PC gamers rejoice! The released date for Final Fantasy XV for Windows has been confirmed by Square Enix. It will be released on March 6 along with a new Royal Edition for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The Royal Edition is intended give feature parity to console owners.
Both editions contain the base game, all season pass content, an expanded Insomnia City Ruins map, a controllable Royal Vessel boat, an accessory to summon an Armiger in combat, a first person camera mode, over a dozen DLC items, Regalia Type-D quests, and the Cosmogony archives.
The final PC requirements for Final Fantasy XV have also been released. The minimum specs will require a beefy computer just to get the game running at 720p, with 1080p requiring a very recent GeForce 1060 or a Radeon 480. It seems like an SSD with plenty of space may be required, though the table is a bit vague about hard drive support. While the spec table says a DVD-ROM drive is required, this will only be necessary for those who buy a physical copy. The game will also be available through Steam, Origin, and Windows 10 Store.
