Final Fantasy XVI PS5 Console Exclusive Six Months Sony

Final Fantasy XVI Day-One Patch Detailed

Square Enix originally didn’t want to release a day-one patch for Final Fantasy XVI. Previously, the publisher and its developer Creative Business Unit III expressed confidence in the game’s launch state saying it didn’t need any sort of update. However, that has since changed. This is likely due to the feedback from fans regarding the game’s demo performance.

According to Square Enix, when players launch Final Fantasy XVI this week, a patch of about 300MB will be available to download. This day-one patch includes minor performance tweaks and some progression bugs which Square Enix claims are “very specific”.
