An open beta for the game will be beginning on April 13th. This is the same day as 5.5. It will feature better framerate, 4K resolution and faster loading times. The 4K version will focus on making the game look the best it can. There will also be a full HD 2K mode that focuses more on framerate. Changes can be made in real-time.
Will there be an upgrade option for ps4 users?
We’ve seen it before with games charging gamers to upgrade. Will Final Fantasy XIV do the same? The answer is no! PS4 users will be able to download and upgrade to the PS5 version at no extra cost.
Final Fantasy XIV Endwalker
At the Showcase it was also announced that a new expansion is coming to the game. Endwalker continues and concludes the story that has been told for the last decade, but will not be the end of the game.
The story will see the warrior of light embark on a journey to the moon as they look to solve questions that many will want to be answered. What has brought about the final days? What is to be found on the moon? We’ve been promised that the team will be looking to explore all of these questions and more in the expansion.
There will also be new areas, new jobs and lots more. We know that one of the jobs is a healer called Sage and that the other is a melee DPS. Luckily if you missed out on the showcase this will tell you everything you need to know about what’s to come for Final Fantasy XIV.
If you want to catch up with Final Fantasy XIV before the launch of Endwalker then you can buy it now, with all four previously released expansions, right now on the GameByte Shop.
