CGMagazine's impression of Immerse Gamepack Final Fantasy XIV Edition’s Version 2

The Immerse Gamepack FFXIV Edition, official audio-enhancement tool for the popular MMORPG, has released a new version alongside patch 6.4.

"The Immerse Gamepack is an official add-on for Final Fantasy XIV, developed by Embody in conjunction with Square Enix’s Creative Business Unit 3, the MMORPG’s developers (and also the team behind the hotly-anticipated Final Fantasy XVI). This tool adds fully integrated 360-degree Spatial Audio to the PC version for enhanced clarity, separating the sources of certain sound effects. 

Today’s Version 2.0 Update improves upon the existing foundation. The Immerse Gamepack’s Environmental Sound Library has been updated to make environmental sounds clearer for better overall ambience. Its Personalized HRTF AI Algorithm—short for Head Related Transfer Function, the way our ears receive sounds—has been updated for better height perception, smoother sound transitions, and overall sound quality. Since HRTF is affected by the shape of an individual’s ear (and even other aspects of their physical build), the setup process has been revamped to better measure and apply your personal settings. Lastly, users now have the ability to transfer their registration to other devices as needed."
