Since its re-launch two years ago, Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn has been receiving quite high praise from its ever-growing userbase, one which has now surpassed four million registered accounts according to Square Enix.
While this number includes players from all regions of the game, Square noted that it does not however include trial accounts. In other words, all four million of those registered are owners of the full game. It isn't quite clear if registered is just another way of saying people who purchased the game, or an actual active subscription count.
To help celebrate this monumental milestone, Square Enix are hosting a free trial of the game's content for all lapsed subscription players starting today, at 6:00pm AEST. The free login campaign will be available only to those who previously subscribed to Final Fantasy XIV (it isn't clear if this includes the original game's launch) and stopped. The campaign will end on Monday, March 9th.
