Final Fantasy 14 has had a hell of a ride but has made the leap to its third generation of PlayStation hardware as of today, when it arrives on PS5.
Offering higher resolution, rapid loading times, and a clearer interface, it's likely to be the best place to play the MMO - at least on console.
Xbox players, you'll have to sit this one out a little longer, although Square Enix has "no obstacles" to making the jump to Microsoft's hardware in the future.
The game comes to PS5 alongside patch 5.55 - here's what's included:
- New Main Scenario Quests
- Chronicles of a New Era Quests
- New Side Story Quests
- New Chapters For New Game +
- Housing Updates
- And plenty more.
