Final Fantasy 14: A Realm Reborn is one of our favorite MMOs, and its first expansion pack, Heavensward, largely carried that quality forward. Now developer Square Enix is preparing for the launch of a second expansion pack, Stormblood. But if you haven’t actually got into the game yet, this might be the opportunity you’ve been waiting for.

Humble Bundle is currently running a deal where both Final Fantasy 14 and Heavensward can be purchased for a mere $19.79 — or about $10 off the usual asking price. That price can be lowered a further 10 percent if you’re a Humble Monthly subscriber, and as with all Humble Bundle purchases, you can choose to give five percent of your purchase to a charity, such as American Red Cross or Child’s Play.

It’s worth noting that Final Fantasy 14 is a subscription-based game. As of a change last week, you can now play freely up to level 35, but beyond that point, you’ll need to pay a subscription fee of at least $12.99 per month. Still, even with that fee added into the cost of the game, this deal can provide hundreds of hours of a big, beautiful game for minimal cost.

The sale is running for just over four-and-a-half days from the time of writing. It ends at midnight ET on Monday, April 10. The sale is, of course, only for the Windows version of Final Fantasy 14. The game is also available on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3, though PS3 service will end this summer.

The new Stormblood expansion for Final Fantasy 14 launches on June 20 and includes multiple new lands for players to explore, new red mage and samurai jobs and a level cap increase from level 60 to 70.

The sale also comes just after Final Fantasy 14 has reached new heights of mainstream notability. The MMO was a featured sponsor for this past weekend’s Wrestlemania 33 event and even inspired the outfits of WWE superstars The New Day.
