Final Fantasy XV’s official PC system requirements have been announced

Shortly after Final Fantasy XV was officially announced for the PC at Gamescom, some fake PC system requirements began doing the rounds, claiming that the game would take up 170GB of space while also recommending extremely high-end CPUs and GPUs just to run the game. It painted a worrying picture at first but fortunately, this week, the game’s official system requirements were announced and they are quite sensible.

Final Fantasy XV: Windows Edition is coming in ‘early 2018’ and will be the ‘ultimate quality’ version of the game. So far, demos of the PC version have used a GTX 1080Ti to show it off at 4K and 60 frames per second. However, you won’t need a machine that powerful to get the game running.

Final Fantasy XV’s minimum requirements include:

  • OS: Windows 10.
  • Memory: 8GB.
  • Processor: Intel Core i5-2400 or AMD FX-6100.
  • Graphics Card: Nvidia GTX 760.

The game’s recommended requirements include:

  • OS: Windows 10.
  • Memory: 16GB.
  • Processor: Intel Core i7 3770 or AMD FX-8350.
  • Graphics Card: Nvidia GTX 1060.

We’ll have to wait until the game comes out to see how well it runs, but I’d guess that the recommended spec is targeting 1080p at least. I would also hope that a GTX 1060 could run the game at 60 frames per second but we won’t know that until launch.

KitGuru Says: Square Enix has had a chequered history with Final Fantasy PC ports but Hajime Tabata has seemed very enthusiastic about creating a proper PC version right from the start, so I have high hopes. Are many of you looking forward to the PC version of Final Fantasy XV? What do you think of the proposed system requirements?
