Yoshida Details Final Fantasy XIV PS4/Vita

September 6th, 2013 by Tony Garsow

At this year’s E3 in Los Angeles, we learned that Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn will be making it’s way to Sony’s next-generation console: the PlayStation 4. Today, in a new epsiode of the company’s many-part “Conversations with Creators” series — director/producer Naoki Yoshida is a bat and talks at length about the upcoming PlayStation 4 version.

For players currently playing on the PlayStation 3, the upgrade to PlayStation 4 is drastic. Not only will the game feature better graphics all around on nex-generation hardware, but it will be able to render up to 200 players in your vicinity. With the large amount of memory that the PlayStation 4 provides, as well as the character data that is passed from server to player, this is possible. The special touchpad on the DualShock 4 will allow players a point-and-click feature. Using the PlayStation 4’s video sharing capabilities, you’ll be able to quickly share videos of important moments such as your favorite cutscenes your your narrow victories.

If you own a PlayStation Vita, you’re in luck, as Yoshida confirms that Remote Play will be possible between PlayStation 4 and the handheld, allowing you to take the MMO off the HD screen and into your hands. Eorzea Libra, a companion app scheduled to roll out very soon for iOS (and within a month on Android) will also be available for PlayStation Vita users.

In closing, Yoshida described that his favorite parts of the PlayStation 4 were its large pool of memory (which allows more breathing room when creating high quality assets) and the Remote Play connectivity with PlayStation Vita.

Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn will be available on PlayStation 4 next year, presumably after DirectX 11’s release. The game is now currently available on PlayStation 3 and Windows PC.

    @masterlobo – DirectX 11 has been out for a bit, yes. However, the current build of FFXIV doesn’t use it. That version’s coming next year.

    Nice! Does that mean the game will look even more beautiful? :O
