Final Fantasy XIV opens up Heavensward preorders on Steam and consoles

I'll be glad when we can see this armor on non-catdudes.
If you’re playing Final Fantasy XIV on Steam, the wait for Heavensward has been a bit difficult, as there’s been no clear method for pre-ordering the expansion. Players were told that a separate expansion purchase could not be applied to a Steam client, which meant waiting until the expansion was available on the client. The good news is that players can now pre-order on Steam, getting both the pre-order code for Early Access and the full code for when the expansion goes live.

Players on the consoles should also be happy that the digital pre-order option is now available through the PlayStation Store, so you can go the “no physical media” route there as well. The development team has also posted a new lore entry on the main site, but it’s just news that players watching the expansion site saw about a month ago.

I already had the game before Steam release (1.0 player) but bought it again on Steam anyways. I can download the game on my Steam to login with my non-steam account and just gave the CD key from Steam to a friend to dl the client off of Steam. 

So they need to get the Steam expansion and I get the non-Steam?

Eliot_Lefebvre Greaterdivinity Oops, well… I bought this last week on steam, then pre-ordered the xpac a couple of days ago through SE. I guess this means I have to either buy a new basic edition through SE, or not play while I wait for Valve to sort it out. Bummer.

Krem Greaterdivinity Eliot_Lefebvre I have no idea why people keep putting the blame on SE & not Valve/Steam.

Greaterdivinity Eliot_Lefebvre it’s more Valve’s side then SE’s on this Valve WANT people to use Steam Wallet, I don’t know why they just do, but every MMO that uses Wallet HAS to use the Steam version of whatever DLC/Expansion/Fluff that comes with it (ofc Valve’s ‘cut’ > All).. This is kinda the reason a LOT still only use Steam as a launching platform to their own logins and launcher outside the system.

Perhaps ‘locking’ to Steam was the only way FFXIV could be on it as part of it’s ‘contract’, sadly as we are still in the age of ‘not on Steam no sale’ for many a gamer, Yoshi-P and SE where most likely bent over a barrel on that one..

I’m still thankful they haven’t caved the MS’ ‘enclosed system or not on the Xbox’ BS.

Eliot_Lefebvre Bah, lame. Wish they’d figure out a way to let you transfer your account to Steam. Then again, it is Squeenix so whatever they would set up online would be the most nonsensical, confusing mess ever, as is their usual : /

Greaterdivinity Yes, you need to do either base game + expansion off of Steam, or base game + expansion on Steam.

Hmmm, wondering if you need the original on Steam to play the expansion. Because I have the base game off of Steam but would be totally down to pick up the expansion on Steam.
