I've been reading up on things (thinking about trying xiv out) and was wondering if there was a free trial period at all? I know the game just came out, but I've been reading different things that have been alluding to a free trial, unless I'm mistaken. A friend said in October they will have a free trial for the month. Can any one shed some light on this for me? Would greatly appreciate it, thanks!

Well I haven't paid a subscription yet... but I did have to buy the game.

You may need to wait for an official announcement of a free trial before downloading and playing 100% free.

Too bad you missed the open beta, it was essentially a free trial that lasted 3 days.

Yea, I've been looking around the official site and here for any news on any future free trials or occurring ones, but haven't seen anything so I figured I'd ask just incase I missed myself. Doesn't matter, no one seems to have the game in stock anyways haha.

Unlikely a free trial will occur in the near future (if ever)

They have 50 packed servers, too many people already want to play (53 packed servers? not sure how the new ones are fairing)

Until their paying customers can log in at will (Seems a lot better this evening so far) They will not open it up for people to try it for free. Usually its 6+ months down the road.

For famfrit, it was ok until around 6pm my time. But the queue wasn't too bad.
