Although cunning pre-orderers will have been playing since before the weekend thanks to early access, the PlayStation 4 version of Square Enix’s Final Fantasy based MMORPG is now in stores, with a rather nice collector’s edition available.
Along with vastly upgraded graphics, this new version features PlayStation Vita handheld entertainment system remote play functionality, which allows players to continue their adventure wherever they go. And with the PS4 Share feature, players can stream their favourite moments, and share memorable screenshots with friends and fellow community members. The PS4 version of FFXIV: ARR also takes full advantage of mouse and keyboard support.
The PlayStation 4 Collector’s Edition for Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn is available today and comes with a special collector box and art book, special music disc, as well as six in-game bonus items. Final Fantasy XIV players that own the original Final Fantasy XIV 1.0 Collector’s Edition or Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn PlayStation 3 system / PC Collector’s Editions will also be granted two new additional in-game items (Fat Chocobo Mount & Wind-up Moogle Minion).
Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn PlayStation 4 Collector’s Edition includes:
- Exclusive Box
- Art Book – The Art of Eorzea: A Realm Reimagined
- Special Soundtrack – The Sounds of Eorzea
- Art Card Set
- Themed Security Token
- Seventh Umbral Era Special Movie Content Disc – The Waning of the Sixth Sun
- In-Game Items – Fat Chocobo Mount, Coeurl Mount, Behemoth Barding, Wind-up Moogle, Baby Behemoth, Helm of Light
Players who own the PlayStation 3 version of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn can transfer their accounts to the PlayStation 4 version for free. Please note that, once upgraded, PS4 players will no longer be allowed access to the PS3 version. To play both versions, a player must also purchase the PS4 version. Also, both PS3 and PS4 Standard Edition owners can upgrade to the digital-only Collector’s Edition for in-game bonuses via the Final Fantasy XIV: Mog Station.
