Final Fantasy 14: A Realm Reborn offers 14-day free trial to new PC users

Square Enix is looking for new blood for its MMORPG.


Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn recently released its robust 2.3 update, so now's as good a time as any to try and recruit some new blood. Starting today, Square Enix is offering newcomers on PC the opportunity to jump into the game for a free 14-day trial, albeit with a few restrictions.

New users can simply download the free trial software from the game's website. The trial will last for 14 calendar days from the day it was downloaded. Players can play up to level 20 and free trial characters can only earn up to 20,000 Gil. There are a number of other restrictions, including trades, retainers, Moogle Delivery Service and other features are a no-go for free trial users. The full list of restrictions can be found here.

While the free trial is only for PC users, should those users upgrade to the full version, their character can then be transferred to the PS3 and PS4 versions of the game.

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?

      Its a good game but it has no real EU servers there all in Canada its playable till you do end game.

      The end game servers are a a joke for the EU player base and lag a fair bit its common to see people clearly avoid an AOE attack and be hit by it up to 2-3 seconds later as the server says NOPE you did not avoid it DIE.

      They need to remove the instant kill AOE's or fix the server side lag as with both playing end game is just all down to luck if the server lets you avoid the attack even if you avoid it on your own screen.

      I kind of enjoyed this game and played the PS4 beta quite a bit. I just can't stomach paying monthly for a game :(
