Final Fantasy XV is coming to PC next year

Following its launch on PS4 and Xbox One at the end of last year, Final Fantasy XV is making its way to PC.

Publisher Square Enix revealed that the hit RPG would be launching on the platform in early 2018. Furthermore, the firm revealed that game would be launching with Nvidia’s GameWorks tech, which allows for more accurate physics as well as impressive shadows and hair. Technology is awesome.

“With the help of Nvidia, we are creating a stunning visual experience in Final Fantasy XV Windows Edition, one worthy of this beloved franchise,” said game director Hajime Tabata.

“Nvidia pushes the pace of innovation in our industry, and that benefits gamers and developers alike.”

Final Fantasy XV was originally announced back in 2006 as Final Fantasy XIII Versus. The title had a long and troubled development cycle, eventually resurfacing in 2012 as Final Fantasy XV. It launched in November 2016, shipping 5m units in its first day – which let the title break even. To date, it has shipped over 6m units.

The title’s launch on PC may in part be inspired by the success of Nier Automata, which launched on PC as well as PlayStation 4.
