The latest updates for "#Final Fantasy XV" will feature #PC mods for the sequel's PC version and a new gameplay video showcasing its 4K resolution at 60fps.

PC mods coming soon

Game director #Hajime Tabata teased the idea of PC mods in "Final Fantasy XV PC version." Tabata told that Engadget that he had no experience in developing PC games and explained that the "Final Fantasy" franchise has always been meant for console games. But he and his team have never done a game that was truly designed for the PC, and they want to challenge themselves by porting the sequel there and add more content not seen in the console versions.

"There are were limitations to the game to ensure it ran on consoles, but that's less of an issue with PCs - especially when it comes to modding," Tabata said.

PC modding has been a popular feature in PC based games, and it allows users the opportunity to create and build new content that is only limited by their own imagination and with "Final Fantasy XV" the possibilities are endless. This has been proven through several titles like "Grand Theft Auto 5," The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt," "Fallout 4," and "Elders Scrolls: Skyrim."

The problem, however, is that PC modders tend to be "too creative" with their content and ignore policies about adding explicit features or "nude" mods into the game. These types of content could damage the reputation of the game and its creators.

A new gameplay for the PC

Square Enix first announced "FFXV" for the PC at Gamescom 2017, and it has been considered to be the biggest announcement in the popular RPG franchise.

The PC version will include all of the free updates and paid DLC expansions from the console version.It will feature 4K resolution and HDR support that will capture the high quality of the graphics and texture within the game.

Square Enix used a new version of the Luminous Engine and technology from NVIDIA for "FFXV" to work properly on the platform without suffering too many errors.

To showcase the fruits of their labor, NVIDIA posted a new gameplay video for "FFXV" PC version running at 4K resolution at 60fps. Tabata stated that 60fps in the PC version are possible if they have the right equipment needed for the game. The game director pointed out that the GTX 1080 Ti was not able to run the sequel properly despite reaching max settings and 60fps.

Square Enix is planning to have more DLC stories for the game after Episode Ignis and Lunafreya Nox Fleuret will be the next character to get her own solo story episode. The game publisher will also put "FFXV: Pocket Edition" on the Nintendo Switch console.
