Square Enix has just announced extension of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn beta for gamers in North America and Europe. This announcement came after the beta was hit by a nasty Error 3102 disallowing players from playing the Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn beta.
Square Enix has promised to fix the error within an hour or so and as a compensation package has extended the beta period. Square-Enix issued this following statement just a few minutes ago:
Thank you very much for your participation in the FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn Beta Test.
We are currently experiencing technical difficulties with Worlds hosted on the North American and European datacenter which is preventing certain characters from logging into the game.
An emergency maintenance, taking place between Aug. 18, 2013 9:30 p.m. to Aug. 19, 2013 12:30 a.m. (PDT), is currently underway to address characters experiencing this issue.
Phase 4 of the Beta Test was originally scheduled to conclude on Aug. 19, 2013 at 2:00 a.m. (PDT). However, given the fact that affected characters are numbering in the tens of thousands and the time it will take to address the situation including the time required for the emergency maintenance, we will be extending the Beta Test until Aug. 19, 2013 8:00 a.m. (PDT) for Worlds hosted on the North American and European datacenter.
We hope for your continued participation in the FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn Beta Test.
The Beta Test will end as scheduled on Aug. 19, 2013 2:00 a.m. (PDT) for Worlds hosted on the Japanese datacenter.
