Final Fantasy 14: A Realm Reborn third beta phase begins June 14, new trailer highlights jobs

The third wave of beta testing for Final Fantasy 14: A Realm Reborn, the upgraded re-launch of massively multiplayer online role-playing game Final Fantasy 14, will begin on June 14, Square Enix announced today.

According to the game's beta roadmap, the third phase will include both PlayStation 3 and Windows PC testers and will open access to all players with existing Final Fantasy 14 accounts. The MMO has been in beta since late February and is now entering its final testing stages.

Those interested in participating can apply on Square Enix's website.

A new trailer released for the title highlights the score of job classes available for players to choose from. Players can take on the job of a warrior, or mix swordsmanship with a dash of white magic as a Paladin. Monks prefer hand-to-hand combat, while the less hands-on White Mage focuses on healing and protective spells. Bards, Dragoons, Black Mages — the gauntlet of classic Final Fantasy jobs are present.

Final Fantasy 14: A Realm Reborn will launch on Aug. 27 for PS3 and Windows PC.
