If you were a subscriber of FINAL FANTASY XIV for at least 90 days between January 6, 2012 and the start of the version 2.0 beta testing you will be entitled to the Legacy Package. This package includes a reduced monthly rate of $9.99 (regularly $14.99), an exclusive in–game Chocobo mount at the launch of 2.0, and your name in the credits of the game.
If you do not qualify for the legacy package, you still qualify for the Welcome Back program which includes a 10–day free–to–play window between May 9 (8:00pm PST) and May 20 (11:59pm PST). You will be able to experience the Seventh Umbral Era content and try out major new additions.
So what do you guys think? In an age where MMORPG’s are going free to play by the hordes, do you think this is going to go well? Sound off below. For more information stay tuned to NGN.
