Final Fantasy XVI Intense Boss Fights Reportedly Causing PS5 Consoles To Overheat
Some of the boss fights in Square Enix’s upcoming action role-playing game, Final Fantasy XVI, are reportedly causing PS5 consoles to overheat.
People with early access to copies of Final Fantasy XVI as well as those who have played the recently released demo have been reporting that the game tends to overheat their PS5 console during certain boss fights.
Twitter user TheSphereHunter stated that she has been playing a certain PS5 game that hasn’t yet been released, where a boss fight made her console overheat to the point where it just turned off completely at the end of the fight. Meanwhile, some members of gaming enthusiast forum, Reset Era, have also been having overheating issues with the game’s recently released playable demo on PS5. One member mentioned that he was fighting the Morbol boss when his PS5 showed a message stating that the console needed to be turned off in order to cool down.
Regardless of whether this is a common problem with those playing the game or its demo, it’s always a good idea to keep your console’s vents, fan and heat sink clean from potential dust that may accumulate over time.
