In anticipation of the release of the next expansion of Final Fantasy XIV, the minimum and recommended system requirements for PC have been published in preparation for Endwalker
The wait is about to end: starting next November 23 we will be able to get our hands on the latest expansion of ours MMORPG favorite, which promises to end the huge story arc that has now begun back in 2013 with A Realm Reborn. While we await that date, Square Enix did us the favor of revealing the system requirements for PC gamers of Final Fantasy XIV Endwalker, along with a free benchmark to get a better idea of how the game runs on your setup. Let’s see in detail what they are!
Final Fantasy XIV Endwalker: the requirements and the PC benchmark in detail
In the benchmark (of which you can watch the video trailer below) we explore various scenarios that will be introduced in the new expansion, including for example the new city Old Sharlayan, with several inhabitants wandering the streets. There are also battle scenes, in which fierce clashes take place and we meet many old acquaintances. The benchmark also provides a chance to try the character editor updated, so as to have a more precise idea of the appearance of the Evil Viera, the new race that will be introduced with the expansion.
Moving on to the requirements of the PC version of Final Fantasy XIV Endwalker, the minimum ones provide 2.4GHz Intel Core-i5, 4GB RAM and a Geforce GTX 750 or Radeon R7 260X as a video card, all in order to play at a resolution of 1280×720. If instead we pass to the recommended ones, the components to have are 3 GHz Intel Core-i7, 8 GB of RAM or higher, and a GeForce GTX 970 or Radeon RX 480 in order to play at a resolution of 1920×1080. In any case, you will need a secondary memory space of 80 GB, which we assume is for the full game and the expansion together, while nothing has been said about the weight of the expansion taken individually.
We remind you that Final Fantasy XIV Endwalker will be released for PS4, PS5 and PC on November 23rd, and record numbers of pre-orders have already been recorded (exceeding the 160-180% those of the last Shadowbringers expansion).
