Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward Free for Limited Time

By Rebecca Smith, 16 days ago
Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn's "Shadowbringers" expansion is due to be released at the start of July. To help ease players in gently, Square Enix is giving away one of the game's previous expansions to all owners of the base game. If you haven't purchased the "Heavensward" expansion, it's available for all players to keep forever for free, but you only have a limited amount of time to claim it.

Released four years ago, "Heavensward" continues events in the aftermath of the end of the base game. The Warrior of Light travels to Ishgard, a city where the thousand-year Dragonsong War has taken its toll. The free content will include the new areas, flying mounts, additional jobs, playable race, and other content included in its intial release, as well as all of the additional content that was added through patches, such as dungeons, trials, raids, and quests. The content is available to claim until June 27th, but once you've claimed it, it is yours to keep forever.

If you're one of those players who has let your subscription lapse, now might be the time to make use of the ongoing free login event. The Free Login Campaign is running from now until 7:59 a.m. PDT on June 17th. During that period, players can log in for up to seven consecutive days free of charge. Only accounts that have been inactive for 30 or more days are eligible for the free play period.

If you like what you see once again, "Shadowbringers" will be arriving on July 2nd to bring more content to the game.
