The goal of a stress test in an MMORPG like FFXIV is to make sure it can handle a certain number of concurrent players at once. A company will ask for as many people as possible to head to a certain server or world, to check and see if it can handle the load. In particular, Square Enix said the goal of this test will look at the Duty Finder and stability. It also noted Director and Producer Naoki Yoshida will appear on YouTube and Twitch during the test.

Square Enix’s update also mentioned that there won’t be a similar test held for any of the North American or European Data Centers. In the announcement, it said that would be unnecessary. As a reminder, the game experienced quite a bit of demand since the FFXIV Digital Fan Fest 2021, to the point that the Complete Edition sold out on multiple platforms for a time.

Final Fantasy XIV is available for the PS4, PS5, and PC. The Endwalker expansion will appear on November 23, 2021. The Mana Data Center FFXIV stress test will be held August 27, 2021.
