How to Play Final Fantasy XIV Endwalker Early
To play the Final Fantasy XIV / FFXIV Endwalker early access, you first need to have pre-ordered the expansion. There’s still a bit of time left, so move quickly if you want to be able to play the new content this early. Next, on Mac and PC, log into Mog Station and go to the “Your Account” tab. Select Service Account and then pick Registration Codes. From there, choose the Enter Pre-order Bonus Code option and paste your twenty-digit code where prompted. On Steam, when you pre-order the expansion, right-click FF14 and click “Manage.” In the CD Keys tab is where you’ll find the aforementioned code.
On PlayStation, after you complete the pre-order, you need to register it on your Square Enix account. Go into your console settings and go into Account Information. Select Services List and find Final Fantasy XIV A Realm Reborn and confirm your pre-order that way. You should now be able to enter the early access when it launches.
