Final Fantasy XIV launches patch 3.56 and removes free trial time restrictions

Patch 3.56 has arrived for Final Fantasy XIV, bringing with it the end of the Heavensward main story quests, Season 4 of the competitive Feast rankings, and an increase to the weekly Allagan Tomestone cap, which you’re probably not going to hit on a regular basis. (900 tomestones a week is a lot.) It’s enough stuff to give you good reason to keep working your way across Eorzea until the game’s second expansion comes out in June.

But maybe you haven’t actually bought the game yet. Does the patch still hold something of interest for you? The answer is yes; this patch marks the abolition of the 14-day free trial’s time limitations. So the free trial is now unlimited, although you can’t get higher than level 35 and you’re limited to the base game without Heavensward content. You can check out some screenshots for the patch just below if that’s what you need as an eventual motivator, at that.

Cool stuff. Trials should, in my opinion, aim at the more casual players looking to see if they want to slog through the content. 7-14 days doesn’t really motivate most people to consider a game, in my experience.

This is nothing but good news and long overdue. Now just wait for them to give old trial accounts access because that’s apparently going to take some time.

I had a hard time getting into it beforehand. With all the new people about to start brand new I might have to try again.
