      As we approach the one-week mark until the official release of Dawntrail, the Final Fantasy XIV art team has prepared another unique illustration for us today, showing the Summoner and their Carbuncle.
      Summers are mighty tacticians with the ability to call upon primal beings to aid them in battle! They have the unique ability to summon and bend the essences of primals like Bahamut and Phoenix to their will and receive their aid during a fight! Always by their side is their carbuncle friend, ensuring you are never traveling alone! Of course, as the image demonstrates, food is also an important part of pre-fight preparations! Buff-food all around!

      With Dawntrail, Summoners will receive an additional entity they can summon! You can discover more about it in our updated guide below:
      Final Fantasy XIV - Summoner Guide Moreover, if you want to know what else awaits you in Dawntrail, check out our overview here: Dawntrail Hub
      And last but not least, click the image below to pre-order Final Fantasy XIV's next expansion, if you haven't already done so:

      Players all over the world are excited for the early-access launch of Final Fantasy XIV's upcoming expansion, Dawntrail. However, depending on the platform, early access is not automatically given to everyone who pre-orders. Here is what you have to do to get early access!
      Early access begins on Friday, June 28, 2024, at 2:00 a.m. PDT, 11:00 GMT, allowing players to dive into the full version of the game before its official release on Tuesday, July 2, 2024. 
      Playing Dawntrail a few days early is a privilege granted to those who pre-order the game. If you pre-ordered through PlayStation®5, PlayStation®4, or Xbox Series X|S, you are automatically registered for both early access and the full game upon purchase, and you will not need any code.

      For players on Windows, Mac, or Steam, it is important to register the pre-order bonus code to participate in early access. You should have immediately received the early-access code per email after purchasing the game. You can register this code through the Mog Station; a special button only for Early Access codes should be available on your account.
      As for the release codes for PC users, Square Enix Store customers who have purchased Dawntrail will start receiving their registration codes via email starting Monday, June 24. The distribution is sequential, so patience is advised, as the process is designed to ensure all players receive their codes well before the official game launch.
      The option to enter a Dawntrail registration code will only become available on the Mog Station after the game's official launch post-early access. Any attempts to register the code beforehand will result in an "invalid code" error.

      Square Enix also reminds players to be mindful of spoilers. While there are no restrictions on content discussion, posting, or streaming in adherence to the Material Usage License Agreement, players are encouraged to consider their fellow gamers who may start at the official launch or prefer to progress at their own pace, and to avoid sharing spoiler-related content.
      While you wait for early access to begin, you can read our related guides to learn more about Dawntrail and the changes that Final Fantasy XIV's next expansion will bring. Furthermore, there is still time to pre-order Dawntrail, if you have not yet done so! Simply click on the image below.
