The glut of great multi-platform releases looks set to continue well into next year. The PC version of magical realist road-trip RPG Final Fantasy XV is gearing up properly for release now, and has seen its official system requirements announced via Microsoft's Windows store.

For those without heavyweight machines, have no fear. While the port looks designed to push even the most absurdly expensive machines to their limits if you want to turn everything to max at 4k, the minimum and recommended specs seem quite reasonable.

FFXV on PC is going to be launching with co-op from the start. Get your crew ready in these great team games.


  • Windows 10 w/ DirectX 11
  • 8GB RAM
  • Intel Core i5-2400 (3.15ghz) or AMD FX-6100 (3.3ghz) CPU
  • Geforce GTX760 or equivalent GPU


  • Windows 10 w/ DirectX 11
  • 16GB RAM
  • Intel Core i7-3770 (3.4ghz) or AMD FX-8350 (4.0ghz) CPU
  • Nvidia GTX 1060 or equivalent GPU

As with so many major multi-platform releases, the recommended system is a comfortably mid-range system built around a Geforce 1060, which has quickly become the standard card to have if you want close to maximum detail in most games at 1080p and aim to hit 60fps most of the time.

If nothing else, it makes building a new gaming-oriented PC a lot cheaper and easier than it used to be.

Having only played a little bit of the PS4 version, and liking what I played at the time, I'm eager to get my hands on the PC edition, especially considering that it'll already have all the DLC chapters, co-op mode and multitude of updates fully integrated. Plus, Square-Enix have plans to support and expand the game well into next year.

Final Fantasy XV: Windows Edition is due for release in early 2018, although no precise date has been set. You can wishlist or follow the game on Steam to keep up with its release.

Probably more than 80 GB if I had to guess
