Do you have to buy ARR?

#1MechachuPosted 10/14/2012 1:27:08 PM
I never really see a straight answer. Usually it's like "If you subscribe before this date you don't have to buy it"

It's too late for that. So, if I bought FFXIV (bought the collectors at launch) am I going to have to purchase ARR as well?

If you already have the game, then no. ARR will be treated as an update for current owners of the game.

So, by current do you mean people who have already registered and played FFXIV? Because I have never played or had an account. Would I be able to buy the game right now for $10-$20 and have the key for when a realm reborn launches then get a free upgrade?

I'll laugh if they try to release ARR as a 60 game again..

Well Amazon has it listed for $30:

if you have bought the game or have it regardless if have played it or not (subscribed) you do not need need to go out and buy another copy of the game it'll just be a major update for those owners of FFXIV.

Wait, so if I don't have the game... can I just buy A Realm Reborn and be done with it? Do I need to buy the regular FFXIV box too?

Yessir you can just wait for A Realm Reborn to come out and buy it. You do not need to purchase an original copy of FFXIV.
