Final Fantasy XIV on PS5 brought a PC improvement I’ve been waiting for | TechRadar

Final Fantasy XIV finally made its way to PS5 today, bringing speedy load times and gorgeous 4K graphics to the MMORPG. But, I play on PC, which means I have been getting those features for a very long time. However with Patch 5.5 – or “Death Unto Dawn” if you want to use the cool name – the PS5 version has allowed for 4K UI assets to finally be included in the game. 

Now, according to the latest Steam Hardware Survey, only like 2.4% of PC gamers are even using a 4K gaming monitor, so this is a pretty niche complaint right off the bat – but the FFXIV UI has never looked great on a 4K panel. With the new patch, though, it finally does. 

That means that text no longer looks pixelated, and all the rounded corners that are ubiquitous in Final Fantasy XIV’s UI are nice and smooth. The low-res UI has never been enough to get me to stop playing Final Fantasy XIV for literally a minute, but I love how crisp everything looks now.
