Good price mate, and Happy New Year. I'm thinking, could be thinking wrong, though - but this would require a US version of A Realm Reborn, no?

I don't know 100%, but I think it would?

From a quick search of the internet there are plenty of help requests for people who accidentally purchased codes from NA when they needed EU and vice versa, so I think you might be correct there buzz.

Looks like this is only one for players with US ARR, probably worth putting in the description before someone gets stung.

Not exactly. You don't need A Realm Reborn as it includes Heavensward already, but to redeem the registration code a US PSN account is needed which I don't think is an issue to many since you have encouraged many to have a US one already. Happy new year to yourself too dude.

What you are talking about is valid for people who made digital purchases. Disc version of the game comes with the previous patches. Just like Heavensward that contained A Realm Reborn on the disc. You'd only need a US PSN account to redeem the registration code that gives you 30 days trial of game to play.
It comes with Heavensward, but not the original game - you will need the original game (realm reborn) to play it still etc.

Just to be safe, the trail version of FF XIV starter edition is free on PSN USA. That contains A Realm Reborn. You can just install that and go from there. I am pretty sure this contains Heavenward anyway. I have played Heavenward which contained ARR but need to wait a week to get my order of Stormblood to confirm how it works.

Yes I own it, heavensward might come with realm reborn but this doesn't come with it - otherwise what would be the point in them putting out a complete edition for more money if this expansion contained it all anyway.

Of course you do I just need to wait to receive my copy. My Heavensward and Starter Edition are UK copies so I can check if the US version of Stormblood installs on the UK version of ARR or not (which I think it should) and to answer the original question. Regardless, whether this contains ARR or not, it would be the same case buying US or UK copies.

Only thing that I do not understand is ARR was replaced with Starter Edition a while ago. I mean ARR is officially out. Since you own it, can you explain how did you install it?

I can't comment on if a US will or won't work with a UK version or not, I have a UK square enix account that is linked to the UK version of the game - I know US codes wont work in UK but I cant guess either way with regards to this

My understanding is the installation files are generic, since you had to choose region while installing but to register and use the online service with the US version you obviously need a US account.

I originally had it on the ps3, purchased the collectors edition, I then moved it over to the ps4 when it was free to update and didn't play it for a couple of years, went back to it last year, purchased heavensward on disc and installed it from there - haven't got stormblood yet as I haven't played the game for a few months as I am waiting for my mate to get back into it again as we played it together...plus the Switch is taking over my life atm gaming wise.

No, I was asking because you said you have the Stormblood... I was not able to understand how can one install ARR since it has been officially retired? Starter Edition has replaced it which I think Square should have said requires Starter Edition on the cover instead. If I remember correctly a massive part of installation is through in-game update. that is where it downloads all the patches. The disc installs the launcher only with half of root files. I was hoping to get a straight answer. But, I can see you've gone through the digital route but I was hoping to get an answer about the disc versions. Eitherway, I hope I can clarify the confusions once I get my copy.
Want to get people's thoughts on this game before I buy, give me a good reason too :P.

Just purchase horizon complete edition and FF XV so not sure I really need this

I apologise, must have been a misunderstanding. You commented initially about Stormblood, so I thought you mean you have played it. What I meant was the official release of Heavensward included ARR so based on that assumption and since Stormblood has the Heavensward then it should contain ARR. Also, from the other hand ARR has been officially retired. There is Starter Edition now that has replaced it. Since the cover says it requires ARR and there is no ARR to be purchased, then I assumed the Heavnsward that is on the disc with Stormblood will allow you to install the ARR (possibly through an update?). That is what I was trying to clarify. But the other question left here is if the US copy would install on a UK copy or not. I actually have ordered a preowned copy of ARR on eBay right now to find out it is the case or not since I do not want to try it on Heavensward or Starter that I currently own and want a direct answer, haha.

Heh quite, I wasn't trying to argue, just pointing out what I read - I just know they done a complete edition that they released along side the stormblood expansion for more money - which does state it contains everything. I think the starter pack is just the new name for ARR now but I dunno.

As far as I am aware everything has to be registered through the square enix account for ff xiv - as to if you can mix and match between uk and us is anyones guess

Now let me add more to the confusion. Remember when Heavensward was released they did release this too?

32995997-tyBwE.jpg
They were saying it contains both ARR and HW, BUT the standalone copy of HW contained both too. That is how I played HW that time. Now they have released SB and along with that the Complete Edition. My guess would it is the same trick as before, I just need to try it myself. I mean for a PS4 game, it does not work that way if you go by logic. How could one put a disc in and then install something then add another disc. It is not PC for the love of god.

Heavensward did not contain ARR on disc, and neither does Stormblood. The amazon listing itself states you need ARR.

I think you are getting things mixed up regarding the starter edition and ARR. The starter edition was for the ORIGINAL final fantasy 14, which was universally panned and has since been retired with only a few cosmetic items remaining. A realm reborn is as the name implies the complete reboot of FFXIV a few years later and is currently the base game that allows you to level to 50 and access all content pre-heavensward. Incidentally HW was 'retired' from sale and has been rolled into this expansion so that you don't need to purchase two expansions to be fully up to date.


amazon.co.uk/Fin…ete


I believe that is what you need if you want everything from the getgo.


Given you need ARR already, I was approaching this from the view of adding the game to your existing account and to be honest, I have no idea what the outcome will be. I know for a fact that if you are playing on PC the codes are region locked and you cannot mix and match NA codes with EU accounts and vice versa. However the process for PS4 is simply registering through the store then linking your account to your mog station (FFXIV) account, so it's entirely possible this could bypass the mog station region locking. Although will still be subject to any PSN region locking ofc as you stated.


That being said, I don't know if this will then have you subscribing to pay your monthly fee in dollars and I don't know if it will register it as an NA mog station account, meaning if you wanted it on PC you would need to ensure all versions/expansions you purchased on PC were also NA.


It doesn't sound like it's one for people like myself who already own the game on PC (EU) and are simply looking for a copy to allow them to play on PS4 like myself, but I'd be interested to hear how you get on.

Couple of notes to be added. Heavensward disc on PS4 contained ARR. I do own it and I am saying it based on installing it. What you say is based on what you found on Amazon and Amazon is not the best place to refer to as a source. If Havensward was not including the ARR and since it was an expansion, I would have not been able to play the game (I didn't own it prior to that point).

In regards to the starter edition, here we go (from PSN): (It is an enhanced version of ARR with a few extra bits only).

32996513-fHBPo.jpg
The subscription fee also applies on PS4 too, there is no argument over that at all. All I need to find out at this point is to see if installation files from a US copy works for a UK account or not. And I know the registration codes would not for sure since the codes are what locks the account to another region not the disc.
I can't argue with your experience, simply that everything I've been able to find online states that the expansions do not include the base game.

Are you confirming that your mog station account would also be region locked to NA if you use NA PSN?

I wouldn't have thought you'd have any issues with the installation files or playing the game. Given you can play on any region server they should be identical I would have thought.

That is the bit I am unclear at the moment. PS4 is not region locked so I am not sure if the Mog Station is or not. The code for 30 days trial would defo register on a US accounts only since it is a PSN code but the mog station code needs SE account. And that is what I am waiting to find out more about.

Mog station accounts are 100% region locked regarding NA/EU codes you enter into them, however I've no idea if connecting a US PSN to mog station makes it an NA account or whether the PS4 link is global.

Good luck finding out, unfortunately while FFXIV is an amazing game, SE's customer support is terrible and their systems are convoluted as anything. My brother accidentally registered his mog station account on my PSN profile (as it was auto-logged in), and so now he has to play via my PSN account and I have to play via his PSN account if I want to play on PS4. I tried repeatedly to get them to swap it, remove it or do anything that would fix the issue (ARR on PS4 was about £4 at the time, so I didn't even care if they outright deleted it off my account), and they were zero help.

I think I'll keep waiting for a cheap stormblood deal on PS4, I only really want it for in case the mood strikes me to play on PS4 instead of PC...which to date it never has lol.

Just giving an update on the outcome. I have received my copy few days ago but didn't manage to test it until today (busy). As I suspected as soon as you put the disc in, ARR installs (requires 38. Once you start the game, the launcher will update to Stormblood and it asks you another 23gb of space for installation. The promotion code/registration code only can be applied on a US PSN account (not unexpected). Once registered, game is region locked as expected. However, if you register the game with a UK registration code it will happily start on a UK account for you. Also, the UK square enix account cannot be linked to the US region registered game. So just to summarise all the questions;

1. A Realm Reborn is included on the disc, unlike what sqaure enix is advertising. You don't need the ARR separately.
2. The promotion/registration code will lock the game to US regions only. A US square enix would be needed for registration.
3. As to my surprise, the game does not come with that 30 days trial that you would get with other versions. You will need to start purchasing subscription as soon as you are logged into SE account in-game.

Hope that helps to rectify all the confusions.
Good to know, thanks for the update. I'm very surprised to hear about ARR being included as default! Makes the complete version seem like a bit of a scam. Although you do get the free month I suppose.

Yes I think that’s the whole difference between complete edition and bloodstorm. You get 30 days with that one which doesn’t come with this. But I assume that 30 days is not going to work on current accounts and is for new users.
