Final Fantasy XIV is getting a major update today with the release of Patch 5.3. The update also brings with it major changes to the free trial, so players can play the entire base game and the Heavensward expansion for free.
This means you can experience the equivalent of two full Final Fantasy games for free, with no limit on the hundreds of hours of playtime that you can enjoy with fellow adventurers!
In addition, there are a number of other features that will now be accessible to all Free Trial players:
- The level cap for all classes and jobs for the free trial has been increased to level 60.
- Players can now try out a total of thirteen different jobs and classes, including the three jobs added with Heavensward — Dark Knight, Machinist, and Astrologian.
- The Au Ra race is available to play as.
- The Palace of the Dead has now been fully unlocked, and players can traverse as far as the deepest floor.
Those that already own the base game will also get access to the Heavensward expansion too, as well as all the above benefits.
