Finally, free trial players can return to Final Fantasy XIV. Things have calmed way down now that many players have completed the Endwalker storyline so Square Enix opened the last of the flood gates today.
Play through the entirety of A Realm Reborn and Heavensward expansions up to level 60 for free with no restrictions on playtime!
We look forward to welcoming you to Eorzea! 👋 pic.twitter.com/20QZneRo5r

That said, there are still some servers that are marked as “congested” on the XIV server status site. That means that anyone looking to create characters there is going to have a time getting it done – unless you want to try around 3 AM server time. The good news is, most data centers have plenty of open worlds to create new characters on. But, if you’re planning on going for Aether, you may have issues. The only thing to do there is to wait and see.
On an additional note, if you’re big into crafting, Square Enix recently posted a new crafting and gathering guide for players on the XIV site.
