Have you noticed the performance issues in the Final Fantasy 16 PlayStation 5 demo? While not excessively affecting the gaming experience, they are certainly evident, especially in crowded areas and in hectic sections, where sharp drops up to 40fps are reported.
The gamers most sensitive to these issues are understandably alarmed, but Naoki Yoshida himself took care of reassuring them. During a Japanese broadcast called “Demo Feedback”, the manufacturer has confirmed that the framerate will be improved in the full gamespecifically citing the declines occur in densely populated areas, such as the castle.
The improvements will already be noticeable at the launch on Thursday 22 June, since Final Fantasy 16 will be accompanied by a day-one patch of about 300 MB, which, in addition to improving the framerate, will also add options for change the camera speed, adjust the intensity of motion blur (even disabling it) e remap quick keys, buttons and functions. From the words spoken by the manufacturer in recent months, we all expected a launch without a day-one patch, but given and considered the needs that have arisen, Business Unit III could not do otherwise. In light of the small size of the update and the significant improvements it brings, we are sure that fans of the game will be inclined to forgive the good Yoshi-P for not keeping his promise.
