It seems like Square Enix are really eager (and hungry) to gain more players for their mmorpg game “Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn”. Because just recently Square Enix launched a free trail version (14-days) of Fantasy XIV. There will however be “some” limitations on available in-game activities in the free-trail version.
In case you wonder what those limitations might be. You can read more about it on the Lodes stone homepage). Square Enix has also added a reward system (“recruit a friend and earn rewards!“) to A Realm Reborn.
And you can read all about it in the press release down below =)
