Final Fantasy XVI Day One Patch Details Shared, Download Size and Pre-Load Confirmed
Square Enix has shared some details on the day one patch for Final Fantasy XVI. The download size and pre-load details have also been confirmed.
In a YouTube stream that was planned for the game’s launch in Japan, details around the day one patch were shared by the game’s producer, Naoki Yoshida.
While the developers initially shared that there won’t be a day one patch, they later revealed that after the feedback from the demo, they are planning to bring a day one patch. According to the announcement, Final Fantasy XVI day one update (1.001) will offer the following fixes as outlined in the patch notes.
Final Fantasy XVI 1.002 Patch Notes
- Fix a control flag issue which can make progress impossible under very specific circumstances.
- Fix an issue wherein the game could close unexpectedly under very specific circumstances
- Optimize performance in several places.
- Fix some minor text errors.
The download size of this update has been revealed to be 300 MB so it is a small patch. If you are looking to pre-order the game, you can learn more about the date of the pre-load including the required file size.
While the game is not out until June 22, some of the retail stores have already started to sell copies which means some users have early access to the game. The review embargo for the game is also set sometime before launch.
If you are curious about the download size, it has been confirmed to be around 90 GB and since the day one patch is small, this is not expected to change much. If you pre-order the game, you will be able to play it as the day one patch might already be downloaded with the pre-load.
Final Fantasy XVI will be released on June 22 for the PS5. It is being developed by Creative Business Unit 3 and published by Square Enix.
