FFXIV Character Creation Benchmark Available

August 1st, 2013 by Tony Garsow

Today, Square Enix is releasing the new Character Creation benchmark for Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, where you can play around with the various character options to get a feel of what character you’ll play in the full version. This benchmark features HD display support, 5.1 channel surround sound audio, and multilingual language support (Japanese, English, French and German). The Exploration benchmark can also be used to test your PC’s capabilities of running the game and help you decide if you need an upgrade.

Download the Character Creator (PC) benchmark by clicking here. Our friends in Europe — follow the link here.

Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn launches August 27th on Windows PC and PlayStation 3, while a PlayStation 4 version is in the works for next year.

Show us the characters you create in the benchmark — email me a picture of your character (tgarsow@finalfantasy.net) and we’ll feature them in this post! Be sure to include “FFXIV Character” in the subject line! Happy character creating!

    Okay so I REALLY want to try this benchmark and I have tried so many things that to make it work but it still won’t!! The launch screen works just fine but when I click to play the cutscene or hit the character creation button the screen comes up black and it says “DirectX fatal error has occured (100000000)” Does anyone have any ideas?? =/

    After you’ve made your character, does the benchmark play a real-time video using the character you created? That would be cool and make it worth downloading.

    Yeah! It does :)

    Thanks for the info! Man, that’s awesome! I will start downloading this right now! :)
