While it’s a bummer when a PC release of a huge game comes long after its console launch, it looks like Square Enix are working hard to make the wait for Final Fantasy XV on PC worthwhile.
While you wait for Final Fantasy XV, keep busy with our list of the 15 best RPGs on PC.
First, the Windows Edition is going to be open to modding, which is a pretty massive step for the Final Fantasy series. Square Enix showed this feature off at the PC Gamer Weekender with this clip, in which all of Final Fantasy XV’s civilians have been replaced with cactuars (!!!)
The possibilities for modding such a gigantic, complex game are, frankly, mind-bending. But if modding isn’t really your bag, Square Enix have also been hard at work pushing the game well beyond what's possible on current-gen consoles. This new trailer shows off the Windows Edition, in all its 4K glory.
The trailer highlights some of the features introduced into Final Fantasy XV for high-spec PC players. Running at “ultimate quality,” this includes 4K textures and implementation of a bunch of Nvidia’s latest tech, like TurfEffects, HairWorks, and their latest ambient occlusion technique, VXAO.
There’s also a new trailer for the game’s Comrades multiplayer expansion, which will arrive alongside Final Fantasy XV’s Windows launch with an update to version 1.2.0.
