According to the latest news, Final Fantasy XIV is coming to PlayStation 5. This was announced by none other than developer Square-Enix himself on Friday. The official open beta will start on 13th April 2021.
A teaser trailer shows the game running in 4K resolution. As of now, the company said it will have significantly improved frame rates and faster load times. If you’re registered in the PS4 version of the game, the new optimized version will be playable at no extra cost during the beta.
Interestingly, Final Fantasy XIV also will get a new expansion pack called Endwalker which features the climax of the Hydaelyn and Zodiark story, in which Warriors of Light will encounter an even greater calamity than ever before as they travel to the far reaches of Hydaelyn and in the moon.
Apart from bringing the long running story arc that began with A Realm Reborn to its conclusion, Endwalker will mark a new beginning for the beloved MMO. This will set the stage for new adventures that longtime fans and new players can enjoy together.
Back in 2010, when Final Fantasy XIV was originally released, the game received so much backlash from players and critics that its original director and producer left the project and the developer shut down its servers in 2012. However, within a year, in 2013, it re launched as Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn.
