Buddy Pass and 2.0Follow

Hi there,

A couple of quick questions that hopefully someone can help me answer..

1) I have a buddy pass that my friend gave me when he bought the CE when it first came out. If I want to use it once 2.0 comes out, will I be able to? How will it work if there's a free trial period for 2.0 yet I don't want to use the buddy pass to install the software or else there's overlap of the "free trial period" as well as the free 30 days with the buddy pass.

2) How will 2.0 be distributed? Will people have to repurchase the game? Or will those who bought the original 1.0 game be able to play 2.0 via a large download or something?

Thanks!

1) Good question, one that would probably be better asked on the offical forums, I would assume yes but this is SE afterall

2) It will be by a massive download. not by re-purchase.

1) Buddy passes don't expire, at least.. they don't say they do anywhere on the pass. When 2.0 is released there will be a 30 day trial anyway so it's possible that you could wind up with 60 days free.

2) Just as the above poster said, the client will be available via download. Consider 2.0 a version update just like any other in that regard.

Thanks for your responses!

Yes, I tried to post on the official forums and I made a square enix account in order to..but it still wouldn't work. I think I need to add a service account which I presume is the subscription service before I can post on the lodestone?..

Yeah you can read posts, but you need an active service account to post there.

I can't remember where I read it, but the 30 day trial period is a one time offer. Either you get it now with the buddy pass and again with 2.0, or you only get it once after 2.0. 2.0 is a free download to current users of 1.0, so not sure if they (the left over buddy passes not registered, if still out there) will work with 2.0, but I assume that they will.

I have never seen a company allow duplicate offers such as you describe, so unless you activate >30 days prior to 2.0, then the answer is no, you only get the 30 days. (The 30 days with 2.0 is a "thank -you" from SE to current subscribers)
