Final Fantasy XVI was one of the highlights of this weekend’s PAX East 2023, as the developers got to see more of the fantastical world of Valisthea before answering some of the community’s teasing questions (as well as showing off more gameplay).
We’ve gotten some welcome tech specs, with producer Naoki Yoshida revealing that Final Fantasy XVI will feature two of the performance modes we’ve come to expect from current-gen games. One will have improved graphics, with 4K displays at 2160p and a target of 30fps, while the other will prioritize frame rate, targeting 60fps at 1440p. Both benefit from instant load times, as it takes less than three seconds to load a save file during gameplay, which was interesting from last week’s Briefing interval talk.
Some of the epic boss encounters are split into multiple stages, with QTEs seemingly recurring as the boss and environment change at each stage transition. Three different types of triggers (attack, escape and grapple) are required depending on the situation where the developers want to make each transition more “efficient”.
Final Fantasy XVI launches on PS5 on June 22, and we’re sure to learn more as the date draws closer. Where are your volume levels? Let us know in the comments section below.
