Final Fantasy 14 won’t be going free-to-play anytime soon.
Each new expansion of Square Enix’s MMORPG has extended its meme-worthy free trial to include more and more of the game. As announced recently at the Las Vegas Fan Fest, that free trial will be expanded to include Stormblood up to level 70 when next expansion Dawntrail is released next year.
But will the company ever reach a point where that free trial is extended to the full game? Director Naoki Yoshida told Eurogamer it won’t, though the free trial will likely be expanded further.
