Final Fantasy 12: The Zodiac Age Releases in Just a Few Weeks on PC with New Features

Cheat your way to riches by maximizing Gil.

Last year, Final Fantasy 12: The Zodiac Age released on PlayStation 4, giving the underappreciated, late-era PlayStation 2 JRPG another chance at love. The better-textured world looked surprisingly great on the current-gen hardware, though obviously not as great-looking as Final Fantasy 15 is pixel-by-pixel. On February 1, PC players will finally get a chance to dive into the JRPG, and they get a few bonuses with the experience too.

Square Enix announced today that the PC-version of Final Fantasy 12: The Zodiac Age will feature an upgraded bump of 60fps and will be compatible with 21:9 ultra-wide monitors. (If you're really feeling the visuals, you can even connect three HD screens for "a potential 48(16x3):9 experience." Woo-wee.) The game also comes to the personal computer platform with new features in tow, specifically a new function to basically cheat that allows players to max out their Gil currency and license points.

This will look way better on PC.

From the start of launching the PC version, a few other things are available right from the jump. The game's three versions of its soundtrack—original (almost as if it's playing from a PS2 sound chip itself), reorchestrated, and a crisper version of the original—are all accessible from the start. Also, players will be able to dive right into New Game Plus or New Game Minus mode. New Game Plus allows players to dive directly into the postgame as if they'd beaten the game already. New Game Minus mode does the same thing, only now players won't be able to gain any additional experience points the entire playthrough.

Final Fantasy 12: The Zodiac Age launches in just a few weeks on PC. The game will be available for 20 percent off during its first week on Steam. There's no word on how much it costs yet, but as the PS4 version was $49.99 at launch, the PC version will likely be around the same price.
