FF14 Shadowbringers

Square Enix is allowing players to return to Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers for up to six days for free. This is obviously being done to entice some players to hop back in to the already widely popular MMORPG a mere month after the big Shadowbringers expansion was released.

The free period is live right now and runs until August 16, 2019 at 7:59AM (PT). That's a lot of days, depending on when you read this news of course.

This free login period is only for those that have been inactive for at least 30 days prior to the start of this event.

If you like what you played, you can always keep playing with a paid subscription after the 16th. Square Enix does have a few notes about this "free login campaign," which we have also shared with you below.

  • Users who have previously purchased and registered FINAL FANTASY XIV.
  • All registered service accounts are set as inactive during the campaign period.
  • Registered service account must have been inactive for at least thirty days.
    * Details of service accounts can be confirmed via the FINAL FANTASY XIV: Mog Station.

  • The free login period begins after logging in via the game launcher using your Square Enix user name and password.
  • Including the day on which you first log in, the free login period lasts approximately six days. For example, players who log in on August 10, 2019 at 12:00 a.m. can play free of charge until August 15, 2019 at 11:59 p.m.
  • Players who are logged in when their free login period expires will be forcibly logged out from the game.
  • Players with multiple service accounts registered to a single Square Enix account cannot participate if at least one of the accounts is currently active.
  • Service accounts that have been canceled or suspended due to a violation of the service agreement cannot participate 
  • Players who purchase a subscription during their free login period will forfeit the remaining duration of said period.
  • Players cannot log in using a platform on which their service accounts have not been registered.
  • Players can log in using all platforms on which their service account has been registered.
  • When attempting to participate in the free login campaign using a Square Enix account with multiple service accounts, the free login period will be valid only for the first service account selected upon logging in. Please note that you may be unable to participate in the free login campaign with more than one service account at a time. If you cannot log in using a second service account even after meeting all other requirements, we ask that you wait for the free login period to expire on your first service account and try again.
  • Server maintenance may be carried out during the free login period. Please note that you will be unable to log in to the game during maintenance.
