Final Fantasy XIV Payment Period Begins In January

PC News MMO RPG Square Enix

Since its lackluster launch, Final Fantasy XIV has been free to play. That will all change as Square Enix will start billing players for the privilege to play the continuously improving MMO. The Japanese publishing giant will being their billing period on January 6, 2012. So, for the time being, the game is still free to play, after the cost of actually buying the game at your retailer or online store.

The minimum a player will need to pay will be $9.99 per month for a 30 day subscription fee. This includes a $3.00 character fee. Why would an MMO charge a player for creating multiple character? Other MMOs don’t include a fee for extra characters. Maybe some do, but many don’t. There are other options for longer subscriptions. There will be a 90 day subscription available for $17.97 ($5.99 per month) or a 180 day subscription for $29.94 ($4.99 per month). This is leading up to the release of Version 2.0 early 2013.

Josh is the name, writing is my game... well my degree will say that. But, when uni gets me down (and it does), there is no better way that to grab a chair, sit back and slicing up some DarkspawnI started my gaming interest back in the good old 16 bit era with the Sega Mega Drive and Sonic The Hedgehog 2. I was roughly five years old. To this day I still try to fire up the dusty companion and speed through the wacky and bright levels, jumping on some Badniks, collecting those damn Chaos Emeralds. Then I moved onto Sony's disk based console the Playstation (thanks to my uncle). Since then I have picked up each of Sony's consoles from the 5th to current generation that has been released in Australia (with more to come).In terms of writing about games, I am quite new to the field. I started out late last year with my own blog before deciding to move to greener pastures. I have written a few reviews for the Playstation 3 and Playstation Portable. Features as well. I hope I can flex my muscles while writing with Capsule Computers.If I'm not gaming, however, I'm writing narratives. I am currently trying to kickstart a high fantasy novel (which, hopefully, turns into a complex RPG) that I want done in five years or so. My passion of writing has been there for a long time and has flourished as I grew. I'm into the fantasy genre, both games and novels, and thoroughly enjoy a deep and complex RPG, whether it comes from the East or West.Oh and anime is awesome!
