Final Fantasy 14: Endwalker system requirements and benchmarking tool released

Audio player loading…

The fourth expansion for Final Fantasy 14 is months away, but if you want to know how well your rig will be able to handle Endwalker, Square Enix have published system requirements (opens in new tab) and a benchmarking tool you can download (opens in new tab).

It comes with a character creator so that if you'd rather not see the default paladin bro in the benchmark you can make your hero, and it includes the option to make a male viera character, since Endwalker will let you play one of the previously gender-locked rabbitfolk as a man. 

The benchmark cutscene also highlights some of the additions coming with Endwalker, like the scholarly island of Old Sharlayan, which will be the new hub, and two new jobs: the Sage, who functions as a barrier healer, and the scythe-wielding Reaper

According to Square Enix, "This benchmark uses updated scoring criteria to account for the increase in multiplayer content and provide a more accurate evaluation of how your computer will perform when running the latest version of the game." 

Here are the Endwalker system requirements.
