If you were thinking of jumping back into Final Fantasy XIV Online but were unsure if it would be worth your while then today might be the best opportunity you’ll get to test the waters before forking out a subscription fee you might regret (gaddamn Netflix!). The event started today at 1:00PM and it will run up until the 14th of April at 8:00AM. The event will allow players to test out the post patch 3.2 content, which included a new PvP mode called The Feast.
However there are a few catches, see below for details:
- You can only play for 96 hours consecutive hours (that’s four days in total).
- You must have previously purchased and registered a copy of the game.
- To take part your subscription cannot have been active within the last 30 days.
- A subscription is required if you want to continue playing.
Those terms imply that they’re trying to win back old subscribers rather than encourage new ones to purchase the game, however if you do have it installed on your hard drive then this is a nice opportunity to take the game out for a spin and see what’s changed since you last played. We’ve included four screenshots down below, just in case we haven’t covered every detail.
Conor is Pure PlayStation’s resident Irishman. Naturally that means he’s constantly slurring his words and turning up stinking of Guiness with a potato in his pocket. It’s not all bad though, because Conor is also a PlayStation nut. When he’s not doing his best Father Jack impression (Father Ted, watch it) he’s got a DualShock 4 in his hand and a Vita in the other. Yeah, we don’t know how he manages it either.
