How to Buy and Subscribe To FFXIV

So you’ve decided to join the trend and play Final Fantasy XIV for the first time. First, welcome to the community! Unfortunately, the process of actually signing up for the much-discussed FFXIV free trial or subscription is needlessly complex… That’s why we’re here to make the process a bit easier for you. Follow along and you’ll be in-game throwing out Cure and Fire spells in no time!To get more news about Buy FFXIV Gil Cheap, you can visit lootwowgold official website.

Perhaps you’ve heard the meme. “Have you tried the critically acclaimed MMORPG FFXIV? You can play through the entirety of A Realm Reborn and the award-winning Heavensward expansion up to level 60 for free with no restrictions on playtime!”

It’s an ongoing joke within the community, but it’s absolutely true. The FFXIV free trial allows you to enjoy the entire game up to level 60 — 20 levels below the pre-Endwalker level cap — and play through the content in the base game, as well as the initial Heavensward expansion. If you’re looking to try the game, it’s a great place to start.
There are less obvious caveats, though. First, you can only start the Free Trial on one platform. Whichever platform you begin your trial account on, you’re locked into that until you spend money. If you start the trial on PlayStation 4, you can’t switch over to PC or Mac and continue playing. You will be able to purchase a license for any platform you choose later, but you’re stuck while in the trial period. So where you begin is important.

You should also know that once you’ve switched a trial account over to paid subscription, you cannot go back to a trial account, even if you’re still within the stated content boundaries. So if you play until level 40 and then pay the subscription for a month, you cannot jump back to a trial account. So when you take the plunge, it’s all in.

Another strange issue is that some platforms require you to download the free trial as a separate client. That means when you switch from the free to a paid version (for example, after reaching level 60) you need to delete the trial and install the “real” game. You’ll keep all your progress if you sign in using the same account. The game has full cross-save across all versions! It’s just an extra odd hurtle. It also doesn’t apply to the PlayStation 5 or Mac versions. For whatever technical reasons, these games don’t require a reinstall when you upgrade.

The first step in the initial process is to go to the Free Trial starting page. Just click the big “Start Your Free Trial” button. Then you will need to sign in with an existing Square Enix account or create a new one. If you’re creating a new account, note that you will choose which platform you want to start your trial on here. Your options are Windows PC, Mac, or PlayStation 4 / 5.
Once your account is created, you’ll be given a link to download the game on your platform on choice. The PC client is downloaded directly from Square Enix, while the PlayStation client can be picked up from the PlayStation Store. There’s also Steam — which you simply get from the Steam storefront. This, too, counts as a totally separate version of the game from the Square Enix store version. Why? We don’t really know! But as long as you pick the version that’s most convenient for you it shouldn’t be too much of an issue.

When you’ve downloaded and installed the game, it’s time to sign in. For the PC and Mac versions, you’ll sign in with your Square Enix account. For the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5, you’ll load up the client and then link your Square Enix account with your PlayStation account. (PlayStation Plus is not required in order to play FFXIV!) Then you can enjoy the Free Trial in all its majesty!
