Final Fantasy 14 extends free trial for another 30 days

Don't want to let go of your Miq'ote Conjurer in Final Fantasy XIV just yet? Well now you don't have to: Square Enix has extended the free trial period by thirty days. In the press release for the announcement -- which is available just past the break -- Square Enix says it's not only in part to thank players, but to also give those who have yet to commit or ditch the title a chance to tinker around with an update set to drop on November 25.

As such, there will now be a running thread detailing changes coming in the November update, as well as an additional update planned for December. And relax: if you took advantage of the previous trial extension, you're still eligible here along with any user who registers a Final Fantasy XIV account and purchases a character by November 19.

FINAL FANTASY XIV Free Trial Period (16/11/2010)

As always, we would like to express our gratitude to all players enjoying their adventures in Eorzea.


Today, we have decided to extend the free trial period an additional 30 days. Please refer to the following for more details.

We have also added a Topics post detailing a portion of the content heading your way in the two large-scale version updates slated for late November and mid-December. This month's version update, tentatively scheduled for November 25, marks the first step in bringing about significant improvement to FINAL FANTASY XIV, guided in large part by the feedback you, the players, have provided. We are adamant that you should be given the opportunity to experience these changes firsthand before deciding to fully commit to the game. We encourage everyone to view today's post, as well as the previous Topics post from November 11 outlining the development team's roadmap for the coming months. Further details regarding payment options and future version updates will be posted as they become available.
