Final Fantasy 15: Windows Edition Coming in March, Requires 155GB for 4K HDR

Square Enix has offered up a release date for the PC version of FFXV.

Final Fantasy XV: Windows Edition brings all of the hot Final Fantasy XV action to PCs very soon! Square Enix has released a trailer for the Windows Edition release on Steam, Origin, and Windows 10. The trailer shows off the new features like 8K resolution support and high-resolution textures.

More importantly, the trailer gives players a final release date: March 6, 2018.

Unfortunately, there are different pre-order bonuses depending on your platform. Players who pre-order the game on the Windows Store get the FFXV Powerup Pack with items to enhance your characters. On Steam, the FFXV Fashion Collection offers cosmetic outfits for Noctis and crew. On Origin, there's the FFXV Decal Selection, with an array of decals for the Regalia.

The official site for the Windows Edition also has the updated system specifications.

Minimum Specifications

  • Operating System: Windows 7 SP1/ Windows 8.1 / Windows 10 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-2500 (3.3GHz or higher), AMD FX-6100 (3.3GHz or higher)
  • Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050, AMD Radeon R9 280
  • Main Memory: 8GB
  • Hard Drive Space: 100GB or higher

Recommended Specifications

  • Operating System: Windows 7 SP1/ Windows 8.1 / Windows 10 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-3770 (3.4GHz or higher), AMD FX-8350 (4.0 GHz or higher)
  • Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050, AMD Radeon R9 280
  • Main Memory: 16GB

4K HDR Specifications

That's actually down from the 170GB listed on previous placeholder recommendations for the game. So, that's good. 4K games take up a good deal of space and that's no different for Final Fantasy XV.

Square Enix will be releasing benchmark software for Final Fantasy XV: Windows Edition on February 1, 2018. It also looks like the Windows Edition will contain the recently-revealed Royal Edition content, but we've reached out to Square Enix for clarification.
