Square Enix has announced that the Final Fantasy 14 play for free campaign is now live. The free login campaign is welcoming back players to the acclaimed MMORPG. This is a limited-time event running until August 16, 2019, so let’s see what you must do to return to Final Fantasy 14 if you are currently taking a break from adventuring.
Final Fantasy 14 play for free campaign | Eligibility and schedule
Not everyone is able to join the free login campaign. It is only available to players who have previously purchased and registered Final Fantasy 14. To participate, your account must be confirmed as inactive for thirty days minimum, with all registered accounts being set to inactive during the duration of the campaign.
The Final Fantasy 14 play for free campaign runs from Friday, August 9, 2019 at 1:00 a.m. to Friday, August 16, 2019 at 7:59 a.m. (PDT). You can play for up to six days, which amounts to a total of 144 hours of potential playtime. If you want to continue playing Final Fantasy 14 after the event’s conclusion, you have to purchase a subscription. You may need to reinstall Final Fantasy 14, so here are the client download links for Windows and Mac.
Final Fantasy 14 play for free campaign | Additional notes
The free campaign begins after logging in with your details via the Final Fantasy 14 launcher. The duration includes the day when you first log in, up to the maximum of six days. If you are logged in when the event period ends, you will be kicked out of the game. Accounts that have been suspended or canceled due to a violation of the terms of service won’t be able to participate in this campaign, either.
You can log in to the campaign using any platform where you registered your service account. However, the free login period will only be valid for the first account that you use. If you purchase a Final Fantasy 14 subscription during the event period, you are giving up on the remaining duration of the free campaign.
Final Fantasy 14 is currently running the Moonfire Faire event, with in-game clothing items and an inflatable kiddie pool as rewards. A fourth expansion is already confirmed to be in development, with the latest expansion Shadowbringers having released on July 2.
