Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last few years, you’ll have heard of Final Fantasy 14 Online. The game has 20 million players and is possibly the biggest Final Fantasy game of all time. After a revamp, it’s found a totally new life, and it’s showing no signs of dropping out of relevancy any time soon. With the recent announcement of Endwalker, I’m incredibly excited to jump into the game. There’s a lot to do, but I now want to actually get into it and try it out. I’ve also found that until February 17 you can get it at a deeply discounted price, making now the perfect time to try it.
The current PlayStation Store sale has a bunch of fantastic games for sale. Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is even included, which is mind-blowing to me. Although it is the perfect opportunity to pick the game up on another platform so you can transfer sales across. However, the true highlight is Final Fantasy 14 Online. The game and all of its expansions to date are very cheap, meaning you can get all of it for the price of a brand new game right now.
There are a few different ways to get the game. The base product itself is just under £10, perfect on its own. The game is hundreds of hours if you want to make it so, and most Final Fantasy fans do, so it’s well worth it. With all of the expansions, you can get the lot for £20. However, the Collector’s Edition, which packs in additional deluxe content for the game and every expansion, is £40. This is the one I’m going to grab. All of these also include a 30-day free trial for the game to smash through.
This is the sticking point I’ve always had with this game. It’s one of the few premium online games that still require a monthly subscription. However, I think that it’s probably worth it if you’re going to sit there and play through all of the content. You could always let your subscription lapse while you’re out of the flow, but then pick it back up when you want to play again. to me, it’s well worth it.
