Square Enix is going to be dropping Final Fantasy XIV support for the PlayStation 3 on June 16, 2017, the day the Stormblood expansion early access period begins. With the end drawing so near, the company has decided to begin The Final PlayStation 3 Free Login Campaign on May 1, 2017.
With The Final PlayStation 3 Free Login Campaign, people will be able to play Final Fantasy XIV on a PlayStation 3 without a subscription. This offer will last until June 15, 2017, when the early access maintenance for the new expansion ends. Anyone with an account that has not been canceled or suspended can play the MMORPG for free on a registered copy of the PlayStation 3 version of the game. If someone owns and plays the game on more than one platform, they will still need to pay a subscription fee if they log into the game and play on a PlayStation 4 or PC.
Final Fantasy XIV is available for the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PC. The Stormblood expansion will appear on the PlayStation 4 and PC on June 20, 2017. The PlayStation 4 Upgrade Campaign, which gives PlayStation 3 players a free copy of the PlayStation 4 version of the game, is in effect until December 31, 2017.
