Final Fantasy XIV Shadowbringers expansion is available on July 2nd and if you were to pre-order you can gain early access on June 28th. Final Fantasy XIV free trial is available until you reach level 35 and, I highly recommend Final Fantasy XIV to both Final Fantasy fans and MMORPG lovers around the world.
