At this point, the better option seems to be Lite mode, where you'll at least get a more consistent frame rate with slightly worse graphics.

Final Fantasy XV just received patch 1.05, with the promise of offering up to 60fps on the PlayStation 4 Pro.

The press release for the update also lists the addition of two new songs from NieR: Automata to the in-game radio: "Inishie no Uta / Unmei" and "Weight of the World".

The Booster Pack Plus for "Final Fantasy 15" was supposed to include a Magitek Exosuit, an invincible outfit that will endow players an advantage during battles.

Director Tetsuya Nomura has revealed all-new screenshots of the Final Fantasy 7 remake at the Monaco Anime Game International Conferences 2017 event.

The Sixth Axis noted that the company doesn't want to develop a "boxed off version" of the game that limits interaction among players.

"In some ways, patch 1.05 actually feels like a retrograde step as opposed to a desirable upgrade", said Digital Foundry, which is no longer recommending the PS4 Pro as the hardware of choice for Final Fantasy 15. Those problems are present on a non-Pro PS4, but they're not as bad as in the Pro's High mode. Xbox One uses an adaptive v-sync solution that produces completely smooth frame-pacing throughout, leading to a stable experience. According to player reports, Square Enix released the update two days earlier in North America so other regions don't have access to it yet.

On the Nintendo Switch, Final Fantasy XIV players will be able to play the game while on the go, which is a huge plus for an MMORPG.
