After a wait of nearly 13 years, Final Fantasy 14 is finally making its way to Xbox. Director and producer Naoki Yoshida, along with Xbox boss Phil Spencer, made the exciting announcement at the Final Fantasy Fan Fest. Gamers can expect to immerse themselves in the visually stunning world of Final Fantasy 14 on the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S in spring 2024. But there’s more to look forward to, as an open beta is scheduled to begin during the patch 6.5 run later this year.
When Final Fantasy 14 launches on Xbox, players will be treated to a gaming experience like no other, with support for 4K resolution. The graphics promise to be truly breathtaking, allowing players to lose themselves in the intricate details of the game world. However, it’s important to note that the game will only be available for digital download. While this may disappoint some fans who prefer physical copies, the opportunity to play this highly anticipated MMO adventure on Xbox consoles has thrilled many.
A Long-Awaited Arrival
During the event, Yoshida and Spencer acknowledged the passionate requests they’ve received from fans to bring Final Fantasy 14 to Xbox. It seems that their voices have finally been heard, and the developers are responding with enthusiasm. Spencer expressed his excitement for future collaboration between Xbox and Square Enix, hinting at the possibility of more Final Fantasy titles making their way to Xbox. This includes the highly anticipated Final Fantasy 16, raising anticipation levels to an all-time high.
An Extended Free Trial
Alongside the Xbox announcement, Square Enix has some great news for potential Xbox players. They have decided to extend the free trial for Final Fantasy 14 to include the Stormblood expansion. This means that when patch 6.5 releases later this year, players will have the opportunity to explore the vast universe of Final Fantasy 14 without any time restrictions. The level cap will also be raised to 70, promising an even more thrilling gaming experience for players.
