Recently, Square Enix released Final Fantasy XIV’s expansion Shadowbringers, adding a large chunk of content, two new races, two new classes, and much more to the veteran MMORPG.
With this giveaway, you can win the key to enjoy the best expansion of one of the best MMORPGs and Final Fantasy games on the market, or to save some money on your monthly fees in case you’re already playing.
This time around, courtesy of Square Enix itself, we’ll have six winners, five plus one grand winner.
The grand winner will receive a fantastic physical Collector’s Edition of Shadowbringers either for PS4 or PC (the winner will be given a chance to select their platform of choice).
Each of the five additional winners will get a choice of one among the following prizes:
- The Digital Complete Edition of the game, which includes all the expansions and Shadowbringers as well. It’s is the perfect way to get into it if you have never played.
- A Digital Collector’s Edition of Shadowbringers, which is the perfect option if you have played the game up to Stormblood, but have not purchased Shadowbringers yet.
- A Game Time Code for 60 days, which works if you already have the game and Shadowbringers.
The five additional winners will be given the chance to select one prize among those listed above (excluding the physical Collector’s Edition, of course) and the platform between PS4 and PC.
An additional caveat is that all copies of the game and expansion are for the North American region. They will not work with European Square Enix accounts. The only exception is the Game Time Codes, as you’ll be able to choose if you want one for the North American region or one for the European region.
Speaking of the Physical Collector’s Edition grand prize, it can be shipped worldwide, but again, you’ll need a North American account to use it. You’ll also need to purchase the game and the previous expansions separately if you don’t have them already.

Update: the winners have been decided! Find them below. Congratulations! Please follow the instructions above to claim your prize.
Kelly Kramer: Ooooooh I’m so excited!! I can’t wait to revisit all the original characters! They’ve always been my favorite (none of the replacements have really come close) and I think it’s time they come back into the spotlight and get more depth!
Argos Talvis: Really hype for this game, definitely going for black Eagles, I personally don’t really care about not been able to customize character as long as the character looks okay or good, then no problem, at least i think the avatar looks good enough.
Ami: The game so far is just utterly astounding. The writing is top notch like Giuseppe says; and the flow of the story with the growth of your character through the new expansion areas is almost perfectly balanced (minus a few areas where you might find yourself lagging behind) but overall, it’s heads above both Stormblood and Heavensward.
Josh Silverman: I don’t know what it is about cooking side quest/minigame/minor mechanic stuff in games, but something about it always pulls me in. Definitely cool that this is a component of the next FE game.
