begins on February 21 at 12 midnight Pacific / 3am Eastern / 8am UK, Square Enix revealed that, unlike PlayStation, Xbox players will have to pay for two subscriptions to play Final Fantasy 14.

"The Free Trial version, including the open beta test, will not require an Xbox Game Pass (Core or Ultimate) plan to play," Square Enix said. "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 to the game costs $14.99, 90 days costs $41.97, and 180 days costs $77.94.

, which is the cheapest tier, costs $9.99, $24.99 for three months, or $59.99 for a year. The cheapest Xbox players could play Final Fantasy 14 for per month is therefore $17.98 if they commit to the longest possible subscription of each. Xbox players will otherwise pay $24.98 if they choose to pay for both on a monthly basis.

The blog post also confirmed the game will fully release on Xbox immediately upon the open beta's conclusion, though it didn't offer any idea as to when this may be.
