Didn't see this immediately searching the forums, and I'm tired and going to bed.

Quote:
We are pleased to announce that Early Access for FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn will begin on Saturday, August 24, 2013 at 2:00 a.m. (PDT)!

* Participants of Early Access are eligible to play straight into official service, which will begin on Tuesday, August 27, 2013.
* Those who have either registered a pre-order code or fulfilled the requirements for Legacy status are eligible to participate in Early Access.
* The game client from Beta Test phase 4 (open beta test) can also be used as the game client for Early Access. You do not need to uninstall the Beta Test phase 4 client and install anything else.


Assuming the client info goes for PS3 and PC.

Specifying "Legacy Status" seems to settle that regular 1.0 players are not automatically eligible.

That is correct. Only 1.0 Legacy Accounts get early access. Regular 1.0 people (myself included) have to wait until next Tuesday to play. Unless of course you purchased a copy of ARR and attached the pre-order code to your original account (myself included)

SE is making me an early riser this summer lol, I've gotten up at 5 for every beta weekend. Complete opposite of FFXI circa 2005 when I was going to bed at 5 am instead.

I've applied a pre order code to my 1.0 account but I can't find anywhere that confirms from SE it will work. Opened a ticket a day or two ago and no reply from them.

Going to be gutted if I can't pay Saturday. Anyone heard from SE that it WILL work ? I know it sounds like it should but you never know with SE>

nope, CE 1.0 gets CE 2.0 items(helmet of light, baby behemoth ect) but no early access

And here I thought getting rid of the 24-36hour spawn timer HNMs would prevent these ridiculous wake up times. Well played SE, well played.

You do get a new set of Collector's items for ARR, but you also get to download the complete game for free and get to play the first 14 days starting on Aug. 27 for free.

My son and I both foolishly and paranoidly uninstalled the Phase 4 Beta but at 10:00 a.m. EDT today was able to begin downloading the 7700MB game client. I left it running and went to work, half done. My dog is prolly leveling a Galka, or whatever they're called, right now. P.S. Thanks to all who posted on 1.0 non-Legacy ***** me status, early access, and Code 3 errors. I've lurked this forum for 3 days and it eased my mind! Got in quickly last night after pre-ordering from SE directly. Wish I'd had solid and updated info on whether or not to uninstall the Beta client (typical SE, right?) but it looks like I'll be ready for Saturday. BTW did anyone else get a customer survey email from SE after the 3102 fiasco? Or an email asking them to pre-order? I got both and got sucked into the pre-order @ $10/day. Enjoy my money, pusherman!
