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.
