Just 17 days until you can revisit the land of Final Fantasy XIV through the reworked A Realm Reborn. For those who have already pre-ordered, your waiting days are dwindling, with early access just announced to start on August 24th.
The last open Beta session is now scheduled for August 17 through 19th. If you’ve participated in past Betas and have already resolved to join, you’re in luck: the Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn pre-order has dropped to 25% (vs. 20% from a week ago).
The Collector’s Edition is now only $37.50, whereas the Standard Edition will run you $22.50. Both pre-orders will include early access and in-game pre-order goodies. The Digital Collector’s Edition will receive the Helm of Light, Baby Behemoth Minion, Behemoth Barding, and Coeurl Mount.
Already have FFXIV Version 1.0? No need to shell out any more cash – you’ll be getting the reworked game for free, although you’re still on hook for the $12.99 monthly subscription fee. Owners of the original FFXIV Collector’s Edition will also get a direct upgrade to the A Realm Reborn’s Collector’s Edition. The items will be delivered to you via Moogle Letter when ARR launches. The full details on getting ARR for free and account limits can be found here.
The 25% off coupon code GMG25-OGRUH-7SM8H will work until August 16th at 8AM Pacific. Beyond FFXIV ARR, a few select titles also qualify for the 25% off code, including the upcoming Batman Arkham Origins and the remastered NES Duck Tales (Steam key).
|Game Title||MSRP||% Off||Sale Price|
|Batman Arkham Origins
|Lost Planet 3
|FFXIV: A Realm Reborn Digital Collector’s Edition
|FFXIV: A Realm Reborn Standard Edition
|Duck Tales: Remastered
A few more decent titles not in the 25% batch but still cheaper than MSRP can be found below. Titanfall is far from its release date, but remains noteworthy as the only pre-order deal with a credit or cash-back offer.
