Final Fantasy XV Windows Edition Benchmarks Outlined

by Joey Thurmond on Feb 01, 2018 at 02:30 PM

It's been over a year since Final Fantasy XV's release. Its continued, successful support has been nothing less than astonishing, and that commitment to keeping it rolling was made more evident with the announcement that it'd be coming to PC. With a release date of March 6 confirmed in the past few weeks and new content coming along with it, PC players can now test to see how the title will fare on their systems with a benchmark tool.

In a post from Dan Seto on Square Enix's blog, he mentions how "native 4K and 8K resolutions with HDR10 and Dolby Atmos [will be supported] along with ongoing mod support." You can download the benchmark tool here and read more details about minimum and recommended specs in the blog post. You can also pre-order this edition of the game from Steam, Origin, or the Microsoft Store with respective bonuses related to cosmetics and items. More bonuses will be announced in the near future with these platforms.

In the meantime, you can check out features editor Kimberley Wallace's recent interview with director Hagime Tabata and their discussion about Final Fantasy XV's post-development evolution by clicking here. PC Gamer will also be conducting an exclusive session with technical director Takeshi Aramaki and game design manager Kenichi Shida on February 17 and 18 about the Windows' Edition development and features. You can keep an eye on this event through here.

Our Take
It's always wonderful when developers have the resources and time to put a concerted effort into realizing a title's visuals and performance to their fullest potential post-launch, even if it takes a long time. Considering how gorgeous Final Fantasy XV's world is to traverse on consoles, I'm excited to see more about how it will look on PC soon.
