With Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers set to release next week, Square Enix’s distributor has finally announced retail plans for the newest physical edition of the game for India. In the past, the Final Fantasy XIV retail edition on PS4 included a code that grants access to you and you don’t need the disc to actually play it after installing the client. It is unclear whether that will be the case with this version as well. The PC version will be on disc and includes a code for the EU version of the game usable on Square Enix’s own client, so if you want Final Fantasy XIV: The Complete Edition on Steam, your only option is to well, buy it from there.
Final Fantasy XIV: The Complete Edition contents
Final Fantasy XIV: The Complete Edition is the best version to buy for newcomers to the MMORPG. It also includes 30 days of play time. The PC version does not include a Steam code but a Square Enix account code. If you want it on PC via Steam, you can only buy it on Steam directly at a much higher price

Final Fantasy XIV: The Complete Edition India pricing
As with most Square Enix games in India, retail pricing is much better than digital pricing. Right now, the PSN price for just Shadowbringers (the expansion still requires owning the base game) is Rs. 2997. The deluxe edition is Rs. 3746. Final Fantasy XIV: The Complete Edition is up for pre-order on PS4 and PC for Rs. 2499 at retail stores. That’s cheaper than buying the base game and expansions digitally.
Final Fantasy XIV Time Cards in India
As of now, these are not available officially. If you own the PC or PS4 version in India through PSN or PC digital, you need to match your account region to the time card region. PSN and PC digital editions of the game in India need an EU region time card. You will likely have to import them yourself from Amazon UK or any other EU region Amazon or buy them on any key selling sites.
Final Fantasy XIV: The Complete Edition India release date
Both the PS4 and PC retail editions in India release on July 2 and are available for pre-order on Games The Shop. It is unclear whether other online retailers will be selling it as of this writing.
