We originally wrote about the delay for Final Fantasy XIV: The Complete Edition last week. The Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers release date was July 2 and while most regions got the latest expansion to Final Fantasy XIV, the India release date for The Complete Edition has been pushed back once again by a week. The original delay had it set for July 9. A listing for the game on Games The Shop now has the July 16 date instead of July 9. Considering that Games The Shop is owned by the game’s distributor, e-xpress Interactive, it’s safe to say that this change is accurate. The Mako Reactor has got in touch with e-xpress for comment and will update this story if we hear from the company.
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: Shadowbringers and The Complete Edition released on July 2 in Europe. They are available digitally on PSN and through Square Enix for PC in India. The retail release is now set for July 16.
