Final Fantasy XV's Upcoming PC Port Has Pretty Reasonable Minimum Specs

By David Meikleham on at

Square Enix's epically bromantic road trip is finally coming to PC, with a launch scheduled for early 2018. In the run-up to the action JRPG's release on rigs, minimum and recommended specs for Final Fantasy XV: Windows Edition have sped into view.

Here's a look at the specs, courtesy of the Windows Store:

Minimum:

  • Windows 10 with DirectX 11
  • 8GB RAM
  • Intel Core i5-2400 (3.15GHz) or AMD FX-6100 (3.3GHz) CPU
  • Geforce GTX 760 or similarly powered GPU

Recommended:

  • Windows 10 with DirectX 11
  • 16GB RAM
  • Intel Core i7-3770 (3.4GHz) or AMD FX-8350 (4.0GHz) CPU
  • Nvidia GTX 1060 or similarly powered GPU

You can pick up a second-hand GTX 760 for well under £100, so those minimum specs aren't too bad at all. Conversely, that recommended setup is gonna cost you a fair chunk of change. Nvidia's GTX 1060 pretty much marks the sweet spot in the firm's range of Pascal cards for hitting 1080p with most of the graphical bells and whistles ramped up, but even then one will still cost you the thick end of £200. Considering how demanding Final Fantasy XV was on console, you'll likely need a GTX 1080 if you want to run the game at anything approaching 4K.

All this reminds me, I picked up FFXV in a PSN sale last Christmas, and in the 10 months since, have played it for precisely 14 minutes.

That seems like a pretty good return on a hastily splashed out £35, right?
