Final Fantasy XVI is heading to PS5 on June 22, 2023, and preorders for the highly anticipated title are now open. Three versions are up for grab, along with a few preorder bonuses that make it worth reserving a copy of the game today if you know you’ll be playing it at launch. There’s also an elusive (not to mention expensive) collector’s edition available on the Square Enix Store--although the initial batch of preorders sold out quickly after going live, so you’ll need to pay close attention if you want to snag a copy in the future. Here’s a closer look at where to preorder Final Fantasy XVI along with everything offered with each edition.
Final Fantasy XVI Preorder Bonuses
Preorder bonuses are a bit confusing for Final Fantasy XVI. Three different in-game items are available, but whether you get them depends both on where you preorder the game and which version you opt for. Just about every retailer is offering the Cat Sith Charm (which boosts the rate at which you gain Gil) along with the Braveheart weapon, but the Scholar’s Spectacles item (which boosts XP gain) is only available with the following editions:
- Collector’s Edition
- Deluxe Edition (Digital)
- Standard Edition (Digital)
In other words, you’ll want to pay close attention to the fine print when preordering FFXVI to ensure you’re getting the best bonuses at your preferred retailer.
Preorder Final Fantasy XVI Standard Edition
Preorder Final Fantasy XVI Deluxe Edition
Drop an extra $30, and you’ll get a cloth world map of Valisthea and the Special Clive Rosfield steelbook Case. It’s worth noting that this is different from the steelbook offered with Best Buy preorders--so purchasing from that retailer will actually net you two unique steelbooks.
Preorder Final Fantasy XVI Collector’s Edition
It’s not cheap, but at least the Final Fantasy XVI Collector’s Edition is filled to the brim with awesome collectibles. Along with your preorder bonuses, you’ll get the following:
- Final Fantasy XVI base game
- Premium Statue - Phoenix vs Ifrit
- Metal Eikon pin collection
- Special Clive Rosfield steelbook case
- Cloth world map of Valisthea
- Bonus in-game weapon: Blood Sword
- Digital mini artbook
- Digital mini soundtrack
- The Realms of Valisthea wall banners (6-inch height printed cloth banners)
- Final Fantasy XVI preorder steelbook
