Final Fantasy XIV Dawntrail benchmark available April 14, trailer released

The benchmark for Final Fantasy XIV Dawntrail will arrive on Sunday, April 14th at midnight Pacific time. This application will allow PC players to test their current specs performance ahead of the fifth expansion’s launch on July 2, 2024.

This comes ahead of a massive graphics update that the team highlighted during the latest Letter from the Producer Live broadcast which provided more in-game footage of how the game’s areas and models would look following Patch 7.0.

The update has also led to the team increasing the minimum requirements for the game, with a recent revision to the CPU to account for models that are being phased out.

The benchmark will include the contents of the trailer below, but will also let players create their own female hrothgar character, who will be added once the Dawntrail expansion hits.

Final Fantasy XIV is now available on Windows PC, Steam, PS4, PS5, Xbox Series S|X, and Mac.
