The FFXIV Endwalker pre order gives early access to the Final Fantasy XIV expansion and bonus items.

Endwalker is the latest expansion for the hugely popular Final Fantasy XIV Online MMO, which was originally released back in 2013, but, like its competitor World Of Warcraft, has had various expansions in the years since which have brought new players to the game and kept it fresh. The full game is due for release on the 23rd of November 2021. Have a read of our Final Fantasy Games In Order page to get yourself familiar with all the games in this iconic series.
