Have Final Fantasy XI? Are You Going to Play FF XIV? Square Enix has Some Gifts for You

With its PC version releasing world wide on September 30th, Square Enix wants to thank all the hardcore fans who have stuck with Final Fantasy XI for the last 8 years or even those who have been playing for a short time. They’ll be getting a special trio of gifts, including a discount if you play both games, a special item, and the ability to carry over your name so everyone knows who you are!

Unfortunately since the PS3 version will not be out till March of 2011, there is no information on what PS2 or Xbox players will be getting if they move their account to a PC.

SQUARE ENIX REVEALS A TRIO OF BONUSES FOR PLAYERS THAT SUBSCRIBE TO BOTH FINAL FANTASY XI AND FINAL FANTASY XIV

As the upcoming September 30th, 2010 launch of FINAL FANTASY XIV for Windows(r) PC nears, Square Enix has exciting news for current players of FINAL FANTASY XI.

In appreciation of the years of adventuring that fans of the series have enjoyed, Square Enix is pleased to offer several bonuses for those that wish to experience both online adventures.

Bonus 1: Save $5.95 on the base FINAL FANTASY XI Monthly Subscription

Details:

* The FINAL FANTASY XI monthly service fee will be discounted from $12.95 USD to $7.00 USD per month on FINAL FANTASY XI accounts linked to the same Square Enix Account as FINAL FANTASY XIV.

o Applies only to FINAL FANTASY XI subscriptions that are paid for by credit card

o The discount will not be applied when the FINAL FANTASY XIV subscription is in its free period, as determined on the 25th of each month

o Does not apply to FINAL FANTASY XI accounts during their free trial period

o Only applies to one FINAL FANTASY XI account for each FINAL FANTASY XIV service account

Bonus 2:

A Special FINAL FANTASY XIV In-Game Item

FINAL FANTASY XIV players with an active FINAL FANTASY XI account will begin their adventure with a special in-game item: Hermes’ Shoes. “Named after an elder god, all but forgotten in the modern age, these gold-tipped shoes have been crafted with the lightest of leathers, making them optimal for use by heralds and noterunners.”

Details:

* For qualifying players, all playable characters created on the FINAL FANTASY XIV service account will start the game with the bonus item automatically in their inventory.

In order to qualify for the bonus item:

o An active FINAL FANTASY XI account must be linked before the FINAL FANTASY XIV playable character is created

o At the time the FINAL FANTASY XIV character is created, the FINAL FANTASY XI content ID registered to the linked FINAL FANTASY XI account must not be invalid or cancelled

o The linked FINAL FANTASY XI account must not be within the free trial period

Bonus 3:

Transfer Your FINAL FANTASY XI Character Name into FINAL FANTASY XIV

* When creating a new playable character on a FINAL FANTASY XIV service account, a character name used from the linked FINAL FANTASY XI account can be transferred to FINAL FANTASY XIV.

o Transfer of a FINAL FANTASY XI playable character name will not be applicable in the following instances:

* If the FINAL FANTASY XIV playable character is created before an active FINAL FANTASY XI account is linked

* If, at the time that the FINAL FANTASY XIV character is created, the Content ID on the linked FINAL FANTASY XI is invalid or has been cancelled

* If the linked FINAL FANTASY XI account is within the free trial period

* If no FINAL FANTASY XI character exists on the linked FINAL FANTASY XI account

* Please note that in some instances, it may take upwards of 24 hours for the FINAL FANTASY XI character name to be selectable in FINAL FANTASY XIV.
