Final Fantasy 14: A Realm Reborn offers Veteran Rewards to subscribers

Friday, 27th September 2013 10:17 GMT By Dave Owen

The newly launched Final Fantasy 14 is offering a new incentive to subscribe through a Veteran Rewards system. The idea is that if you choose to buy a longer subscription you’ll be given in-game items and other exclusive options.

So, if you subscribe for 30 days you’ll receive the Wind-Up Cursor Minion, 60 days gets you a Black Chocobo Chick and a Cascadier Uniform Voucher, and 90 days gets you the Beady Eye creature and the Voidal Resonator. If you opt for the longer subscriptions, you’ll also get the items from the lower tiers.

Is this enough to justify the game’s sub-service in a world of free-to-play and alternative model games?

    What i find weird is that they don’t have a free 14 day trial or something. Pretty much every sub-based game has this nowadays.

    Is their servers still a piece of shit, so they can’t implement this?

    Yeah I would be very tempted to give a trial a bash before paying £15 (which isn’t a bad price anyway) cos I know how boring mmo’s become after just a week or two.

    Agree, I think the expectation with a subs based MMOs now is a very low entry price to start with. Free limited trial – limited level or classes – should be the way to go.

    Not worth it imo. I’ve played it but I find the combat rather dull and slow. Movement is very FF, feels like you’re sliding through the world rather than actually moving through it.

    So do you have to subscribe to this game to play it or do you have an option?

    @5 No its not , There’s too many MMO’s with different movements and Blade & Soul is one of them which it has the most unique movement and combat system you will never see in any MMO

    overall FF14 ARR doesn’t deserve the hype tbh

    1) Servers are fine anyone who’s been keeping track of the news on FFXIV knows this was resolved a week ago

    2) Their is a 30 day free trial which is standard… first month free then pay monthly fee which they have two pricing options based on the users play style

    3) Anyone who has really played FFXIV knows the movements are not dull and slow… its standard pacing as seen in any online world/game play. The only difference is you have to work for progressing through the story its not handed to you … AKA WoW gamestyle.

    4) People who play FFXIV have been very happy with the story progression, and combat system. Typically the people griping are people taking breaks from WoW or its their first exposure to a real MMO…

    Keep in mind Blade and Soul is hardly unique and even the creators admitted that only the story concept is unique!

    From the Blade an Souls own homepage:
    ” Blade & Soul, like other NCSOFT titles, is a completely unique experience. For gaming fans looking for brutal martial arts, a refreshing and unique mythology, and art that is dripping with style, Blade & Soul delivers on all these fronts. ”

    The art is visually a mirror of Guild Wars…

    movement and combat system is too identical to many asian ported games you can play F2P via websites and downloading the client…

    Kinda odd you would call this the ‘most unique’ when its the most common place…

    TBH the hype is because the game isnt following the same generic patten other MMO’s are is why the world has the hype and the fanbase…

    Imagine that

    I’m not “griping”. I have plenty of MMO experience in a lot of different games, thanks. I just don’t think FFXIV is very good.
