Live-Action Estinien Wants You To Try Final Fantasy XIV Free Trial


Square Enix has released three live-action commercials for Final Fantasy XIV, to promote its free trial offer, a month after releasing an anime-style trailer for the game.

If the brooding Estinien is taking the free trial, there’s zero reasons why you shouldn’t too.

In the commercials, we see three jobs, The Dragoon, Black Mage, and Dark Knight. The Dragoon is depicted by Estinien, the Azure Dragoon, a recurrent character in the Heavensward expansion which promises to lend his spear more often in the next expansion, Endwalker.

We also get a glimpse of various daily routines along with a woman promoting and listing reasons why people should try Final Fantasy XIV and enjoy its extensive free trial. For the trial, players can freely play until their character hits level 60, as well as go through the content to Heavensward, which is the first expansion pack, without having to pay for a subscription.

Although the free trial blocks certain content, like inviting others to a party (you can still be invited by someone who is a paying subscriber) or joining a Free Company (the game´s guild system), it is still a great way to experience a little of the world of Final Fantasy XIV.

The first one shows the woman convincing two girls about the benefits of binge-playing Final Fantasy XIV and then hot seating to watch Estinien play Estinien:

This one is about how FFXIV free trial trumps the gym's free trial, ending with a cozy sauna alongside a full armor-clad Dark Knight.

The last one is a man receiving a free subscription random box full of unusable stuff, while the advertisement woman incentivizes him to look for glory in Final Fantasy XIV instead.

Take it from someone who has over 1,500 hours in Final Fantasy XIV, the game is a must-play - or at least must-try - for anyone who loves MMO and the Final Fantasy universe. With the next patch ‘Death Unto Dawn’ just around the corner and an expansion scheduled for this year, the game promises to bring updates for many years yet to come. And as Richie, I believe you also want glory, right?
