A lot of players have already started enjoying the Endwalker expansion of Final Fantasy XIV. These are for those who were able to get early access to the new content. However, there’s congestion that resulted in many experiencing troubles. The good news is that there’s a silver lining to all of this in the form of free game time.

For sure, this could be a minor issue for many players. But as expected, the Final Fantasy XIV team has already worked out a plan to minimize whatever disruptions were experienced. None other than the game’s Producer and Director Naoki Yoshida released a statement explaining the situation and what compensation is available.

Yoshida revealed that all Worlds in all regions have been hitting the login cap for long periods, resulting in the very slow progression of login queues. Because of this, Yoshida said that he is “truly sorry” for the “many inconveniences.”

Yoshida went on to say that because of the long wait in queues, players who have the full version and an active subscription get seven days of free game time when Endwalker officially launches. However, it’s not the only thing happening. According to Yoshida, there may be extra free game time depending on what happens in this congestion situation.

Pre-Launch Celebration

The Endwalker expansion is officially launching tomorrow, December 7. In celebration of the upcoming release, none other than nine-time Grammy nominee Sita released her version of “Fly Me to The Moon.” You can view the video below:

The music video honors the game's growth since it was first released in 2013. From A Realm Reborn to Endwalker, the game has seen at least 25 million registered players worldwide. This new collaboration track is available on different digital music services, including Spotify, iTunes, and Amazon Music.

Final Fantasy XIV is available on PC, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5.
