Square Enix has locked in the PC spec requirements to play Final Fantasy 15, along with a release date...and the hardware reqs aren't too bad.

A while back reports surfaced that Final Fantasy 15's Windows Edition on PC had a beefy recommended spec requirement of an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, but the publisher quickly said this isn't true. Fast forwarded to many weeks later and we see the open-world RPG can actually be played with an AMD R9 280 graphics card, showing just how much Square Enix has scaled the game.

 

Minimum specs to play FF15 on PC at 720p resolution include an R9 280 or an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 or GTX 1050 video card, an Intel Core i5-2500 or an AMD FX-6100 CPU (3.3GHz and above), and 8GB of RAM. Recommended specs to play at 1080p include a GeForce GTX 1060 with 6GB of VRAM or an AMD RX 480, an Intel Core i7-3770 (3.4GHz and above) or an AMD FX-8350 (4GHz and above), and 16GB of RAM.

 

To play at 4K with HDR you'll of course need a GeForce GTX 1080 Ti alongside an Intel Core i7-7700 or an AMD Ryzen 5 1600X. The install size for the base game is 100GB+ whereas the 4K version takes a minimum of 155GB.

 

What's also interesting is that Final Fantasy XV Windows Edition will cost $49.99, and will launch on the Windows Store, Steam, and EA's Origin client on March 6, 2018.
