Free Final Fantasy XV Update Adds PS4 Pro “Stable Mode” and More Coming Soon
A free update for Final Fantasy XV is set to arrive next week on April 27th. Square Enix’s latest flagship RPG is introducing additional features for PlayStation 4 Pro users, including a new “Stable Mode” that can be found within the game’s resolution options. Back in February, a Final Fantasy XV update was implemented to add support for the PS4 Pro. However, it reportedly made the game perform worse at certain times. This new “Stable Mode”, though two months late, should help fix the issues PS4 Pro players were having.
Alongside the new “Stable Mode”, the free update is also introducing the ability to magnify the subtitles and menu screen size within the game. The quality of life feature is certainly a nice one to have, as previously it could be difficult to read things from certain menus in the game. The image below shows some of the new magnification options within one of the menus.
The update is also bringing timed quests back to the game, this time with a ranking system. According to Nova Crystallis “extravagant weapons can be obtained from them.” It is also adding in a new sticker for Noctis’ car, the Regalia, along with new music for the music player. A recent patch to the game allows Noctis and company to listen to music outside the regalia, so the new music will be playable from most areas within the game.
Final Fantasy XV is currently available for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Episode Gladiolus, the game’s first story-based DLC, arrived on March 28. The next story-based DLC, titled “Episode Prompto”, is slated for release this summer.
