Final Fantasy XV Sure Looks (And Runs) Great On PC

Final Fantasy XV looks good on consoles, though on PC, it feels like a diversion that we were meant to play dual years ago.

The PC chronicle of Square Enix’s child rope spectacular launched today, and from some initial contrast (with me on a GTX 1080 and Fahey on a Radeon Vega RX 64), it’s looking and using great. At 1440p I’m averaging around 80FPS (with all of a NVIDIA flourishes incited off) while Fahey is attack 75FPS during 2560 x 1080 with 125% fortitude scaling. We haven’t played much, though from what we have played so far, this appears like a plain port.

And, man, Final Fantasy XV’s deserts and vistas demeanour extensive during 60+ frames-per-second. It’s tough to report a disproportion when you’re not looking during it (watch footage next this paragraph), though framerate drops were common in a otherwise-technically-impressive console chronicle of a fifteenth categorical Final Fantasy. At 60 or some-more frames per second, a diversion is only so most smoother than it is during 25-30fps. Warping around a terrain feels faster, while pushing creates we feel like you’re out on an tangible highway outing with your dear buddies Ignis and Prompto. (Fuck Gladio.)

Unlike Square Enix’s Steam versions of comparison games—Chrono Trigger, Final Fantasy VI, etc.—Final Fantasy XV is adult there with Final Fantasy XII as one of a improved PC ports we’ve seen. In further to a horde of graphical flourishes, a PC chronicle comes with all of final year’s DLC (Episodes Prompto, Ignis, and Gladiolus) as good as some new features. There are new trainer fights, a integrate of new scenes, and even an encyclopedia-like Archives underline to assistance we keep lane of all a lore. Should this all have been in a initial release? Probably! But hey, here we are.


The PC chronicle of Final Fantasy XV also comes with an discretionary first-person mode, and in my brief experience, I’d suggest staying divided if we are even somewhat disposed to suit sickness. This diversion was clearly not designed to be played in initial person.

It was, however, designed to be played during 60 frames-per-second or higher. If you’re personification Final Fantasy XV for a initial time, or we only feel like revisiting a adventures of Noctis and crew, PC seems like a best approach to go.
