Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn’ news: PS4 users can access free trial now

Gamers can now access the free trial of “Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn” on their PlayStation 4 consoles, allowing them to explore Eorzea for free while building a character up to level 20. They will also be able to transfer their characters once they purchase the full game. However, the 14-day free trial has its own “limits” as not all aspects of the game are included in the trial version.

To get this freebie, players can visit the PlayStation store website and simply download it using their PS4 consoles. There are instructions detailing how to make their own accounts. One can also mark it as download and access it once they switch to their consoles.

“Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn” is a reboot of the original “Final Fantasy XIV Online” and is released to PC, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation 4. This game follows the story of the original online game. The world is now rebuilt after the primal Bahamut destroyed almost everything. Gamers play the role of the hero who defends the world from invasion of the Garlean Empire.

Players can choose and create characters from the following selections: the human-like Hyur, the elf-like Elezen, the small Lalafell, the large muscular Roegadyn, and the cat-like Miqo’te. Moreover, players can choose whether they want to be from the Conjurer class, Lancer class, or Archer class, which is further categorized into four groups – Disciples of War, Disciples of Magic, Disciples of the Hand, and Disciples of the Land. Gamers need to increase the level of their characters to unlock new jobs, skills and abilities.

Meanwhile, subscription is required in order to play. Minor updates have been released for the game, and the “Heavensword” expansion pack is bound to be rolled out in spring 2015. However, Square Enix has not revealed the exact release date of the game yet.
