Square Enix has announced that it will be celebrating Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn‘s first anniversary by allowing former subscribers to return to the game for an entire week for free.
“The first anniversary of FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn is just around the corner,” Square Enix writes. “To celebrate this momentous occasion, and to encourage even more adventurers to experience all Eorzea has to offer, we are pleased to announce the upcoming Free Login Campaign!
“If you or any of your friends are currently taking a break from your adventures in Eorzea, you won’t want to miss out on this limited-time event!”
Beginning on Friday, August 22, 2014 until September 1, 2014 former subscribers will be able to download and play the game for free with no restrictions. To be eligible, players must have previously bought and registered a copy of Final Fantasy XIV, and have an inactive service account during the free campaign (basically be unsubscribed).
Square Enix recently released patch 2.35 for the game that added new daily quests, tweaked the Hunt system, and more.
