I bought the game today on the square enix site, but no codes or download link?

So I pre-ordered the game through the square enix website today, and got an email confirming that I bought it, and telling me to download it. Only problem is they didn't give me a key, and there is no download button on the order confirmation page.

Do I just have to wait?

Digital river doesn't give you an email like that. Your receipt or email should have an 18 digit code on it.

The email should also have 'go here to redeem this code' instructions.

http://preorder.na.finalfantasyxiv.com/

You'll need to follow the directions on that page. Punch in your 18 digit code. It will then take you to another page. This page will have a 20 digit EARLY ACCESS code. If you stop at this point you have ONLY registered your preorder.

You will need to read and follow the instructions on that page to get early access. Or you can just load up the game and put the early access code into the client, according to the directions, but I didn't do that and don't trust Square.

Thanks man, but I don't see any 18 digit code in the email they sent me :( just the order details and instructions on how to go to the registration page to register it.

But no code.. maybe I have to wait until the 27th since I ordered it today?

this is pretty much all I see:

I just talked about this in another thread.

http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/678050-final-fantasy-xiv-online-a-realm-reborn/67069205

if you ordered from Square Enix's official site you don't get the early access code until it ships, which takes a few days, so it renders early access useless.
What I did was canceled my order and re-ordered on Amazon and got the code immediately.
If you want early access you may want to try this.

This worked perfectly! I canceled my order on the official square enix site, and then ordered it from Amazon, instant code and now Im downloading!

Thanks for the help! :D

tried buying from amazon like you guys did, but expected shipping date was Sept 5-9? don't know how you managed to find a digital copy.
