This past Saturday, the 18th installment in the Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn ‘Letter from the Producer LIVE’ series featured an in-depth discussion led by producer/director Naoki Yoshida on the recent Patch 2.4 release and the upcoming debut of Patch 2.45. According to Yoshida, Patch 2.45 is currently scheduled for a December 9th release.
In addition, Yoshida shared some new information about the DX11 renderer that is coming to Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. This new renderer is being prepared as we speak and as Square Enix noted, it will be available alongside the game’s upcoming expansion add-on.
Square Enix plans to show off a side-by-side comparison video of DirectX 9 and DirectX 11 at the Fan Festival in Tokyo. Moreover, the team is also preparing a benchmark that will – hopefully – go live before launch.
