Square Enix announced today that Final Fantasy XIV Starter Edition owners are going to get a free treat for a while.
Those who have the base game, which is currently available for $19.99 and often gets offered on sale, can now add the first expansion Heavensward to their account for free until June 17. This also matches a free login campaign that allows players with lapsed accounts to come back for a total of seven days.
Heavensward adds a full game-sized story chunk (including some of Final Fantasy XIV’s best story beats), tons of content, the ability to play the Dark Knight, Astrologian, and Machinist jobs, and more.
It’s a nice way to get ready for the latest expansion Shadowbringers, even if you’ll still need to purchase and play Stormblood to get there.

Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers will officially launch on July 2 for PS4 and PC.
