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.

R.I.P. Wes Craven. I'll always remember you for A Nightmare On Elm Street, Scream and Red Eye. I'll try not to remember you for Music of the Heart.

Anyone remember the cartoon "Freakazoid"? I'm doing artwork for a box for work to hold my supplies, but I cant remember some of the better characters. Freakazoid, Steph, Cosgrove, Candlejack, the Lobe, Caveguy... but who else?

Sorting out a bunch of university stuff and going through a bit of writers block. I'm also holding some of my best stuff back for freelancing purposes (uni ain't cheap!), so sorry if my blogs have been a bit lackluster lately. And will be for 4-ish weeks.

Been looking for a car to buy today. I swear, I am so sick of my mums voice. "It's too expensive!" "Don't you think it's a little big..." "INSURANCE!" Goddamn woman, chill your beans.

Apologies for the lack of Experience Points lately! I'm taking a short break from writing them, but don't worry. They'll be back soon enough!

Adventure games are a big part of the indie scene, but there's a reason their popularity plummeted as graphics evolved. This clicking on everything, just in case, nonsense is for the birds. 90s birds, but birds.

Spotted some "The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3" (1989) DVDs in a store. Hearing music and sound effects from the game is more amusing than it should be - although the running shrill gets old quickly.

Diablo 3 patch 2.3.0 equals more grinding. Good.

Funny coincidence: Last week saw the release of Until Dawn, which talked about a Canadian tribe of Native Americans called the Cree,and last night a Cree woman (Ms. Canada) won the Ms. Universe contest. Butterfly Effect updated.
