Starting later today, players will be able to try Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn out for free for 14 days, Square Enix has announced.
Of course there are some restrictions, the major one being that players can only reach level 20 on a trial account, and there are also “certain limitations on available in-game activities.” To begin your free trial you must download the trial software form here and install it.
As well as this, Square Enix has launched its Recruit a Friend system for the game. If you get a friend to join the game and subscribe you and your friend will get some in-game rewards. If your friend subscribes for 30 days they will get a Friendship Circlet that increases experience gained by 25 percent under level 25 and you will get an Aetheryte Pendulum that allows you to port to the aetheryte closest to New Adventurers on your friend list free of charge.
The best is yet to come though, if your friend subscribes for 90 days then you will receive the Drought Chocobo Whistle that allows you to summon a larger than normal Chocobo that can carry two players.
