What is Final Fantasy XIV update 7.0 bringing with it?

One of the biggest changes coming in 7.0 is a level cap increase. As of Endwalker‘s release in December 2021, the level cap has been set at 90—Final Fantasy XIV 7.0 boosts this to 100.

Another notable change is a graphical overhaul. Significant tweaks to lighting and textures are on the way, breathing new life into character models, locations, dungeons, and more. This does mean that the FFXIV system requirements are changing slightly.

  • Tural, The New World continent.
