Final Fantasy XIV PS4 Coming April 14th, Collector’s Edition Revealed

Final Fantasy XIV: Collector's Edition

Since Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, the second MMO in the Final Fantasy series, was released on PC and PS3 , more than 1.5 million accounts have been registered, and filled more than 60 worlds with a living, breathing community. And since then, PS4 has been released, and millions of you have welcomed the new console into your homes. But admit it — you felt that something was missing, didn’t you?

Final Fantasy and PlayStation have been a dream team since the early days, and good friendships never die. So we’re happy to announce that Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn will begin beta on February 22nd, and then launch on April 14th.

But that’s not all. What would Final Fantasy be without a sumptuous Collector’s Edition? If you want to know more, read on!

You will defend the realm of Eorzea against a smorgasbord of enemies — no, I’m not even kidding, you should be happy if something doesn’t constantly try to snap you in half or just save itself the trouble and swallow you whole to begin with. In a world like this, an adventurer needs any help he can find.

And instead of the standard version, which gets you the game and 30 days of game time, there’s also a unique Collector’s Edition, which will look great in your collection. It features art, music and movies you can proudly show off to your friends, but also offers you the support every professional adventurer needs in the form of in-game items!

The Collector’s Edition contains these physical items:

  • Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn exclusive box
  • Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn artbook — The Art of Eorzea: A Realm Reimagined
  • Final Fantasy XIV Seventh Umbral Era movie disc — The Waning of the Sixth Sun
  • Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn soundtrack — The Sounds of Eorzea
  • Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn art card set
  • Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn themed security token

As well as some sweet, sweet in-game items:

  • Fat Chocobo Mount
  • Coeurl Mount
  • Behemoth Barding for your Chocobo Mount
  • Wind-Up Moogle Minion
  • Baby Behemoth Minion
  • Helm of Light (increases your earned experience by 20% until level 10!)

My personal favourite? The Fat Chocobo Mount! Ample, soft space to sit on, huggable, and even when you’re trapped in an icy chasm, you can be sure that he’ll find his way to your next meal — even if he has to peck himself through 50 yalms of pure ice, dangit! The true survivalist’s choice.

So, what are you waiting for? The pre-orders start now. And if you’re still not convinced, keep your eyes peeled on this space — we’ve got more to share, soon!

@ Darth_NyQuil: Just like any other MMO, no, there is no offline mode. It is a massively multiplayer ONLINE game. Hence the subscription fee to pay for the constant server uptime and patches, etc.

With the exception of the Fat Chocobo mount, this collector’s edition is identical to the PS3 version, and my wallet is VERY happy about that. Now I don’t need to buy a second collector’s edition of the same game. Thanks Square Enix! Can’t wait to transfer to the PS4 version of the game! :D

Yes, cannot wait to try this out on my PS4. I bought the PS3 version for $10 and haven’t played it yet. Going to hold off for PS4 to get my free month to try it out. I have heard great things so this will be my first MMO.


+ TomatoDragon on January 27th, 2014 at 7:51 am said:

Where can we preorder? I’ve been waiting till the ps4 release to finally get this.

    Nope! As long as you continue using your same FFXIV account, all of your content/characters/items/everything will carry over. You’ll just be playing on PS4!

I am obviously a plus member. I have a question. Can you enjoy an MMO on PS4 without being a plus member? All online play requires a plus membership? I have a friend who does not have plus (I have tried to convince him to join for a while) who likes MMOs.

    FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn will not require a PlayStation Plus subscription to play.

Monthly suscription? thanks but no thanks Square Enix.


+ FutureShocked on January 27th, 2014 at 8:24 am said:

is three a digital collectors edition too? if so does the collectors edition stuff carry over to the ps4 version for free as well?


+ Grayfox2k8 on January 27th, 2014 at 8:32 am said:

@ 23. Not all online play requires a Plus membership. Games like Warframe, Planetside 2, and DCUO don’t require Plus membership. Including Final Fantasy XIV: A realm Reborn.


+ Battlepope190 on January 27th, 2014 at 8:34 am said:

So how much for the Collector’s Edition? It was $80 on PS3, so I assume it’ll be the same here?

    That’s correct!
    The PlayStation 4 Collector’s Edition is $79.99 via the Square Enix Online Store. :)

@5 yeah cause we dont have a million thing we have to pay for upfront than pay monthly for already… cars, houses, internet, alarm systems installed in a house, cable, etc etc this isnt a new concept. Also its a mere 15 bucks a month ooooo thats expensive…. oh wit no itd not even at minimum wage youd make that much in 2 hours…. sooooo if you work 40 hours a week…. which is 160 hours a month…. youre only spending 2 of those 160 hours on ffxiv a month?!?!? zomg!! thats a lot!!! -sarcasm- heck taxes take more out of your check than that

If you’ve already purchased the PS3 Physical collectors edition, is there anyway to “upgrade” to PS4 version to receive the Fat Choco and Wind Up Moogle?

    Good news! All existing Collector’s Edition owners will automatically receive the new in-game bonus items (the Fat Chocobo mount and Wind-up Moogle minion) for free!


+ Battlepope190 on January 27th, 2014 at 9:06 am said:


CE owners on PS3/PC will get those in-game items for free when the PS4 version launches.


+ reson8er on January 27th, 2014 at 9:23 am said:


Very cool, thanks for the info :)


+ ZaelKain on January 27th, 2014 at 10:38 am said:

SE sure making sure 2014 starts with a lot of Final Fantasy…. I hope they finish it with one too like FFXV or maybe finally Type -0 here haha.

Haven’t been playing since december when I sold my PS3 for a PS4!

Will I be able to purchase this outside of the Square Enix store? I really don’t like having to use it unless necessary.
