PlayStation Makes Popular Final Fantasy PS4 Game Free for Limited Time

PlayStation has made a popular Final Fantasy game free for a limited time for all PS4 users. More specifically, all PlayStation 4 users can nab -- via the PlayStation Store -- Final Fantasy XIV Online Starter Edition for free. Usually, the game costs $20, but until May 26, anyone can download it for free. The catch? Final Fantasy XIV Online requires a monthly subscription to play. However, the Starter Edition, which is what has been made free, comes with a 30-day free trial. In other words, while this is a free download, it's technically just a 30-day free trial.

As for the Starter Edition, it comes with Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, the base game, which is incredibly popular. However, it doesn't include the several expansions that make the experience better: Stormblood, Heavensward, and Shadowbringers.

According to Square Enix, the Starter Edition is perfect for newcomers and lets players begin their adventure as the Warrior of Light all the way through level 50.

At the moment of publishing, this offer only extends to the game's PlayStation 4 version. The title is also available on PC, but for now it hasn't been made free on PC. It's unclear if this is going to change or if this offer is going to stay exclusive to PS4.
