Committing oneself to an MMORPG is a big thing. This is because MMORPGs can be extremely time consuming and usually comes with a subscription fee that charges your credit card every month, regardless of the fact if you’re an active player or haven’t been playing for the last 3 months.

Now Square Enix’s Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn has been getting some pretty good reviews and if you want to see what all the fuss is about, you might be interested to learn that Square Enix has recently announced that they will be holding a 14-day free trial event for the game.

The trial is currently live and interested gamers can head on over to its website to download the client. Unfortunately it seems that the trial is only limited to those running a Windows computer, so those on other platforms are out of luck, at least for now. At the same time, Square Enix has also introduced a Recruit A Friend campaign.

Active gamers who refers their friend to the game who pays for a 30-day subscription will receive a Friendship Circlet that grants 20% bonus XP when below level 25, and an Aetheryte Pendulum that allows players to teleport to the aetheryte closest to New Adventurers on your friend list. However if your friend decides to go for the 90-day subscription, will you be rewarded with a special whistle that summons a draught Chocobo that can carry an additional player.
