Square Enix announced their subscription plans for Final Fantasy XIV. Announced earlier this year, they revealed plans to revamp the game from new server code, to adding a new graphics engine, and changing just about everything about the game to accumulate into what they called version 2.0.
Announced at the same time as the revamp, they planned to start collecting subscription fees for the game later on in the year.
In a blog post today, they revealed their plans to start collecting subscriptions on January 6, 2012. The subscription fees for the game will $9.99 a month and that will include 30 days of service, $20.97 for 90 days of service, and $32.94 for 180 days of service.
All of this includes one character slot and two retainers. They will still be offering discounts to those who still pay a subscription to Final Fantasy XI.
