And anyone who hasn’t previously owned a Realm can now sign up for a 14 day trial via the Realms menu in game.

Create or sign in with an existing Microsoft account. International credit cards and Pay Pal (in some markets) are accepted. The payment method you provide will be automatically charged at the end of your first free month to ensure that you do not experience any interruptions with your service.

Provide payment information to enable future monthly payments.

For Office 365 plans, Internet access is also needed to manage your subscription account, for example to install Office on other PCs or to change billing options.

Internet access is also required to access documents stored on One Drive, unless you install the One Drive desktop app.

You should also connect to the Internet regularly to keep your version of Office up to date and benefit from automatic upgrades.

If you do not connect to the Internet at least every 39 days, your applications will go into reduced functionality mode, which means that you can view or print your documents, but cannot edit the documents or create new ones.

You can cancel online without penalty before your trial ends, by visiting and turning off auto-renew in the payment and billing area. Once your payment method is confirmed, you'll be transferred to to install Office.

You are asked to provide credit card information to help ensure that you do not experience any interruptions with your service once your trial ends.

Your credit card will not be billed until the end of the trial period.

You can cancel any time during the trial period by clicking Internet access is required to install and activate all the latest releases of Office suites and all Office 365 subscription plans.
