Final Fantasy 15 PC Edition Arriving Early Next Year (VIDEO)
Remember when Square Enix revealed that the publisher was holding back some big Final Fantasy 15 announcements until Gamescom? Well, turns out our theories on what those announcements would be were a bit too DLC-heavy, as Nvidia announced today at Gamescom 2017 that a ‘Final Fantasy 15 PC edition is in the works, with its arrival listed as “early 2018”. The publisher took to the stage earlier today to show off the upcoming PC version of FFXV in a special reveal trailer, running on ultimate settings with 4K resolution. Check it out here:
NVIDIA’s announcement earlier today wasn’t exactly surprising. Square Enix has been on-and-off teasing a PC version of FFXV for some time now, even going so far as to showing off a GeForce GTX 1080Ti-powered build of the game at this year’s Game Developers Conference (GDC 2017). That said, the upcoming Final Fantasy 15 PC title will of course benefit from NVIDIA’s various GeForce features, including NVIDIA Flow, Hairworks, ShadowWorks, Turf Effects, and VXAO (voxel ambient occlusion). GeForce Experience is also coming along for the ride, featuring its ShadowPlay tools and NVIDIA Ansel’s screen-capture kits.
Neither Square Enix nor NVIDIA revealed whether fans can expect new material or exclusive DLC, though Steam’s website for ‘Final Fantasy XV Windows Edition’ reveals that those picking up the PC version of the game can expect all of the content currently available on consoles, including FFXV’s free updates and Season Pass DLC. FFXV‘s multiplayer mode “Comrades” is sure to be an even bigger hit on PC, as it will most likely be making use of the Steam client for many of the multiplayer features tested out during the beta last month.
