The over-the-top insane video game about fantastic hair and bromance, “Final Fantasy XV,” is coming to a new platform in early 2018: Windows PC. Recently announced by publisher Square Enix, the PC version of the open-world role-playing game will include all the content available in the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles’ season pass, as well as additional single-player campaigns featuring the cast’s supporting characters.

FFXV on PC: a long time coming

March of last year, game director Hajime Tabata revealed the possibility of a PC port of their then console exclusive “Final Fantasy 15.” The game director acknowledged it would take a minimum of 13 months for his masterpiece to arrive on desktops, if it were to arrive at all.

PC owners have been looking forward to the port to arrive and now that it’s finally here, they are set to enjoy 4K and HDR displays (along with new high-resolution textures), and Dolby Atmos, which allows for more accurate placement of sound effects above and behind the listener with an appropriate setup.

This version, which Square Enix is calling “Final Fantasy XV: Windows Edition,” will allow players to screenshot 360-degree high-resolution images throughout the game (up to 63360 x 35640), and also play in the first-person perspective. It will run on the NVIDIA Gameswork tech suite to optimize experience for PC, so expect a much higher quality graphical experience with the Windows port.

Supported graphical features and more

FFXV: Windows Edition” will include NVIDIA’s VXAO, Turf Effects, ShadowWorks, HairWords, and Flow to create optimum real-time graphics and physical simulations. Supporting 4K native as well as 8K resolution means the game isn't going to be small. GearNuke reports that the recommended spec for the game lists available hard drive size as 170GB.

So for those thinking of an SSD upgrade, flick the 256GB aside and go for a 512gb drive instead.

Final Fantasy XV” sold five million copies in two days, with Square Enix revealing that the game actually broke even with dev costs on day one. It already has a page on Steam, but the price and full PC specs haven't been revealed yet.

There's no specific date, but the San Francisco Game Developers Conference (GDC) in March 2018 seems a promising time frame. During NVIDIA's press conference, Tabata said the Windows Edition would be the highest quality version of the game yet, and it shows in the video below.
