FFXIV Reopening Free Trials on February 22

Remember the mire that was the launch of Final Fantasy XIV: Endwalker? The long queues and constant error 2002 messages led to a number of players being unable to log into the game. Square Enix increased the size of queue lobbies and fixed some server errors, but trying to log in during peak hours was a nightmare.

In response, Square Enix halted all sales of FFXIV and locked out the creation of new free trial accounts. Game sales resumed on January 25, but free trials remained in the dark. During this evening’s Live Letter from the Producer, FFXIV creative director and lead producer revealed when free trials would be returning.
