Final Fantasy XIV: In addition, the studio has worked on an optimized version for Sony’s console, which will incorporate performance and visual improvements.Square Enix has announced that from today April 13 it is possible to enjoy the open beta of Final Fantasy XIV Online on PS5. This version continues its testing just as Patch 5.5 is released, which not only sets the stage for the next big expansion, Endwalker, but also offers new features and improvements. Death Unto Dawn adds a story that connects directly with the aforementioned expansion, not to mention the arrival of the third chapter of YoRHa: Dark Apocalypse, a raid based on NieR that has had the participation of Yosuke Saito and Toko Taro.
The PS5 version offers much shorter loading times, as well as a greatly increased frame rate and a resolution that reaches 4K. Regarding the control, it has not been necessary to adapt the gameplay to the controls, since this production already came out on the PS3 and PS4 consoles. However, it does benefit from the haptic functions of the DualSense. As if that weren’t enough, take advantage of the 3D sound of the console.
