Square Enix announced today that Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn and Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn Collector’s Edition is now available to pre-order for the PlayStation 3 and PC. It has taken Square Enix a long time to address all of the problems since the initial launch almost two years ago, and after what seems like an endless amount of beta testing, the game’s release is finally nearing.
Along with the game disc itself, fans who pre-order either the standard or Collector’s Edition will receive the following exclusive in-game content:
- Early Access: Access the game servers ahead of the official launch. Get your head start and make your mark in the realm of Eorzea!
- Cait Sith Doll Minion: On sabbatical from Shinra Inc. and looking for adventure, Cait Sith will join your party as a non-combat pet.
- Mog Cap: Show your love of Final Fantasy and strut around the world of Eorzea in this Moogle themed hat. Kupo!
The Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn Collector’s Edition contents include:
- Collector’s box designed by Yoshitaka Amano, legendary FINAL FANTASY artist
- 80-page “Art of Eorzea” hardcover art book featuring never-before-seen concept art
- “The Waning of the Sixth Sun,” a special bonus video disc that takes a cinematic look at the events that led up to the realm being reborn
- “Sounds of Eorzea” album that features musical scores by renowned FINAL FANTASY series composers
- Five collectable character art cards
