The announcement of Final Fantasy XV Windows Edition surprised everyone. While Game Director Hajime Tabata had said he wanted to port the game to PC at some point, there were no signs prior to Gamescom 2017 that the reveal was imminent.

Regardless, Square Enix shared some additional information on Final Fantasy XV Windows Edition. First of all, the game is set to beat all records when it comes to hoarding space on your hard drive, as it will require 170GB.

This, among other system requirements, were mentioned in the original YouTube video posted on Square Enix's channel.

* Monitor: supports 4K/HDR
* GPU: Geforce 1080Ti
* CPU: lntel i7 3.4ghz or Ryzen 7 1700
* RAM: 16 GB
* HDD: 170GB
* 5.1 or 7.1 surround headphone

The video has since been taken down, though there's a screen capture on the Web. Interestingly, the game will support up to 8K resolution.

However, those specifications may not be final. In fact, Global Brand Manager Raio Mitsuno said to PC Gamer:

We can say now that FF15 on PC supports native 4K and also up to 8K, as well as HDR 10. But we haven’t really revealed anything like minimum specs yet because we’re developing at such a high end which means we can’t really define it with current standards now. At some point we will publish the recommended and minimum specs, but we can’t say exactly what they are at the moment.

Akio Ofuji, Global Brand Director, added:

Obviously when developing for PC we have to keep in mind the demographic and players that play on PC and what they’re looking for. From from a technological standpoint, we’re trying to meet their standards and obviously when we think about PC gamers we put in a first-person camera mode in the PC version.

We’re doing stuff to cater to the PC audience and we hope that by appealing to what they’re used to, that’ll bring them into the franchise and make them into fans of Final Fantasy.

Final Fantasy XV Windows Edition will be out in early 2018. Check out some amazing 4K screenshots below.
