Frequently Asked Questions

How do I participate in Early Access on the PlayStation®4?

To participate in Early Access you will need a valid pre-order code from a retailer that is participating the in the FINAL FANTASY XIV: Heavensward pre-order campaign. Once you've registered the pre-order code on the Heavensward pre-order website, you can select to receive a PS4-specific bonus code.  Registering this code on the PlayStation Network, while logged into the PSN account that you will use to play FFXIV, will grant you play rights during the Early Access period.

About the Pre-Order Code:
Retailers that are participating in the FINAL FANTASY XIV pre-order campaign will deliver pre-order codes to eligible customers. These codes are 18 characters long and will be formatted as follows: XXXXXX-###-XXXXXX-###.

The PSN code may not be valid until we get closer to the early access period and attempting to use it will produce an error. We'll send out an email to users when the codes are ready to be redeemed on the PlayStation Network. Once the code is redeemed, you'll be able given Early Access play rights and you will be able to download the FINAL FANTASY XIV: Heavensward client.
