How to Get a Final Fantasy XIV Free Trial May 10, 2017

Posted by Maniac in Game News.

If you’re like me, you’ve probably heard a lot about the multiplatform MMORPG Final Fantasy XIV, but you want to try it out before putting down some money for the game.  Well, I’ve got some good news for you because Square Enix is now offering a free unlimited time 30 level trial for new Final Fantasy XIV players!  You can check out all the information about it here.

First up, you’re going to need a Square Enix account to sign up for the free trial, but you can actually create one for free. If you happen to use something like the Final Fantasy Portal App (and if you don’t you totally should) the account you created for the Portal App it should work fine.  It only takes a few seconds to activate your account, and from there you can choose the platform you want to play on.

This free trial works on the PC and PS4, and you can chose to play the free trial on the platform of your choice.  If you choose to play on the PC, you can download the demo client from the website. If you want to play on the PS4, you will need to download the free trial client off the Playstation Store.

Depending on which platform you choose to play on, you’re going to get prompted to download an updated installer the first time you run the trial.  When you finally get prompted to log in for the first time, you’ll get three boxes. You’ll need to sign in your Square Enix User Name (not email) and your password. Unless you’re locking your account with a Square Enix Token, you won’t need to include anything in the third slot.

After you complete your first login, grab a Coke because it’s going to take a while to install all of the extra game client data and patches before you can play.  If you’re like me and you upgraded the hard drive on your PS4 you should be fine.

The free trial doesn’t have a time limit but it have a level cap and will restrict access to certain areas. If you enjoyed the trial and want to explore the full game, you can unlock it by buying the full game client digitally.

Final Fantasy XIV is out now on the PC and PS4.
