Final Fantasy XVI Update Adds Motion Blur Slider and New Control Schemes

A new Final Fantasy XVI update is now available on PS5 that adds a couple of highly requested features. The 1.000.003 update contains improvements that include a few new control schemes as well as a motion blur slider, addressing some of the criticisms aimed at the game at launch that didn’t feature options to tweak motion blur.

Update 1.000.003 for Final Fantasy XVI comes in at a small 267.1 MB but the changes are welcomed. When tapping into the menu, players will be given three extra control schemes. These control schemes (types D, E and F) swap around the triggers, shoulder buttons and some of the face buttons to your preference. Unfortunately, there’s still no option to configure and map each button individually, though we can probably expect that in a later update.

In addition to the control schemes, Final Fantasy XVI‘s latest update also introduces a motion blur slider in the menu, which can be dialed down or turned off completely in the game’s graphics settings. Players will also be able to toggle if the camera will zoom behind Clive when attacking, dodging or moving. The overall camera sensitivity can now be tweaked up to 20 (the previous option only allowed up to 10).

Here’s the full 1.000.003 update patch notes:

  • Adds the following items to the System tab of the Main Menu:
    • Motion Blur Strength
      • Allows the player to adjust the strength of the motion blur effect when the character or camera is in motion. The default setting is the maximum of 5. This can be lowered to reduce the strength of the motion blur effect, or set to 0 to turn it off completely.
    • Player Follow (Movement)
    • Player Follow (Attack)
      • Turning these settings off prevents the camera from automatically following the player while moving and attacking respectively.
  • Changes the maximum setting of the Camera Sensitivity (Horizontal) and Camera Sensitivity (Vertical) items from 10 to 20.
  • Adds three new controller layouts: types D, E, and F.
  • Corrects an issue that affected the stability of some menus.
  • Corrects some text issues.
  • Adds the hashtag #FF16 when sharing screenshots or video clips on Twitter
