It has an intro, title screen, and then a post-benchmark fanfare and character celebration screen. All of this whilst giving players the chance to test their PC rigs ahead of the Final Fantasy XIV: Endwalker expansion launch on November 23, 2021. And yeah this doubles as an Endwalker sneak peak as it features in-game areas and character models from the upcoming expansion.
It’s a standalone app that has a 6-minute or so run-time and plenty of options to tweak and change graphics settings. If you’re wondering what it looks and sounds like, here a video.
It also comes equipped with an updated character creator tool, including the new playable race coming – male Viera. So you can spend time tinkering with a new toon and save that data for use when the expansion drops.
