Final Fantasy XIV players get month-long extension
It's unprecedented to get two mainline Final Fantasy titles within in one year, but that's what Square managed with the recent release of Final Fantasy XIV. However, that short turnaround time may have resulted in a slipshod product as many fans and critics have noted numerous bugs and glitches, with several have described the game as being "unfinished."
Square Enix has heard customer complaints, and in light of the feedback, the Japanese publisher had decided to extend Final Fantasy XIV's free 30-day trial for an additional month.
"Since the official launch of service on September 30, 2010, we have received a wealth of constructive feedback from the FINAL FANTASY XIV community, and the development and management teams would like to take this opportunity to express their sincerest gratitude," Square wrote on the official FFXIV blog. "Considering the nature of much of the feedback we received, however, and the current state of the game, we have decided to extend the free trial period for all users."
While FFXIV launched for the PC last month, the PS3 version is due for next year. Hopefully Square can iron out the bugs in time for the console release.
