Final Fantasy XIV might not be free-to-play, but it just got a whole lot closer.Square Enix has officially removed the 14-day access restriction on free trial accounts. That means you can start a new trial character and play as much FFXIV as you want until you hit level 35. Once that happens you need to either subscribe or start another character.
This marks a major change for one of the last top-tier subscription-based MMORPGs not called World of Warcraft. Previously, the free trial ended after a two week timer elapsed, regardless of your progress.You’re getting an awful lot of free content now. Leveling even one character up to 35 will take some time — at least a few days of moderate play (or one day of super-efficient, heavy play). And you’re allowed to create as many as eight, as long as there’s no more than one per World (the FFXIV designation for servers).
StarCraft is coming back. Not as a sequel or as yet another expansion for StarCraft II. Instead, Blizzard Entertainment is cooking up a remaster of the 1998 original, with a spruced up 4K resolution sheen and an assortment of modern contrivances aimed at making it easier to play a 20-year-old game in 2017.
The re-release, titled StarCraft Remastered, will launch this summer. Functionally, it’s meant to be the game you remember — none of the rules, mechanics, or any of the stuff that made StarCraft the gold standard of the real-time strategy genre will change.
It’s just going to look better. And sound better. In addition to a new coat of 4K-friendly textures — effectively, sharper versions of the original game’s art with a wider range of supported aspect ratios — all the dialogue and music has been re-recorded.
For story devotees, StarCraft Remastered will also feature comic book-style interludes that put an eye-catching new spin on the 1998 game’s Terrans vs. Protoss vs. Zerg royal rumble.
