■Regarding cancellation of distribution for the beta version of the Mac 64-bit application client
Previously, we announced that the a beta version of client for the 64-bit application would be distributed, but an inherent problem was discovered in the 64-bit version while the final adjustments to performance were being made, and we prioritized correcting this. We apologize, but due to this, the distribution of the beta version of the client will be canceled, and distribution of the official client will be prioritized instead.
We apologize to all those who were considering using the beta version of the client, but we ask that user wait for the distribution of the official client.
■Regarding the timing for the distribution of the official client for the Mac 64-bit version application.
The official client for the Mac 64-bit version application will be available for download before early access on Jun. 27, 2019. A webpage for downloading it will be opened on Jun. 27, 2019, so please download the client from there and follow the steps on the download page to install it.
We will announce the URL for the download page on the day that it opens.
Things to have prepared before distribution of the official client for the Mac 64-bit version of the application
▽Please make sure to have enough space on your hard disk.
The client for the Mac 64-bit version and the 32-bit version are different, so when starting up the client for the Mac 64-bit version for the first time, an update will take place based on the play licenses owned. Please have enough space on your hard disk for this installation that is separate from the 32-bit version.
As a point of reference, a client that has up to FINAL FANTASY XIV: Stormblood installed will use around 40 GB. Additionally, the update for FINAL FANTASY XIV: Shadowbringers is estimated to require a few GB as well.
*As of Jun. 27, 2019, FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn, FINAL FANTASY XIV: Heavensward, and FINAL FANTASY XIV: Stormblood will be available for download. FINAL FANTASY XIV: Shadowbringers will be available for download at the same time as the Windows® version.
▽ Please make a backup of configuration data beforehand.
Configurations for the Mac 32-bit version application will not automatically be transferred to the Mac 64-bit version application. Configurations will need to be transferred manually, so please make a backup using the server backup function beforehand.
Please refer to the “Using the Server Backup Function” guide below for how to use the Server Backup Function.
