With the arrival of the Endwalker extension, Square Enix’s servers are saturated. The producer of FF14 therefore announces 7 days of free access which can be renewed in the event of problems.
In a blog post posted by the producer and game director, Naoki Yoshida, Final Fantasy XIV players have learned that they will have a small gift of compensation.
Indeed, with Endwalker’s early access release this December 3, the game servers are full and there is more and more waiting to reach the regions. A technical problem which was foreseen but which has not been fully supported for the moment.
While apologizing, Yoshida therefore indicated that anyone who has an active account on a full version of FF14 Endwalker will get 7 days of free play upon official release on December 7th. Note that this also concerns the players who took advantage of the 30 free days with the purchase of the game.
Since we ask players to wait in queues for extremely long periods of time and the current situation makes it difficult to play normally, we have decided that when Endwalker officially releases on December 7th, noWe will give 7 days of free play time to all players who own the full version of the game and have an active subscription. This also includes players who currently benefit from the 30-day free play period included in the registration of the full version of the game and those who have multiple accounts.
In addition, we may allow additional free play time depending on the evolution of the congestion situation..
As a reminder, FF14 recently exceeded the mark of 25 million active accounts, making the game one of the biggest hits in Square Enix’s RPG series.
