In a recent pre-release stream dedicated to Final Fantasy 16, the development team behind the game, Creative Business Unit III revealed that the highly anticipated game will indeed have a day one patch.
This revelation contradicts earlier statements made by the creators, who initially declared that there will be no day one patch for Final Fantasy 16. The developers firmly believed that the game was already a polished masterpiece, void of any necessary improvements. However, it seems that they have had a slight change of plans.
They assured players that this day one patch will solely consist of minor changes and will not be essential to enjoy the game. Therefore, if you’re eager to dive into Final Fantasy 16 right at its launch, fret not, as the patch won’t hinder your gaming experience according to the developers.
Although the patch itself hasn’t been released yet, an early set of patch notes has been unveiled during the stream. These notes provide a glimpse into some of the adjustments that players can expect:
- Fix a control flag issue which can make progress impossible under very specific circumstances.
- Fix an issue wherein the game could close unexpectedly under very specific circumstances.
- Optimize performance in several places.
- Fix some minor text errors.
While these changes may appear minor on paper, they are undoubtedly significant for ensuring a smoother and more enjoyable experience. Final Fantasy 16 will be released on June 22nd, 2023, for PlayStation 5.
The game’s demo, which was released earlier this week on the PlayStation Store, has impressed fans with its gameplay. Despite being only about 2 hours long, the demo allows players to try out the new protagonist and clearly demonstrates why Final Fantasy 16 has received a Mature rating.
As the release date approaches, anticipation and excitement for Final Fantasy 16 are at an all-time high. However, some individuals have already obtained the game ahead of its official release, resulting in a flood of spoilers.
Players are sharing pictures and gameplay footage online, prompting Square Enix to issue a spoiler warning.
