However, there may be a catch for Xbox owners who are willing to play Final Fantasy 14 on their consoles once the stable version of the game releases on Microsoft’s devices. Square Enix has also confirmed that the open beta version of Final Fantasy 14 will be available to gamers starting February 21. However, unlike the game’s PlayStation version, Xbox players will have to pay for two subscriptions to play the game.
Here’s how much players have to spend to play the game
In a blog post, the developer has confirmed that “the Free Trial version, including the open beta test, will not require an Xbox Game Pass (Core or Ultimate) plan to play. However, the full Xbox Series X and S version will require an Xbox Game Pass (Core or Ultimate) plan to play.”
A 30-day subscription of the game costs $14.99. Meanwhile, a 90 days and 180 days subscription for the title costs $41.97 and costs $77.94, respectively. Xbox Game Pass Core, which is the cheapest tier, costs $9.99, $24.99 for three months, or $59.99 for a year.
Even if players pay for the longest possible plan for each subscription, the minimum amount that Xbox players have to pay to play Final Fantasy 14 every month will be $17.98. On the other hand, Xbox players will have to pay $24.98 if they choose to pay for both subscriptions on a monthly basis.
However, Xbox will allow users to download the game for free. The company also confirmed that the game will fully release on Xbox immediately upon the open beta’s conclusion. But, the company didn’t confirm the official launch date of Final Fantasy 14 on Xbox.
