Yoshi-P promises that Final Fantasy 14’s anticipated graphics update in 7.0 will surpass the Dawntrail benchmark in visuals.



Square Enix has unveiled a graphical benchmarking tool for Final Fantasy 14’s upcoming expansion, Dawntrail, allowing users to explore its graphical update following a major overhaul of the decade-old game’s visuals. The visual changes have been met with mixed reviews, with criticism aimed at unconvincing eyes, odd facial features, and varying glossiness levels on character textures. Some players are also disappointed by elements of the game’s visual update.

The game’s producer-director, Naoki ‘Yoshi-P’ Yoshida, addressed these concerns, attributing them to outdated aspects of the game’s original character creation system due to a focus on developing Dawntrail and tuning the graphical update. However, he promised that Square Enix is working to adjust the problematic visual elements including eye highlights, lighting, and unique character-creation weather conditions affecting texture appearance.

Yoshida confirmed that these improvements would be reflected in the benchmark and the final game, and assured that missing high-res textures for certain characters and other problems relating to necklines and mouths would be resolved by the time Dawntrail is launched later this year.
