How FF14 Dawntrail early access and launch codes work

If you're having trouble accessing the game after the launch of FF14 Dawntrail, here are the steps to follow to redeem your launch code.

FF14 Dawntrail early access and launch day codes

Are you locked out of the FF14 Dawntrail expansion after the official release? If you’re having trouble figuring out how FF14 Dawntrail early access codes work, here’s what you need to know on how to transition from early access into the full launch of the game.

It’s slightly confusing when going into the FF14 Dawntrail release date, as for those that have pre-ordered the game, you’ll be sent two codes: an early access code and a launch date code. Though the early access code will take you over the official launch date, it won’t give you full and complete access to the FF14 expansion and you’ll need to redeem the second code for the full experience.

FF14 Dawntrail access codes

The first code, the early access code, gives you access to the game from June 28, but this code will stop working a week later, on July 5, though this takes us past the official July 2 launch date.

For the second code, you won’t be able to input this into the Mog Station until launch day, so although your game will still work on the original early access code, it will stop working on July 5, and you will no longer have access to the game. You must make sure to input the launch code before this date, and if you find you’re unable to access your game, this could be why.

Now hopefully, you should be able to access the new expansion using your second FF14 Dawntrail code, but if you’re still having trouble accessing the game, check out our guide to the FF14 server status, and all FF14 Twitch drops and how to get them.
