Final Fantasy XIV update goes live

Lengthy patch process gets underway.

The first in a series of patches for Final Fantasy XIV has gone live, publisher Square Enix has announced.

The update makes a huge arrange of improvements to the much-maligned MMO, including tweaked skill points allocation, improved UI response time and a more accessible user interface. Have a look at the official website for full details.

Square's MMO came in for some heavy criticism upon release in September with the publisher having to extend the free month-long trial period while it worked on fixes for bugs and faulty gameplay.

Square Enix VP of software development Hiromichi Tanaka told Eurogamer earlier this month, "the development team is working really hard to bring it back to the level we planned to have ready for the players."

This patch is the first fruits of that labour but a wide-ranging series of updates are planned for December and January too.
