Final Fantasy XIV reaches 6 Million Players

In under three years since the relaunch, A Realm Reborn, Final Fantasy XIV has reached 6 million cumulative player worldwide as announced by Square Enix. This number excludes free trial players as well. Today patch 3.35 was released as well as an announcement of a free login campaign. The free login period lasts from July 25th to August 1st and will give players who lapsed on their account a chance to explore the world again for free. Patch notes are included below:

“Patch 3.35 introduces the Deep Dungeon: The Palace of the Dead, where newcomers and veterans can band together for an unprecedented adventure in Final Fantasy XIV. With parties of up to four, the Palace of the Dead is the first of many planned content updates where players can battle through an array of enemies, avoid traps and tackle bosses to gain valuable experience. The dungeon features randomly generated maps, several dozen floors, and starts every participant at Level 1 with a unique new progression system. Diving deep into the dungeon will see players focusing on strengthening their gear throughout their journey, as they work to unravel the mystery of the Palace of the Dead.”

Final Fantasy XIV is currently available on PC, PS3, and PS4. Will you be trying Final Fantasy XIV again with the trial? Let us know your comments below or in the RGM forums.
