Square Enix announced the upcoming launch of the Square Enix Account System and Square Enix Security Token to be implemented in Europe, Japan and North America on 7th April, 2009. Offering additional account safeguards to players of their flagship MMO, Final Fantasy XI, these new initiatives provide for a higher level of account security. The new system will utilize the Square Enix Security Token, which will be available to purchase for €9.99 and £7.99 via the PlayOnline Viewer.
Creating a Square Enix Account is free and can be done by anyone via the official Square Enix website. With this new system in place beginning on 7th April, 2009, Square Enix Accounts will be compatible with Final Fantasy XI and PlayOnline, as well as future online services.
After registering a Square Enix Account and purchasing the Square Enix Security Token, players can then assign the token to their PlayOnline ID(s). The token generates a unique password every time it is activated, ensuring complete security. The implementation of these new features is an extension of Square Enix’s commitment to continuous service for our customers.
Additionally, players who purchase a security token will also receive the brand new in-game bonus, the “Moogle Satchel”. The Moogle Satchel provides additional inventory space and benefits all characters on the PlayOnline account(s). The space provided by the Moogle Satchel is equal to the character’s Gobbie Bag capacity and can also expand along with it. In order to utilise the bonus, it will be necessary for the customer’s PlayOnline ID to be linked to a Square Enix Account.
