Final Fantasy 14: A Realm Reborn to add more beta testers and gamepad support in April

The beta for Final Fantasy 14: A Realm Reborn, the overhaul of massively multiplayer online role-playing game Final Fantasy 14, will recruit more beta testers and add gamepad support in early April when phase two of the beta test begins, according to a post on the game's official forum by developer Naoki Yoshida.

Phase two of Final Fantasy 14: A Realm Reborn's beta will focus on gamepad support testing so there will be no major content additions.

Phase one involved 100,000 testers and through testing were able to pinpoint some server issues that weren't apparent in the alpha. The team were also able to catch Full Active Time Events-related (FATE) performance issues and fix server load problems in the starting zones.

The guildheist system, originally known as the behest system in the game's first iteration, will be the focus of phase three's testing. Guildheists will be available to players at a lower level than it was for the behest system.

Final Fantasy 14: A Realm Reborn is slated for release on Windows PC and PlayStation 3 later this year.
