Final Fantasy XV Windows Edition Release Date, Final System Specs Detailed

The ultimate version of the fifteenth Final Fantasy (how many fantasies can really be final, eh?) has been outed, and now PC gamers now when they can expect to go around the most perfect iteration of the Final Fantasy XV game world. The latest, greatest, and heavily graphically-revised Final Fantasy will finally hit the PC platform on March 6.

The PC version of Final Fantasy XV, will include all previously released DLCs (Episodes Gladiolus, Prompto and Ignis as well as multiplayer), extra bosses, a new dungeon, an in-game vehicle and a first-person mode (this is the one I really have to see). As previously covered, the new PC version has been developed with heavy input from NVIDIA, offers up to 8K resolution in HDR, and includes many NVIDIA GameWorks technologies, such as NVIDIA Flow, NVIDIA HairWorks, NVIDIA Hybrid Frustum Traced Shadows, NVIDIA Turf Effects, NVIDIA Voxel Ambient Occlusion, and more. With all of that NVIDIA technology being built-in, it's somewhat expected that the game will only run the way the developers envisioned on a green team graphics card. Read on after the break for the latest system specs and the Royal Edition release trailer (a special version that's equivalent to the Game of the Year versions of other video-games, with all the released DLC for console players.)

Been playing since 1999. :toast:


What I've heard, this isn't that good, but I guess I still need to have this in my Steam collection, since I have 13 FF titles already.

You missed out. Some are great games in my opinion. FF7 was huge and one of the first games I remember seeing heavy advertising for on regular TV, I think it worked because I remember a lot of kids talking about it and they didn't even know what an RPG was. I learned how to read because of FF on NES, I was 3 years old and mad I couldn't make it through the game because I didn't know how to read, I still don't.

FF XIII seems to use 58GB, so that would be indeed an interesting thing. :D

Holy smokes, that's a lot of memory. Of course if you're going to play in 4k it's going to suck up a lot of space.

So they can list an archaic AMD FX-8350 in the recommended settings, but no RX480 there because nVidia?

Even Gameworks titles usually have an AMD equivalent listed on the recommended specs.
This takes it one step further as an nVidia Shrill game, basically nVidia does the port for them.

You wont be missing out, I have it on PS4 Pro and basically the worst purchase I have done in recent years.
The first 1/4 of the game was nice, but the rest is basically unfinished.

Typically for FF games, most of the storage are for uncompressed voice/music. You will notice the difference if you don't skim on your sound set up.

Since '88 for me (the original). I started to see the cliff for the franchise after the 3 main players (Sakaguchi, Amano, and Uematsu) got out of the way of main direction for the series around 2004-ish +/- a couple years. Well, except Uematsu. He still makes great music for the FF series but he is more of a mentor at-this-point. He's doing his own thing with all these concerts and one-off grandiose pieces. Sakaguchi founded Mistwalker Corporation and Amano started Studio Devaloka.

Still remember having to save up lunch money ($5 a week is what I got), cutting lawns ($5 to $10), and doing home repair service calls with my father (helping him, he gave me $5) to buy Final Fantasy III (now called Final Fantasy VI) during 7th grade year and part of that summer of '94. It was 1994, Sears was still relevant, and they wanted $80+tax for that Super Nintendo game. It was all worth it! :P

I might pick this up just because I don't have to worry about $5 or $10 jobs now, lol. I make enough and if I don't like it, then I can always move on. Shoot, some people spend more on a dinner than some people earn in a week or two. I'd say $50 to $80 (or whatever it will sell for) is probably worth a shot.

Buuuuuuuut, I'm getting off topic. Nostalgia can be a powerful distraction.

Holy sh*t, 160GB just for a game? I'd need a new SSD if I were to buy this game.

This one is very likely to be shipped with Denuvo 4.7 DRM similar to the soon to be released FF XII TZA for PC. I was planning to get both of these FF games as I'm a fan of the series, but this whole Denuvo thing really puts me off.

If you enjoy medieval fantasy, then you are missing out.

Story-wise, my favorites were VI and by VII. VI aged better than VII for graphics, but I'm pretty sure they are currently working on a remake for VII due to how it aged and it being the collective favorite of the series.

I haven't played all of them and only play the single player titles when I do.

Heh. Born in '90 and since I live in Europe, VII was the first which we got (after those more or less shitty spin-offs). Got VII as a birthday present when I turned 9 (had tried VII a little before that), but it was truly love at first sight. :love:

edit: Completed I, II, III, IV, V, VI, VII, VIII, IX, X, X-2, XIII and XIII-2.

Old FF games are totally different. After X they took a new direction, though I still like X-2 and XIII. After X, Squaresoft and Enix had a fusion.
