Square Enix has finally confirmed the PC version of “Final Fantasy 15.” The PC version will also include the market-leading Nvidia GameWorks enhancements along with all the free updates and paid content that was released on the PS4 and Xbox One console versions.

According to GameRant, Square Enix has finally confirmed the release date for the PC version of the game. The game will arrive on PC market on early 2018. It will be called “Final Fantasy XV: Windows Edition.”

A quick look at Final Fantasy 15 and the PC version development

Square Enix started development of the game in 2006.

It was released to the gaming market in November 2016, but this was on PS4 and Xbox One gaming consoles only. Square Enix executive Hajime Tabata headed the game development, expanding the story without developing additional games.

In “Final Fantasy 15,” players take control of the main character Noctis during his journey to the world of Eos. Noctis is also the only character in the open-world action game that is directly controlled by the users. Players can perform simple actions, jump over small obstacles, perform context-based actions such as taking cover behind object and sprint for a limited time.

This open world action game uses a real-time battle system, which the developer called the Active Cross Battle system.

Here, battles take place within the current gaming environment rather than moving to a separate area. This could range from open plains to enclosed building structures. Players can perform three actions in battle. These are the Warp, Defend and Wait Mode.

As mentioned earlier by GameRant, the PC version of the game will also include support for 4K and HDR displays.

The PC version has already described by Square Enix’s Hajime Tabata as “the most beautiful and highest quality version” of the game. Tabata also explained that PC version of the game has been created using a new version of the Luminous game engine, giving the game more realistic look.

The best thing about the PC version is that it includes all the DLC updates previously released on gaming consoles (PS4 and Xbox One).

There are also some big additions such as some PC-exclusive graphical enhancements.

The game developer has also added some Nvidia GameWorks enhancements in its development. These include the Turf Effects (for more realistic grass), Nvidia Flow (for smoke and fire effects), Hairworks (for more realistic hair), Nvidia XVAO Ambient Occlusion, and Nvidia HFTS shadow algorithms. Nvidia GameWorks is a middleware software suite that provides industry-leading solutions for real-time simulation and rendering

The game will be made available on Origin, Steam and Windows Store in early 2018. However, price and system requirement have yet to be announced, so expect even more details in the coming days.
