Can I link my Final Fantasy 14 account to Steam?

Answered by Antonio Sutton

You can link your Final Fantasy XIV account to Steam, but there are a few requirements that need to be met.

Firstly, you need to have an active Square Enix account with a Final Fantasy XIV license. This license needs to match the one on your Steam account. To confirm this, you can follow these steps:

1. Open Steam and click on your Steam display name in the top right corner.
2. From the dropdown menu, select “Account details”.
3. On the account details page, scroll down to the “Store and purchase history” section.
4. Click on “View licenses and product key activations”.

This will show you a list of licenses and activations associated with your Steam account. Look for your Final Fantasy XIV license and ensure that it matches the one on your Square Enix account.

Once you have confirmed that the licenses match, you can proceed with linking your Final Fantasy XIV account to Steam. Here’s how:

1. Launch the Steam client on your computer.
2. In the top left corner, click on “Games” and select “Activate a Product on Steam”.
3. Follow the prompts to enter your Final Fantasy XIV product key. This key can usually be found in the email or receipt you received when purchasing the game.
4. After entering the product key, Steam will begin the installation process for Final Fantasy XIV. This may take some time, so be patient.
5. Once the installation is complete, you can launch the game through Steam.

It’s important to note that once you have linked your Final Fantasy XIV account to Steam, you will need to access the game through Steam in order to play. This means that you won’t be able to launch the game using the standalone Final Fantasy XIV launcher.

Additionally, it’s worth mentioning that linking your account to Steam does not transfer any progress or characters between platforms. If you have an existing Final Fantasy XIV account on a different platform (such as PlayStation or Windows), you will not be able to merge or transfer that data to your Steam account. Each platform has its own separate account and progress.

Yes, you can link your Final Fantasy XIV account to Steam, but make sure that your licenses match and be aware that progress and characters cannot be transferred between platforms.
