Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn Will Support 4K Ultra HD Resolution

If you love Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn and you like to be always ahead of the visual curve, you now have a reason to celebrate, as Producer and Director Naoki Yoshida shared that support for 4K Ultra HD Resolution will be added to the game. (Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, PC, PS3, PS4)

4K Ultra HD ? That's got to be at least five generations ahead of my current equipment lol.

Not sure about five, but it was shown working on three Geforce GTX in SLI, not sure the model, but they were at least 680s

I was deliberatly exaggerating x)
I just checked the prices for 4K tvs or monitors on the itnernet. It's big ! No way I can afford that anytime soon.

@ShugaCane: you and me as well, but it's always good to futureproof a game.

I read this article that put into perspective how demanding 4k gaming is, and to run Sleeping Dogs at 60FPS you'll need 4, yes 4 Geforce Titans.

If you've ever run a game at 4x SSAA, that is fairly equivalent to 4k resolution. Not exactly, but similar.

There are quite a few games that I run with 4x SSAA so it's not too improbable.

That took like 10 more seconds than it would normally take to load images. I guess you are personally set for the next 3-4 generations if your monitor can do 4K?

On a side note, I find it ironic (can I use it in this term?) that there is a Dualshock silhouette, when I see you are using an Xbox 360 controller, and a lot of PC gamers use X360 controllers

my monitor isn't a 4K monitor

i created a custom resolution and it works with every game on my HDD

i think i'm set for the next-generation

I couldn't even see 1080p on Beta, what's up with that.
Feralkitsune  +   520d ago
Maybe it's because you aren't on a 4K monitor/TV. You could set a custom resolution but there would be 0 benefit from that.
listenkids  +   520d ago
My point really ( regardless of disagrees ) is that on beta, you couldn't go above 720p on any monitor/TV. So, how can they push 4k when 1080 isn't even an option.
Feralkitsune  +   519d ago
You must be on console. On PC, I could go to whatever I wanted. Played every beta on 1920x1200

I hope that the PS4 version will suppport 4k resolution as well/.

It wont

If FFXIV can support UHD, then there's no reason that FFXV can't.
CheexInk  +   520d ago
If it comes out on PC maybe. Allowing a person to play the game at that high resolution isn't a huge technical feat, it's just the requirements to play modern games at that resolution are utterly insane. The machine they are talking about in the article has three extremely high end video cards powering it.

I just want them to add sli support, any word on that? I just want to max out the game at 1440p and get at least a good 60 fps.
IaMs12  +   521d ago
Id personally rather them work on the logging in, and implement a log-out timer for those who go AFK. it would be nice to be able to play the game first haha
DivineAssault  +   520d ago
im not ready to invest in equipment that runs 4K resolution.. 1080p will do for the nx 5+ years for me
