Final Fantasy XIV Welcome Back Incentives Announced

Posted on April 20, 2012 AT 09:44am

THE BUZZ: Square-Enix has announced the welcome back initiatives for Final Fantasy XIV.

Anyone with an inactive account can return to the game between May 10 and May 21 completely free of charge. Players will be able to check out the new job system, the Seventh Umbral Era content and the new gameplay features added in update 1.22.

Players who are still subscribed will also be getting a bonus. Those who have had an active subscription of at least 90 days between January 6 and version 2.0 beta testing beginning can take advantage of a lower subscription price, set at $9.99 a month.

These subscribers will also receive a Chocobo mount when 2.0 launches, and will have their names placed in the game’s credits.

EGM’s TAKE: That’s a lot of incentives for players to continue playing the game. Those that have stuck with it throughout all of the issues deserve all the bonuses they can get, it’s been a rough ride. However, it appears that the game may finally be taking shape, whether it will ever fully recover is yet to be seen.

Will you be returning to the game or do you still play it? Let us know in the comments below.

Matthew Bennett, Associate Editor
Matthew Bennett finally got his big break with EGM three years ago, following years of volunteer work for various sites. An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at EGMNOW.com. He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream. Follow him on Twitter @mattyjb89. Meet the rest of the crew.
