Final Fantasy XIV opens up pre-orders for Shadowbringers

Throw wide the gates.

The third expansion for Final Fantasy XIV launches on July 2nd, but if you’re a player for the game you are likely already hyped for it. So why just sit back and wait? There’s a little under five months until it releases, but you can pre-order the expansion as of 2:00 p.m. EST today. Pre-ordered players also get a new minion and a scaling experience-boosting earring on March 1st, and there’s the early access to the expansion kicking off on June 28th to consider as well.

The pre-orders also include ordering the game’s physical collector’s edition, which includes a Dark Knight figure, an art book, a special vinyl logo cling, and of course the distinct box art. Digital and physical collector’s editions will both include a free minion, a Grani mount, and a cosmetic option for the upcoming Gunbreaker job weapon. However you decide to order it, you’ll be able to do so as of 2:00 p.m. EST, so if you want to be playing the expansion as soon as possible you’ll be ready.

Bought the Digital CE. I’d shell out $200 for physical if they put out a nice female statue. Kind of odd they have not yet.

I’m most interested in the Aetheryte earring that gives 30% experience boost up to level 70! I’m just curious if it will be collectible on all characters on an account. I hope so! I wonder if it stacks with the 30% bonus experience ring up to level 30? That’ll make leveling a new class much less painful. Either way! I’ll preorder after the mad rush, so in a few days.

I’ll just stick with the standard digital as I’ll never use the items in the collector’s edition in-game. I might change my mind later, but I can always fix that years down the road.

Missed the physical last year since money was tight but this year that DRK statue is calling to me and i’ll be ordering it tomorrow.

I just hope this time they sort out sending out some early access codes. I got digital on PSN for stormblood and got in straight away but friends who bought the physical didnt get the EA code till it was a day left on the thing and by then it just meant they were terrified of [Z A W A L L].

This is nice, but don’t pre-order it with the idea that you’d get the previous expansions with your pre-order. You’ll actually only get them when Shadowbringers releases/early access starts.

Honestly, I’m happy to sink a pre-order in for 5 months wait for a product that is a solid, predictable release from a company with a predictable track record, than dump $$ into some kickstarter or early alpha just for the privilege of playing an unfinished game ‘first’ in hopes that maybe I’ll have something actual….2 years from now, maybe?

Probably just going to order the standard digital of this. The earring will be useful as I still have loads of levelling to do for classes / jobs.

While I like the look of the collectors edition and the statue looks really cool I can’t really justify the cost of it. I may upgrade to the digital collectors should I find myself having some spare cash at some point.
