Final Fantasy XIV date, collector's edition announced

1:20 PM on 06.30.2010 // Nick Chester

Square Enix has announced that it will be launching Final Fantasy XIV for Windows PC on September 30.

The game will ship in two flavors, including the $49.99 "Standard Edition" that will net players 30 days of free gameplay; those who pre-order will get a code to download an in-game item, the "Garlond Goggles." Those willing to pony up $74.99 for the "Collector's Edition" will take home quiet a haul, which includes:

  • IN-GAME ITEM – Collector’s Edition preorders will include a reward code to receive an exclusive in-game item, the Onion Helm.*
  • EARLY ACCESS – Play 8 days prior to the release of the Windows PC Standard Edition (timing of access subject to initial server capacity).
  • BEHIND-THE-SCENES DVD – Get an insider look at the making of FINAL FANTASY XIV, with exclusive video content, interviews and more in this special documentary DVD.
  • SECURITY TOKEN – A FINAL FANTASY XIV–branded Security Token for use with your regular password.
  • TRAVEL JOURNAL – Record your travels in this beautifully bound journal filled with pages of never-before-seen concept art.
  • RIGHT OF PASSAGE – Redeem a voucher to receive your fully-personalized Right of Passage Certificate, each stamped with a unique serial number.
  • AMANO COVER – Special PC Collector’s Edition illustration by renowned artist Yoshitaka Amano.
  • FREE GAMEPLAY – Free gameplay for 30 days.

The title will cost $12.99 for a 30 day period, for those interested in exploring the Realm of Eozrea month in and month out.

Square Enix has also revealed that the beta for the game will begin in early July; you can now sign up online to participate. Specs for the beta can be found after the jump.

SMT demons, huh? There's really only one choice.

One of my favourite demons from SMT is Samael, his death magic and Megido spell are always a great help( Megido especially made him the bane of golden hands in my last P4 playthrough). Plus he looks pretty badass.

Favorite demon in Shin Megami Tensei, eh? Oh, I got many but so I'll just pick one for now whom is a beast in the Persona series. Yoshitsune--Hassou Tobi, Heat Riser = Don't fear the REAPER!

Played half an hour of Last Story. Yay, British voices! But the absence of colours makes me want to play other games instead, especially in this greyscale season.

There's not even enough reviews out to give Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth a rating on Metacritic...what's up with this?

Many thanks to a pal from time immemorial for his sneaky late birthday present to me of a digital Amazon gift card, which I promptly redeemed for this alluring beaut. Cheers! Viva la PS Vita~ [img]http://i.imgur.com/Cx3fPPb.png[/img]

I'm glad that the Amiibo stock situation got much better. Because Hasbro sure as hell didn't get the memo with their Marvel Legends figures. These two seem more elusive than a western Lucina Amiibo!
