Early access for PS3?

#1NowNowEverySamPosted 8/11/2013 1:48:30 PM
Sorry if the answer is blindingly obvious, but how will this work for PS3 users? Will there even be early access for PS3 users? If I pre-order the PS3 game, will I get sent a link to download the client on the 24th?

When I looked on Amazon, it said nothing about 'early access' being included.

You get a code sent to you telling you to go to a website and enter your e-mail. Square Enix will e-mail you in regards of the Early Access when the time comes. It's stated that it'll start on the 24th and will continue through launch so there will not be any downtime.

Yes there is early access for PS3.

We're not sure how, though. What I assume is that, like the Beta Client, they will give you a download option from the Playstation Store to download the client.

now this leaves the question of whether we'll even need the disc or not...personally I'm hoping no.

Amazon should have emailed you a code. You use that code on the 20th when they let you put it on your account.

Cool, thanks guys. I'll be on holiday until the 24th, so can I just put in the code then?

So amazon will send me a code once I pre-order?

Phase 4 client is used for P4, early access and retail.

Of course you'll keep the characters.

For some reason people keep thinking Early Release is a demo or another beta or something. It gives you access to the game three days early using the same client you use for the full game as well which must be downloaded, especially if you were in Phase 4.
