like from any region they are. A Korea VPN enables you play the game wherever you're living now.
