Square Enix has announced that pre-orders for Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood are now open. The second expansion to Square Enix's MMORPG is set to launch on June 20th on PS4, PC and Mac in the UK, and a Collector's Edition of the game will be available alongside the regular boxed versions. The Mac edition is digital only.
The Collector's Edition of the game currently costs 179.99 for both PS4 and PC on the EU Square Enix Store and will include a special Stormblood art box, a Stormblood art book, a cloth map of Eorzea, a Stormblood logo sticker, a Zenos yae Galvus figurine statue and three exclusive in-game items, the Syldra Mount, Wind-up Bartz Minion and Chicken Knife.
There will also be a 44.99 digital PC Collector's Edition available, but this version of the game will only include the three in-game items mentioned above. The standard version, meanwhile, will cost 39.99 on PS4 and 29.99 on PC and Mac.
Regardless of which edition of the game customers buy, there will be a variety of pre-order items available for all versions of the game. These include Early Access to the game servers ahead of the game's official launch, a Wind-up Red Mage Minion and Ala Mhigan Earrings. PS4 buyers will also earn themselves an exclusive PS4 theme and avatar.
In this second expansion of Final Fantasy XIV, players will have a whole new chapter of the game to explore. The level cap will be raised from 60 to 70, new jobs will become available opening up new ways of play, and new areas will be available to explore with its new swimming and diving mechanics. A fourth residential area will also come into effect, and new high-level raids will be waiting to challenge players further down the line.
Final Fantasy XIV currently has more than six million players across the world, and more Stormblood details are due to be announced next month at Square Enix's European Fan Festival event.
