Square Enix is getting ready for another server upgrade which will send Final Fantasy XIV servers to the proverbial cloud. To ensure that the cloud servers will be able to handle the strain of live service, the team will be running a week-long stress test from November 20th through November 27th.

There will be no maintenance downtime prior to the start of the cloud beta, so you’ll be able to jump right in as soon as they come online. All you have to do is select NA Cloud DC (Beta) from the Data Center Selection screen and choose from one of the two cloud server options.

All characters will receive 50 million gil, a level 80 job boost, and a full set of level 80 gear for every job to get you off to a running start. You’ll also get a story skip so you can bypass the main story quests and jump right into the Endwalker expansion content. Note that all character data will be wiped after the test.

There’s no word on whether Square Enix will be handing out participation rewards, but it looks like there won’t be any. We’ll let you know if anything changes. In the meantime, you can learn more about the upcoming stress test on the Final Fantasy XIV official site.
