That was years ago. They pretty much shut the old one down and created a new game, but kept the name.
After the 30 day subscription included with the Standard Edition, subscription is either 12.99 or 14.99 depending on if you want more than one character per server. There is also a free trial up to level 35 with no subscription (https://store.playstation.com/en-...0000000000).

Difference between this and the trial is the trial only goes up to level 35 in story, has restrictions on in game features (Messaging, Guilds, etc), but it is free of a subscription. Standard Edition contains the full base game (level 50) and has no restrictions on in-game functions, but requires a subscription to play past the 30 days included.

The only time this is ever free is when they give out codes at events I believe. Standard Edition only contains content from ARR, the base game. Heavensward, Stormblood, and Shadowbringers expansions are separate and have been as low as $30 together
Great game. Only downside is that it requires a costly yearly subscription to continue playing. I would be on-board if it didn't cost over $150 a year on top of paying for the base game and each individual expansion.

I've paid for a few months but it's hard to justify paying monthly when there's so many great games out there that deserve your time too. The subscription model only makes sense if you live and breathe only FFXIV during the time that you're paying for it because if not then you've just wasted money.

So I have an account on PC. Is it possible to get this and link to that account?

The account on PC isn't active. Probably quit a year or two ago due to lack of time.

Yes, unlike all other MMOs, Sony bows to Square Enix because they don't want to lose a lot of exclusivity of their games and allow multiplatform between PC and PS4. When I played for two years, we had people on PC and PS4 playing together and when my PC died, I was able to continue raiding on my PS4 while waiting on parts.

Great game BTW, the first expansion killed the Bard class for me so I quit. Sounds like they fixed a lot of those issues now but I've already had my fill of the game.

Yep, it's possible. You'll have to link your PSN account to your square enix account. Then I think you just have to add the ps copy on mogstation

Does not require PS+ to play online. (I play on PS4 and PC, and can confirm that PS+ subscription is not required.)

Thanks, I went ahead and grabbed it, even though I can't see myself paying a subscription for any individual game in 2020.
