With its recent release of update 2.3 that contained a fair chunk of new content, including "The Hunt," which allows level 50 players to hunt down monsters for big rewards, it seems like no better time to jump into Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn.
To help make things a bit easier for newcomers, developer Square Enix has today revealed that those signing up on PC will be able to claim a free 14-day trial, of course with the usual trial restrictions.
Those interested can sign up directly through the game's website
. The trial will last for 14 calendar days from the day it was downloaded, so make sure you utilise every hour. Like other MMO trials, players will be restricted to level 20, and will only be able to earn 20,000 gil (in-game gold). There are a variety of other trade-orientated restrictions in place to stop gold farmers from gaining the upper hand, which you can read about here
While the trial is currently only available to PC users, Square Enix notes that those who wish to purchase the full game will have the option of moving their characters over to PlayStation 3 or PlayStation 4 if they so choose.
