Square Enix has finally released the system requirements for the Final Fantasy XV PC version through the game's listing on the Microsoft Store.
A quick look through the requirements revealed that players do not need to have a monster machine to be able to run Final Fantasy XV: Windows Edition. This means that more gamers will be able to enjoy the long-awaited, latest installment in the long-running RPG franchise.
Final Fantasy XV: Windows Edition System Requirements
In the Final Fantasy XV: Windows Edition page on the Microsoft Store, Square Enix revealed the minimum and recommended system requirements for the RPG.
For the minimum system requirements, the game will need 8 GB of RAM, an Intel Core i5-2400 or AMD FX-6100 processor, and a GeForce GTX 760 graphics card or equivalent.
The recommended system requirements, meanwhile, are for 16 GB of RAM, an Intel Core i7-3770 or AMD FX-8350 processor, and a GeForce GTX 1060 graphics card or equivalent.
In both cases, Final Fantasy XV: Windows Edition will require Windows 10 and DirectX Version 11.
More Gamers Will Get To Play 'Final Fantasy XV' PC Version
The Final Fantasy XV: Windows Edition minimum system requirements are surprisingly accessible. This will likely open up the game to a wider audience, as even budget PC build will be able to run the RPG's PC version.
The recommended system requirements, meanwhile, might be a bit too high for some PC gamers. Most mid-range setups will likely have the GTX 1060, but not all the other specifications.
Maxing out Final Fantasy XV: Windows Edition, however, could be a challenge. In Gamescom 2017 in August, game director Hajime Tabata revealed that even a PC powered by the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti was not able to achieve 60 frames per second at 4K, with all the settings at maximum levels.
What's Next For 'Final Fantasy XV'?
The Final Fantasy XV: Windows Edition release date is scheduled to be within early 2018, but Square Enix also has other things in store for the critically acclaimed RPG.
Square Enix is developing Final Fantasy XV: Pocket Edition, a much cuter version of the RPG for iOS and Android devices. There have also been rumors that this particular version will arrive on the Nintendo Switch.
The Final Fantasy XV multiplayer expansion, Comrades, is also coming soon, and it will offer the chance for players to create customized characters and team up with their friends to tackle all kinds of missions. After a beta test in August, the DLC is set to be launched in November.
