Square Enix today confirmed that new users can play Final Fantasy 14 for free for an unlimited length of time.

Final Fantasy 14 is absolutely one of the best MMORPGs I've ever played; it's a shining gem in a sea of free to play mediocrity, and Square Enix's dedication to the game is incredible. In the spirit of attracting new players and giving back to the community, the publisher has removed the two week play restriction on FF14's free trial.

"We are pleased to announce that the 14-day limitation on the Free Trial has been removed and the adventure can continue for as long as you want!" the publisher announced in a Lodestone post. "Additionally, users who participated in the Free Trial but never upgraded to the full game will be able to continue where they left off with their account."

Remember the free trial still has restrictions. In an effort to reduce space, trial players can't yell or shout to others, use the market board or trade, can't join free companies, have a max gil cap, and can only play until a character reaches level 35.

But even still this is a great move by Square Enix and offers a great entry point for new gamers who want to try the MMO out before they buy.
