Final Fantasy XIV will be getting a free PS5 patch

As more and more people get their hands on the latest consoles, developers and publishers have begun to upgrade many of their live service titles to offer higher performance modes, taking advantage of this new hardware. The latest title to receive a PS5 patch announcement is Final Fantasy XIV, which will be arriving in April.

Square Enix has officially announced via a press release that the popular MMO Final Fantasy XIV will be getting an upgrade on PS5 this upcoming April. Launching first in open beta on the 13th of April, this next-gen patch will bring with it a number of enhancements including “significantly improved frame rates, faster load times, 4K resolution support and more” – though no specific technical details were provided.

This PS5 version will be offered to all PS4 players for no additional cost – though of course the game itself operates using a subscription-based model. Though no official date has been announced for the patch, Square Enix confirmed that it will go live following the conclusion of the open beta period, which as mentioned, will begin on the 13th of April.

With over 20 million registered players, Final Fantasy XIV is stronger and more popular than ever. It therefore makes perfect sense that Square Enix would want to capitalise on this by introducing a PS5 version, giving the now 7 year old game a fresh coat of paint.
