Next-Gen Enhancements

As we reported last month, the 1.5 update will bring the game to PS5 and Xbox Series X/S.

While the Xbox Series S will be limited to 1440p, the PS5 and Series X versions will run at up to 4K.

Players can prioritise frame rate or resolution, the former targeting 60 FPS.

The best part? Square Enix says that the new console's SSD storage will shrink the game's glacial loading times.

"The game utilizes the consoles’ built-in SSD for dramatically faster loading and streaming times and takes advantage of their graphics power and memory to deliver higher-resolution textures, farther draw distances for high-resolution models, improved heroics and armour destruction, and other enhancements that leverage the full might of these new consoles to make gamers truly feel like a Super Hero," a press release reads.

Other

The game's controversial new levelling system will be added as part of this update.

We'll update this as new info arrives, and Square Enix has also released a sizeable blog post.
