This is that ice-cold N. Yoshida, it's pure gold. This one's for them hyur girls, them roe girls, straight masterpieces.
Final Fantasy XIV has been pleasing MMO audiences around the globe for nearly two years now. Except for those unfortunate South Korean franchise fans who have thus far been left out in the cold. Square’s title is finally coming to the region courtesy of publisher Actoz Soft, though, with the initial closed beta phase scheduled for June 11th through June 14th.

Square is sticking to its monthly subscription guns despite the overwhelming presence of the free-to-play model in South Korea.

imperialpanda Nreff koreans are obsessed with mmos. They even created a subgenre of literature dedicated to mmos.

They’re already spoiled for choices so it probably doesn’t hurt them quite as much.

A little late to the party in K town. I guess the IP might be enough to drum up some initial interest but with Black Desert in open beta it’s going to be hard to retain subs. BD is in my opinion is an amazing game and f2p too boot. I just realized while pounding this into my phone I may be a BD fan boy.

I’ll be interested in seeing how well this does in that market with a subscription model.
