Square Enix has recently revealed that Final Fantasy XIV Online Starter Edition is now available for free on PlayStation 4, through the PlayStation Store digital store, until May 26. The title, which is usually priced at $19.99, includes the base game, Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn.
The MMORPG of Square Enix needs a paid subscription, but this new edition includes 30 days of free play. It is worth mentioning that it does not include the following expansions: Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward, Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood and Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers, the latter considered as one of the best games in the series in recent years.
As you may recall, Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn was released in 2013 for PC and PS3, and a year later for PS4, after the initial failure of the fourteenth installment of the game. After a reboot of the concepts, the world and other elements of the original game, the title gained public and critical recognition.
Recently in this month, Naoki Yoshida, the director and producer of the title, announced that this summer Final Fantasy XIV update 5.3 will be released, a patch that will introduce numerous changes to the original experience of A Realm Reborn. Approximately 13% of the missions in the start zones have been eliminated or renewed, and it will be possible to fly in these scenarios and reach in the raid “The Crystal Tower”.
The complete edition of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm with all the expansions costs $59.99 on the PlayStation Store. There is another edition, the collector, which incorporates various cosmetic elements and various other things at a price of $79.99. Below is the download link of the PlayStation Store for the following territories:
