The second day of Final Fantasy Fan Fest 2021 kicked off with a Live Letter From the Producer, the regularly scheduled livestream that outlines each major update to Final Fantasy XIV. Director and producer Naoki Yoshida led the presentation and detailed what’s coming to the new main story quests, the Save the Queen questline, and the full PS5 version of the game.
Patch 5.55 is set to go live on May 25 and it’ll be the last major update leading into the upcoming Endwalker expansion. Additionally, the PS5 version of the game will officially go into service on May 25–this updated version of the game went into live beta in April and has been playable ever since for owners of the PS4 version playing on PS5, so the official service date is more of a formality.
FFXIV on the PS5 supports native 4K resolution, higher frame rates, a high resolution UI, DualSense haptic feedback, new trophies, and 3D audio support. There are also graphics options for 1440p resolution and better frame rate and 1080p for an even consistent frame rate. Owners of the PS4 version of the game can upgrade to the PS5 version for free.
