Do you love having an authenticator but hate putting it on your phone? Because the Square-Enix account authenticator is coming back, but now with a fresh new skin for Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers. Yes, it’s all ominous and purple, while fulfilling the same basic security token function of an added block before logging into your account. Of course, it also provides an in-game benefit, offering extra item storage in Final Fantasy XI and a free teleport destination in Final Fantasy XIV.
Players can pre-order the token now, with expected delivery happening early in July. And while FFXIV players will be stuck still raptly awaiting early access for the expansion on Friday, FFXI players will also have the Celestial Nights event to look forward to in the three major cities starting on July 1st. It’s perhaps a bit less exciting than waiting for Viera and Hrothgar naming conventions, but also a touch more relaxing.
