The PS4 version of FF14 will be playable on PS5 with PS4 Pro display settings and quicker load times, details a post by Square Enix on the upcoming 5.4 Patch.
From the latest Letter from the Producer LIVE broadcast for FF14, producer and director Naoki Yoshida revealed Patch 5.4, entitled “Futures Rewritten,” and stated it will be released in early December 2020.
The patch is said to bring new Main Scenario Quests that will follow the grand conclusion of the Shadowbringers story and will add a new Raid dungeon – Eden’s Promise – which is the third chapter in the 8-player Eden raid series.
Also arriving with the Patch is the new Chronicles of a New Era – The Sorrow of Werlyt update that will introduce the Emerald Weapon into FF14. There will also be a new dungeon and Unreal Trial, and the Blue Mage is getting a new update that increases its level cap and more.
A new Explorer Mode will allows players to traverse Shadowbringers dungeons without the danger of enemies in order to take screenshots. Mounts and minions can also be summoned to help create the perfect shot.
Prior to Patch 5.4, Patch 5.35 will be released on October 13 and will feature the latest chapter in the “Save the Queen” questline, with a story written by Final Fantasy Tactics and Final Fantasy XII’s Yasumi Matsuno, and new Bozjan Southern Front battle content will also be added.
