The Free Trial of Final Fantasy XIV currently is up to level 60 and included all the content up until the end of Heavensward (Patch 3.57). Soon this Trial will also include the Stormblood Expansion, meaning new players can play the Main Scenario up to level 70 including all content up until Patch 4.57.

Which will set you back, depending on how fast you are, at least 100+ hours for the main scenario alone. You'll also be able to unlock the Dark Knight, Machinist, Astrologian, Red Mage, and Samurai Jobs as part of the free trial which has no restriction on playtime whatsoever.

There are only a few setbacks, namely that you won't be able to join a Free Company or InGame Community, can't own housing, and can't participate on the Market Board. Aside from that, you also won't be able to trade or create parties on your own.

Minor nuisances for sure, but they won't stop you from participating in Raid or other content. Again, considering that you can level multiple Jobs and a boatload of side activities can set you back for 200+ hours should you decide to do everything.

To join the Free Trial, which is currently available on Mac, PC, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5, please visit the official website for further instructions.
