Weekend Console Download Deals for May 22: Free Final Fantasy 14 Online for PS4

Ever felt the need to try out Square Enix's MMORPG comeback for the ages? Now you can, because the Starter Edition for Final Fantasy 14 Online is absolutely free for one week only.


Even as lockdowns are starting to get lifted across the country, people are understandably going to hesitate to head back out into civilization. So that means video games are more essential as a distraction than ever. And nothing is more distracting than an MMORPG. Fortunately, there's a really good one out there for PlayStation 4 owners.

PS4 users, did you just finish up Final Fantasy VII Remake? Would you like something to keep scratching that Final Fantasy itch? Then why not check out Final Fantasy XIV Online? Yes, this is the MMORPG that was once so bad that Square Enix blew the whole thing up, but also the MMORPG that became one of the best on the market after it was rebooted! That's an amazing comeback story, isn't it? Now see what the fuss is about for yourself, because the Starter Edition for FF14 is free right now, down from its typical $19.99 price point! It also includes a free 30-day trial, which should be enough to get an idea of how good it is.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
