Final Fantasy XV is coming to PC.
Square Enix’s biggest surprise announcements this week at Gamescom. But fans have grown concerned about the fact that the title might require 170 GB of free space, the press release for the game’s PC edition to be rumored.
It won’t be that large, as game director Hajime Tabata confirmed in an interview with Kotaku that the mention of 170 GB was a “mistake”, thankfully.
“That was a mistake, actually,” Tabata said. “That was a communications mistake– something got put in a memo that really shouldn’t have. What that is [the specifications that went out to press] based on the specs that we’re running the demo on today.”
The final specs for Final Fantasy XV on PC have not yet been finalised, it seems. In the time between now and launch in early 2018, there is a “very good chance” that the specs will change, Tabata explained.
Final Fantasy XV for PC will be “more immersive than ever before,” Square Enix says. It will make use of a number of Nvidia graphics features, one of which is Nvidia Hairworks, which will make everyone’s hair look better,wow!
Global brand manager Raio Mitsuno told PC Gamer that, gameplay-wise, Final Fantasy XV for PC will be simply the same as console. But in the graphics department, as is often expected, PC players will get the best experience if they have a capable rig to boot.
“We can say now that Final Fantasy XV on PC supports native 4K and also up to 8K, as well as HDR 10,” Mitsuno explained. “But we haven’t really revealed anything like minimum specs yet because we’re developing at such a high end which means we can’t really define it with current standards now. At some point, we will publish the recommended and minimum specs, but we can’t say exactly what they are at the moment.” – Tabata said.
NVIDIA here we come!
Tabata said in a press release that working with Nvidia, the team is going to be able to deliver a “stunning visual experience” with Final Fantasy XV on PC. “Nvidia pushes the pace of innovation in our industry, and that benefits gamers and developers alike,” he said.
