If you hated the first installment of Final Fantasy XIV, you’re probably aware that the reworked version Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn is being released later this month on August 27. (Or you’ve heard about the character creation benchmark yesterday and you’re now stoked to try the game out).

For the rest of us interested in trying the game out, pre-order deals of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn is now 20% off again at everyone’s favorite digital retailer GMG.

  • Already have my Collectors pre-ordered, but this is a great deal for people who don’t. I think it awesome of Siliconera to post articles like this =^_^=

  • Ferrick

    nooooo, already have my CE preordered =<, oh well, this is good for others =P

    • the digital or the physical? because I think physical CE gets a bit more goodies.

      • Ferrick

        i bought the physical CE for PC from SE’s online store and paid in full for it already

  • Guest

    I already pre order the physical collector edition. The boxart is simply amazing.

    • James

      I sold my Collector’s Edition for $300. I love the Boxart but I couldn’t ever pass that up.

  • mojack411

    I need to play the open beta before I decide if I wanna buy this. I enjoyed phase 3 enough, but I never even got to the point where I could enter dungeons, the main purpose of the game. So hopefully I’ll reach that point this time then I’ll decide. This is a neat little deal though.

    • Alestaos

      You can reach the dungeons via story to begin with at level 15.

      • mojack411

        Yeah, I got to level 13 in phase 3 :(

        • Alestaos

          Its no worries a few fates/leves/hunting log and u could reach it. As well as the 4man leves for level 10+ Varity of options. And you wont get left behind because of the duty finder and scaling :) Also if your EU and need help etc the linkshell im with on Moogle is great. Were just one friendly active community who help eachother out :)

          • mojack411

            Unfortunately I would play on a US server, thanks for the offer though!

          • Alestaos

            Heh np ^^ Have Fun! And good luck with the game and server etc :)

    • Vash bane

      the only down side is if rumors are true phase 4 starts about time these deals end :(

  • Sentsuizan_93

    Say, does anyone know when the Phase 4 beta will start? Also, that’s quite a good deal I gotta say. And i’m not really into Subscription based MMOs. I’ll pre-order when I get the chance.

    • Colonel Custard

      Rumor mill says August 8th.

    • The producer letter on the 8th should clear everything up

  • I don’t know if I’m going to get involved. Looks neat and all…and then you factor in it’s 13-15 dollars a month standard after that.

    And I’m not that big on MMOs.

    So I highly doubt that I’ll put much more than 10-15 hours a week at most on it and at that price I don’t really think I want to get into something like that.

  • Dragard Kaos

    If only it was like Guild Wars were you buy it and then you can play it whenever. The monthly subscription is what’s preventing me from playing this, mostly because I’m jobless ~_~

    • I have a job it’s just the problem is a wide majority of it goes to bills and loans. If I was being helped out by others or parents I’m sure I wouldn’t blink at it.

      Or…you know…making filthy amounts of money not to care.

  • Noor Mahmoud

    Pre-ordered. Thank you Siliconera, I was waiting for a deal on for the pc digital deluxe =)

  • cirE

    Just PSA/FYI: If you owned the original Final Fantasy XIV, you don’t have to buy it again, you’ll only have to renew your subscription.

  • Time Sage

    I just preordered like two days ago -_-

  • If you live in the UK you can get a physical copy of the normal edition + early access and moogle cap for £13.85 from shopto .

  • Nice deal but doesn’t help me, I’m getting the PC Collectors edition which sold out minutes after it was released

  • Sakurazaki

    Question. I have the old FFXIV game, but I wasn’t the one who used the product code given. Will it be free for me or only the person who used the code?

    • Dagobert

      Activation codes are tied to the account it was registered to. So if you have the other person’s account details and use it then you’ll get what ever it is that they’re offering. Otherwise no, you need a new activation key by buying the game again.

      • Sakurazaki

        Guess I’ll have to get my own then ;(

        Thanks for the answer.

        • Dagobert

          You’re welcome. I learned it the hard way when I bought used copies of guild wars and it’s expansion to find out I can’t play it because the CD key was already registered.

  • Dagobert

    I’m pissed all the physical collector editions pre-orders are sold out. I have to try my luck and hope someone returns it to gamestop like in the first week.

  • Coeurl

    Coeurl Mount *_*

  • Croix Zapp

    My benchmark score is 11K O_O
    Looks like running the game ain’t a problem =P

  • Are there any articles comprehensive list of improvements and give decent impressions on if it’s now a game worth playing?

    I splashed out on it at launch and it was horribly flawed in so many areas that I only lasted 3 (admittedly long) play sessions before giving up. Having to spend an hour wondering around aimlessly in a city because one of the opening quests said “go see xyz in this city”, without giving any directions or map markers to help.

  • Txtsword

    Hey – is that code actually correct for games other than FFXIV? It seems to work for that, but I cannot apply it for Payday2. Is there a separate code?

  • Semih Masat

    Can use this in EU ?
