  1. After a nearly two-year wait, PC gamers will finally get a chance to play Final Fantasy XV. The title, originally released on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in 2016, will touch down on the PC on March 6, Square Enix has confirmed.

    The PC version of Final Fantasy XV, called the "Windows Edition", will include all of the season pass DLC (Episodes Gladiolus, Prompto and Ignis as well as multiplayer), extra bosses, a new dungeon, an in-game vehicle and a first-person mode.

    Of course, since PC owners have the luxury of having whatever performance they desire, the PC version of Final Fantasy does include support for native 4K and 8K resolutions in HDR. High-quality ambient occlusion and "advanced hair simulation" are also supported. The system specifications are listed below:

    Minimum Specifications:

    • CPU: Intel Core i5-2500 or AMD FX-6100
    • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 760, GTX 1050, or AMD Radeon R9 280
    • RAM: 8GB
    • Screen Resolution: 1,280 x 720

    Recommended Specifications:

    • CPU: Intel Core i7-3770 or AMD FX-8350
    • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060
    • RAM: 16GB
    • Screen Resolution: 1,920 x 1,080

    Recommended Specifications (4K HDR):

    • CPU: Intel Core i7-7700 or AMD Ryzen 5 1600X
    • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti
    • RAM: 16GB
    • Screen Resolution: 3,840 x 2,160 (4K)

    Console players who missed out on the original 2016 release will have a chance to get the "Royal Edition." which comes with all of the content from the PC version and will cost $50. Console owners who already own the game can download a $20 add-on called the "Royal Pack" which also includes all of the added content. The Royal Edition also comes with new box art from veteran Final Fantasy artist Yoshitaka Amano. Both the Royal Edition and Royal Pack add-on will arrive on March 6, the same as the PC version.

    I couldn't find any prices on the official site but I would assume probably around the $60 mark

    I hate it when companies do that.

    Also, why would anyone buy this on Windows store or Origin when you can get it on Steam.

    From a pre-order bonus standpoint it looks like the Windows Store version wins (the bonuses for the other 2 are just visual not performance enhancing....

    But I understand everyone has their allegiance to whatever content delivery store is their favorite....

    I also hate pre-ordering as I don't want to purchase a mess that may or may not get fully fixed....

    I'll wait until I know if the port is worthy before purchasing.

    My main point was just to bring information on when pricing availability would be (when the pre-orders begin). The Steam page for the game does not yet show pricing information, but we haven't reached the pre-sale date (2/1) yet though.........
