People once again get a chance to return to one of Square Enix’s MMORPGs for free. The company announced the Final Fantasy XIV Free Login Campaign is around until May 2023. From March 27, 2023 until May 8, 2023, people who used to play can come back and return to the game for four days. This follows one held in November and December 2022.
The protocol is largely the same from past Final Fantasy XIV Free Login Campaign promotions. You have to be a returning player who does own the game, but is now inactive for at least 30 days with no subscription. If that fits, then people can play for 96 hours for free from the day you login and return. At 11:59pm PT/2:59am ET on the last day of your free period, it ends. Depending on when you start playing, that means up to 96 hours could be available. The offer is available on the PS4, PS5, and PC.
Square Enix did note one maintenance period, which people might want to avoid if they want to be certain they get as much free play time as possible. Between April 3-4, 2023, for a full 24 hours, the game will be under maintenance. So it might be best to not start a session on March 31, 2023 through April 3, 2023, to ensure you get as much time as possible.
Final Fantasy XIV is available for the PS4, PS5, and PC, and the latest Free Login Campaign runs until May 8, 2023.
