Is the registration for XIV the same as the XI one? Follow

Do you go through the same interface you do for XIV as you did for XI? I want to join since it is basically free to play... but I don't know if I want to jump through fiery rings just to make an account. I searched the forum but couldn't find my exact questions. Thanks in advanced!

Well, now it's the same (or close to it), but about 2 weeks ago it wasn't. Anyhow, no, XIV doesn't use playonline, it uses the Square Enix account system. All done through an actual web browser now, it's straightforward enough I suppose, but still not hassle free like every other MMO out on the market. If they ever start charging for the game, you'll have to jump through a few more hoops to get payment going. Overall, better than playonline, but only slightly.

Okay thanks for the response! Can you register without having the game yet? If so, can I have the link? I don't really know where to register... (And I'm glad it doesn't use PlayOnline, such a hassle.)

Can start here, but you'll obviously need the registration codes for XIV to get going once you're registered and such.

Okay, thank you very much! I got an account created. Once I add a key from FFXIV will I be required to give a credit card even though it is currently free to play?
