Once you’ve downloaded it, the Final Fantasy 14 Starter Edition is free to keep forever. Usefully, the 11.33GB download includes a 30-day free play period. So, essentially, Final Fantasy 14 is free to play on PS4 for a month.
It’s worth noting the Starter Edition of Final Fantasy 14 does not include the game’s three big expansions: Heavensward, Stormblood, and Shadowbringers. But it does let you progress through to level 50.
