Here Are Some Details About Stormblood’s Collector’s Editions and Pre-orders

January 21st, 2017 by Chelsi

The Final Fantasy XIV team have finally released information about what to expect from the upcoming expansion Stormblood’s collector’s edition and pre-order options. The expansion will see a simultaneous release on June 20th 2017, right at the beginning of summer. Without further ado, let’s have a look at what exciting offers they’ve revealed for the players.

Before anything else, here’s a first look at Stormblood‘s cover art:

The Standard Editions for both Windows PC and PlayStation 4 are pretty much the same, and same goes for the contents of the Collector’s Editions.

The entire box is enveloped by a sleeve illustrated by series artist Yoshitaka Amano. It contains a figure of Zenos yae Galvus, who we see now is featured on the cover of the expansion (for NA/EU at least). An artbook, logo sticker cling, and a cloth map of Eorzea are included alongside it.

If you order the Collector’s Edition digitally you will get the following in-game bonus items featured from Final Fantasy V.

The Mac versions of the expansion can only be bought digitally.

Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood will come in three types of packages:

  • Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood
  • Final Fantasy XIV: Online Complete Edition
  • Final Fantasy XIV: Online Starter Edition

The new Online Complete Edition will feature A Realm Reborn, Heavensward, and Stormblood all in one bundle. It has a Collector’s Edition digitally available across Windows PC, PlayStation, and Mac platforms, available for $99.99, and it will include all in-game bonuses from all three releases. The standard edition on the other hand will be available for $59.99.

A Realm Reborn is basically going under a new name now, which is the Online Starter Edition, with the intention of helping players to indicate it as the first release. It will be available for Windows PC, PlayStation, and Mac for $19.99.

So, details about the pre-orders: the start date hasn’t been changed since it was first announced, it is still Jan. 24th 2017. This is specifically for the Stormblood and the Online Complete Edition (it must be noted that there won’t be any pre-order bonuses for the latter). Steam players can pre-purchase the expansion on May 2017. The Collector’s Edition will be available on the Square Enix Online Store and pre-order dates for it may depend on your desired retailer.

Most importantly for XIV’s PlayStation 3 players, please note that the service for it will permanently terminate on the release of Stormblood. Make sure to participate in the free upgrade to PS4 campaign through logging into Mog Station in time before the expansion’s due date.

The team has put up reminders too on the upcoming European Fan Fest in Frankfurt, where they have put up an initial schedule in case you have missed it. They are also continually answering questions you may have for them, and some of them have been posted in the official forums in detail.
