As a result of Closing Fantasy XIV has someway developed into one of many largest video video games on the planet, Sq. Enix has determined to seize a few of its older content material out of the again of the fridge, reheat it within the microwave for a bit and serve it as much as an entire new viewers of gamers who in all probability weren’t round when it was first launched.
I’m speaking particularly right here in regards to the sport’s second main growth, Stormblood, which was launched six years in the past as a premium piece of downloadable content material, however which for the following few weeks can be made accessible totally free (supplied you’ve already obtained a paid subscription, they’re not simply giving it away to free/trial gamers).
As the sport’s website factors out (thanks, Eurogamer), the free provide runs till Could 28. Importantly it’s not free-to-play, it’s free-to-download, so supplied you seize it earlier than that deadline you’ll be capable of play it everytime you need.
It’s good for each the console and PC variations of the sport, although as this official FAQ factors out, you could make double positive on PC that you just’re downloading the right version, as solely the Steam obtain will work for those who purchased the sport on Steam, and many others.
We reviewed the sport again in 2017, and stated:
Closing Fantasy XIV is likely one of the greatest massively multiplayer on-line role-playing video games going, one of many few capable of preserve a month-to-month subscription mannequin in a day when even an Elder Scrolls MMO has to go free-to-play. Stormblood’s epic narrative, beautiful new locales, spectacular battles and a few contemporary gameplay mechanics make a nice sport even higher.
I’m by no means going to complete it and nobody could make me.
