Final Fantasy XV Windows Edition announced

Share

Final Fantasy XV is coming to PC in early 2018, over a year after the critically acclaimed game was released on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Final Fantasy XV will soon be available to PC players with a Windows Edition releasing in early 2018.

Thus, the PC version of Final Fantasy XV will feature 4K resolution textures and Dolby Atmos support. It can easily be considered the "ultimate" version of the game, since it comes packed with all of the extra content.

Given that recent FInal Fantasy news has largely revolved around a person spending $32,000 to (badly) look like a character in the series, this announcement makes a nice change.

EPS for Barnes & Noble Education Inc (BNED) Expected At $
Zurcher Kantonalbank Zurich Cantonalbank raised its position in shares of Barnes & Noble Education by 316.8% in the first quarter. Louisiana State Employees Retirement System increased its position in shares of Barnes & Noble by 1.4% in the first quarter.

Previously Final Fantasy XV director Hajime Tabata explained that a PC version would take longer to hit than the console versions.

Tabata explains that this version of the game is created with a new version of the Luminous game engine and it will also use some Nvidia tech as well. As can be seen in the trailer, Flow provides vivid fire and smoke effects. For that reason, it was puzzling why Final Fantasy XV was not originally announced for PC, and why the company didn't want to discuss a potential port. The Windows Edition will come loaded with bonus content, including content that was added in the console versions as well as all paid DLC through the Season Pass. The title is coming to Steam instead of the Windows Store so this might not be the case but it does seem a little interesting that Square Enix chose to give the PC port a different name.

Nvidia have also confirmed that Shadowplay Highlights will integrate nicely with FFXV, allowing you to automatically record gameplay.
