Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward Benchmark Released

Posted on April 28, 2015 by Rae Michelle Richards

An official benchmark for Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward has been released by Square Enix. As we outlined last week this new benchmark brings players to the snowy land of Coerthas, the setting for the upcoming expansion for Square’s newest MMO.

New features available only in this benchmark include our first peek at the Direct X 11 client, the ability to select the Au Ra race in the character creator and of course while the benchmark is running we are able to get a really good look at some of the new jobs in action.

No minimum specs were posted to the FFXIV: Heavensward benchmark official site, so presumably they are very similar to the original FFXIV: A Realm Reborn minimum specs. The benchmark software clocks in at about 1.6GB so it is a pretty hefty download. You can grab it here – and when you’re done running it make sure to post your scores in the comments section!Read More
