Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn Lists Benefits of Subscription

Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn officially launches on PlayStation 4 next month; having gone through its open beta late last month.

Today in a new post on the PlayStation Blog, publisher Square Enix detailed some of the benefits as to why you should subscribe to the MMO. In a time when free-to-play models are more liked by consumers, a company’s job of asking you to pay monthly for a game can be pretty hard. Square Enix would like to inform you all that A Realm Reborn is worth the subscription.

According to the post, Final Fantasy XIV will not need a PlayStation Plus subscription in order to be played. However you will need to be a subscriber to the MMO itself to be eligible for new content.

Here are some of listed benefits that subscribers get:

  • New Main Scenario Quests, continuing your story.
  • Two new raids.
  • Housing.
  • New Dungeons.
  • New Dungeon Hard Modes.
  • New primals to fight: Leviathan and Good King Moggle-Mog XII.
  • A new difficulty for primal fights, Extreme Mode.
  • Player versus Player Combat.
  • Treasure Hunts.
  • New factions (Beast Tribes) with Daily Quests.
  • Tons upon tons of new quests of all kinds.
  • New customisation options for your characters.
  • Tons of optimisations and new features for the game.

The game’s next beta phase will run from April 4 to April 7, and you will be able to carry your character over from this beta phase to the full game. The game launches April 14, with a subscription fee starting at £7.69 / €10.99.
