Final Fantasy 14 Keeps Iconic Low-Poly Grapes Despite Upgrade

Jul 03, 2024 3:47 PM

Final Fantasy 14's latest expansion, Dawntrail, brought a significant graphical upgrade to this popular MMORPG. While many elements received a visual refresh, the game's infamous low-poly grapes, introduced in the Endwalker expansion, remained virtually unchanged, maintaining their cuboid, meme-worthy appearance. This deliberate choice by developer Square Enix continues a beloved joke within the community. Dawntrail, released on July 2, 2024, also introduced new areas, quests, quality-of-life improvements, and new jobs like the Viper and Pictomancer. Despite some bugs, including a significant Xbox issue, the expansion continues to enhance the game.

Final Fantasy 14, often referred to as FFXIV, is a critically acclaimed MMORPG developed by Square Enix. The game originally launched in 2010 but underwent a significant revamp in 2013 with the release of Final Fantasy 14: A Realm Reborn. Since then, it has seen multiple expansions, including Heavensward, Stormblood, Shadowbringers, and Endwalker, continually evolving with substantial content updates and improvements that keep the community engaged and excited.
