DURING the Final Fantasy XIV Announcement Showcase over the weekend, Director and Producer Naoki Yoshida revealed that Final Fantasy XIV Online is coming to Playstation 5. The open beta for the next-gen version will be available from April 13. This comes just in time for the Patch 5.5 release with both launching on the same day. The open beta will be available to both new comers and veteran Final Fantasy XIV Online Playstation 4 players alike at no extra charge.
A trailer for the PS5 version was also shared during the Showcase, highlighting its amazing upgrades. There’s an expected upgrade in resolution/frame-rate to come but the faster and almost instant loading time shown between areas is so unbelievably faster than on PS4. And for the first time ever on console, Final Fantasy XIV Online will be shown in stunning 4K resolution.
