That “free” 30 days you get if you buy Square Enix’s MMO Final Fantasy XIV is now 60 days, thanks to the troubles the game has experienced on launch. As well as the inevitable server issues, there’s a bunch of broken stuff in the game, including problems with a number of quests. Square Enix have announced that “All users who registered a FINAL FANTASY XIV service account and purchased a character by October 25, 2010 will be eligible” for the additional game time. Presumably the publishers expect the worst of the problems to have been resolved by the end of that period, but I’m not getting a good feeling for the fate of this one.
