Today Square Enix released a new benchmark tool for Final Fantasy XIV‘s upcoming expansion Stormblood.

The benchmark, that can be downloaded here exclusively for PC, offers a look on how your PC will handle the expansion ahead of release.

It’s also a good chance to see Stormblood‘s beautiful environments running directly on your PC, which is pretty nice.

Those who don’t have access to the benchmark (which probably includes those playing on PS4) should not panic, as they’re still getting to see the lovely footage. Square Enix released a trailer showing exactly the same sequence that the benchmark does, and you can check it out below.

In case you missed it, check out our interview with Producer and Director Naoki Yoshida, telling us all things Stormblood, and a large batch of recent screenshots and info.

Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood will release on June 20th exclusively for PC and PS4, with the PS3 version of the game getting discontinued. PS3 users are eligible to a free upgrade to the PS4 version, and you can find out how to get it here.
