Listed below are the minimum and recommended system requirements to play FINAL FANTASY XIV on Windows® or Mac OS. Depending on your system’s resident software and hardware, it is possible that the game may not run optimally, even if your computer meets the minimum system requirements.
- Features of the Mac version
The Mac version of FINAL FANTASY XIV was developed as an application that would only run on the Mac OS. For the development of the Mac version, we utilize third party porting middleware. Unlike the Windows version, which runs in a DirectX environment, the Mac version runs under OpenGL. Due to limitations in the architecture of these environments, rendering characteristics of FINAL FANTASY XIV, key assignments, Japanese language IME settings, performance and interface may differ from that of the Windows version with similar specs. Your understanding in this matter is appreciated.
If the game is running on a Mac machine that does not meet the above system requirements, performance may be significantly lower than that of the Windows version of the game. When purchasing the game, please ensure that your machine meets the system requirements above.
* Please note that system requirements are subject to change.
* Available space on hard disk/SSD refers to the amount required to install both FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn and FINAL FANTASY XIV: Heavensward.
