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.

Definitely worth. Addicting. I stopped paying because I'm broke boy. Soundtrack is astounding. The only con is paying after the free levels if money is an issue. Highly recommend. Great community too might I add!

Is the starter edition different than the trial?
The trial version only lets you play the classes up to level 35 and has some features locked, whereas the starter edition has everything unlocked and lets you play past level 35 free for the 30 days this comes with. After that you'd have to pay a monthly sub.

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 unlimited time (https://store.playstation.com/en-...0000000000).

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 first expansion. Heavensward, Stormblood, and Shadowbringers expansions are separate and have been as low as $30 together
Oh ok, I'll pass on this game then. I don't believe in paying monthly to play a game.

Yes, 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.

If you don't plan on paying monthly don't get this and stick with the free trial otherwise I believe your account gets locked up into a paid subscription.

I have the complete edition on PC at one point but I stopped playing. I can't get myself to pay monthly to play an mmo anymore.

The first time you register the base game for a system (PC, PS4, Mac) it includes a free 30 days. Since I only own this for PC, this will give me 30 days free. Thanks!

So I heard they had to fix the game cause it was widely criticized. What wad it they fixed and why is this game good?
And also... It's free... While that may not make it good, free is "good enough" Smilie FWIW I have not played this and have no opinion on it, but it's free so not much to complain about

I spent many hours but still not reached lv35 yet.
BTW, Netflix has a TV series on this game. FINAL FANTASY XIV Dad of Light:
https://www.netflix.com/title/80178543
There is also a movie largely based on the TV series.
However the movie is not yet released in the US. I watched it on my flight to Japan last year.

Can this free 30 days be used once you reach lvl 35 from the free trial?

yes, however the free trial also lacks the Duty Roulette which makes it way easier to level.

I started playing because of isolation, and IMO it's the best MMO out there, as it's the first one I've been able to play longer than an hour. (Not really a great review, but its mine)
