Square Enix has revealed the official benchmark that will be launched to accompany the release of Final Fantasy XIV’s new Endwalker expansion.
As usual, the benchmark features several scenes designed to test your PC and tell you if it will be able to run Endwalker.
The benchmark will be available tomorrow, July 11, 2021, at 00:00 PDT or 08:00 BST depending on where you live.
As usual, it will include the full character creator, which means you will be able to create your first male vieras. The character you create (or your old one, which you can from the current game) will appear in the benchmark cutscene but, of course, you won’t be able to use male vieras in the live game until the expansion launches.
You can check it out in action below.
Incidentally, the new expansion for Final Fantasy XIV Endwalker will be released on November 23, 2021 for PS5, PS4 and PC.
If you want to know more about it, you can check out the reveal of the extended trailer and the work of the reaper, as well as the male viera, locations, and release date.
You can also check out plenty of official screenshots and artwork, the original announcement, tons of initial details, and the first official screenshots and artwork.
If you’re not familiar with Final Fantasy XIV, it’s currently available for PlayStation 4, PS5, and PC. Upgrading to PS5 is free for those who own the PS4 version.
