Final Fantasy XV is only available on PS4 and Xbox One at the moment, though game director Hajime Tabata has said in the past that he would like a PC release as a "technical attempt." Other than his desire to run the game on a high-end PC, he also wants to pursue PC-exclusives like user-generated content and mods.
Square Enix has yet to officially announce a PC port for Final Fantasy XV. But thanks to a video shown at this week's Game Developers Conference, we now have an idea how the game would look like on a high-end PC. Check out the video below, which shows how the development team can take the game's already gorgeous visuals to new heights with Luminous Studio Pro, the latest version of Final Fantasy XV's engine.
As you can see, it's quite the eye candy. But take note that the demo runs on Nvidia GTX 1080 Ti, which was also officially revealed at the Game Developers Conference earlier this week. Nvidia's newest GPU arrives next week with a bank-breaking $699 price tag. Aside from the graphical improvements, the video also shows some content not currently in the console version. The most notable of which is the monster truck that Noctis and his buddies are driving.
Will the PC version of the game allow users to drive different versions of the sleek, black Regalia? We still have a long way to go before we find out if that's the case. Because the PC version of Final Fantasy XV likely won't arrive until 2018 rolls around. And that's assuming Square Enix isn't just screwing around with PC owners and actually has plans to port the game.
Final Fantasy XV is the fifteenth main installment in the long-running RPG series (excluding spinoffs, remakes, and sequels). It was released on PS4 and Xbox One last November, though it was originally being developed as a PS3 exclusive game called Final Fantasy Versus XIII. Unlike other non-MMORPG main installments in the series, Final Fantasy XV features only one playable character in Noctis Lucis Caelum. It also features a Kingdom Hearts style battle system, instead of the traditional turn-based variety seen in many Final Fantasy games.
