Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers 5.0 Patch Notes Released

Two more days until Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers is finally available for those in early access, and anticipation couldn’t be higher. The MMORPG has seen its greatest number of subscribers ever, and rightfully so as the content continues to get better and better.

Tomorrow will mark its 24-hour maintenance, where MogStation, Lodestone and Final Fantasy XIV will be inaccessible. At the end of it, there will be sweeping changes to not only those who own Shadowbringers, but for those who have yet to catch up.

Square Enix has released their preliminary patch notes, showcasing a staggering number of changes and additions. This includes the stuff we’ve all heard about, such as UI changes and adjustments to skill/rotation, but also aspects we didn’t know about, such as limiting the framerate to 90fps (which an unfortunate choice for those like myself who own 144hz monitors), redoing how dialogue choices are made, a new disciple of hand and land delivery option, and new Gold Saucer rewards, just to name a few.

There are just far too many to list here in this article, so you best check them out yourself here.

Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers will be out July 2 for PC and PlayStation 4.
