You will need a monster PC for Final Fantasy XV Windows Edition


Yesterday, I reported on one of the biggest announcements for PC Gamers coming from gamescom. In case you didn’t see, Final Fantasy XV will finally arrive on PC early next year as the Windows Edition on Steam, Origin and the Windows Store.

We are extremely excited for the PC version of the game since it will feature some amazing enhancements. However, when I saw the recommended PC specs for Final Fantasy XV Windows Edition this morning, I couldn’t help but turn to my gaming rig with a look of disgust, because it simply does not match up to the monstrous recommended specs.

But enough about my disappointment in my current gaming rig, I’m just going to rip the Band-Aid off right now and show you the Recommended PC Specs for Final Fantasy XV Windows Edition:

  • Monitor: 4K with HDR support
  • Video Card: GTX 1080 Ti
  • Processor: Ryzen 7 1700 or Intel Core i7 3.4GHz
  • RAM: 16 GB
  • Headphones Surround 5.1 or 7.1
  • Disk Space: 170 GB

That is, without a doubt, some of the highest recommended PC specs I have ever seen. Of course, you will be able to play the PC version on lower settings that require less horsepower, but the minimum system requirements have not been revealed just yet.

Square Enix’s Global Brand Manager, Raio Mitsuno, touched on the topic of minimum requirements speaking to PC Gamer: “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” – Source

It will be very interesting to see what the minimum requirements are and if they are in line with today’s standards for AAA titles on PC.  

Whatever the case may be for the minimum requirements, we know that if you want to experience Final Fantasy XV in the best possible way, you will need an absolute monster of a gaming rig. As a side note, the game will also support 8K resolutions, which is probably one of the reasons the HDD space requirement is so high.

What do you think about the recommended specs for Final Fantasy XV Windows Edition and how does your current gaming rig stack up? Let us know in the comment section below.
