Final Fantasy XIV Dawntrail launches July 2, 2024, early access June 28, collector's edition revealed

Earlier today at a PAX East panel Final Fantasy XIV director and producer Naoki Yoshida revealed that the game’s fifth expansion, Dawntrail, will release on July 2nd, 2024. Early access for the game will begin the preceding Friday, on June 28th. Players who pre-order the game will be granted access to the early access phase, and you can start pre-ordering the game March 26th at 9:00am Pacific.

Details about the different editions were also revealed. Like the Endwalker expansion, there won’t be a physical disc release of the game nor its Collector’s Edition for PS4/5 and Xbox – but should players want to get their hands on the physical goods – there will be a Collector’s Box option as well.

Players who are just looking for digital items can opt for the Digital Collector’s Edition, and pre-order gifts can be obtained before the expansion’s launch when your pre-order is confirmed. The in-game Moogle Delivery service will then send you the gifts.

Check out the goods below! While you’re here, take a look at the recent changes that came with Patch 6.58, which launched March 19th.
