Final Fantasy XV Royal Edition Announced, Windows Edition Dated

While we’re receiving Final Fantasy XII in a couple of weeks, Square Enix has an extra surprise for their PC fans. The Japanese-based publisher has announced the release date for Final Fantasy XV’s PC version. This will be a Steam, Origin and Windows 10 simultaneous release on March 6, with a benchmark coming February 1.

In addition, they have detailed the specs for the PC version:

Required Specs

  • OS: Windows 7 SP1/8.1/10 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-2500 / AMD FX-6100
  • GPU: Nvidia GTX 760 or 1050 / AMD Radeon R9 280
  • RAM: 8GB
  • HDD: 100GB+

Recommended Specs

  • OS: Windows 7 SP1/8.1/10 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-3770 / AMD FX-3850

With a 155GB space requirement for the 4K version, this will be a massive game. It does have some pretty reasonable required and recommended specifications, though.

That’s not all, though, as Square Enix has announced the Royal Edition available for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, which will feature all the downloadable content, new enemies, side quests and a first-person camera mode (all featured in the PC version, as well).

  • Expanded Map: Insomnia City Ruins – all-new side quests and enemies such as Cerberus and Omega will be available through the expanded map of the Crown City of Insomnia. Players will also take on the Rulers of Yore.
  • A fully-controllable Royal Vessel boat, expanding the world of Eos and allowing players to explore the area between Cape Caem and Altissia. Players will also be able to fish aboard the vessel and discover new fishes and dishes.
  • A new accessory that can activate the new action “Armiger Unleashed” – players will be able to unleash powerful attacks while the Armiger is summoned. After collecting all of the royal arms, players will be able to find an accessory in an unidentified part of the world, enabling access to Armiger Unleashed.
  • A new first-person camera mode, allowing players to experience the game from Noctis’ perspective.
  • More than a dozen pieces of downloadable content including weapons, Regalia car skins and item sets
  • All season pass content including EPISODE GLADIOLUS, EPISODE PROMPTO, MULTIPLAYER EXPANSION: COMRADES** and EPISODE IGNIS

  • Quest to obtain and Strengthen Regalia Type-D

  • The FINAL FANTASY XV base game

Final Fantasy XV Royal Edition and Windows Edition will be out March 6 for $49.99. If you own a digital copy of the PS4 or Xbox One version and are looking for what the Royal Edition has to offer, there will be a “Royal Pack” available on the PlayStation or Xbox Store. You’ll also get pre-order bonuses for the PC version based on which digital store you purchase from starting the beginning of February.
