Players will be able to get the critically-acclaimed MMORPG Final Fantasy XIV (FFXIV)'s second expansion, Stormblood, for free for a limited time.

You did not read that wrong. Square Enix has announced that players will be able to get the game's second expansion, Stormblood, for free. This offer started on March 27, 2023, and will end on May 8, 2023, at 6:59 AM PDT. That's tomorrow. As such, players who still haven't claimed their free Stormblood Expansion will have less than 24 hours to get it for themselves.

Of course, there is a catch to this promo. Only players who own the Final Fantasy XIV Starter Edition will be able to get the Stormblood expansion for free. This includes players who buy the Starter Edition during the promo period. Players who own the Starter Edition or those who buy it during the period can then follow the instructions below to claim their free Stormblood Expansion for FFXIV:

Stormblood came out back in 2017. It raised the level cap for characters from 60 to 70 and introduced two new jobs: Red Mage and Samurai. The expansion also brought the player to Ala Mhigo, continuing the events of the Heavensward Patch Quest. It also introduced Othard, the continent to the East of Eorzea, although what the Warrior of Light is doing there is something for the player to find out.
