Final Fantasy XV: Windows Edition and Royal Edition coming this March


The complete FF XV journey

Are you a wait-n-see gamer, the type of person who doesn't buy the first version of a game and instead waits until they see that inevitable Game of the Year/Complete/Deluxe/Gold edition? Sure, it means you may not experience the hottest games in the year they are released, but hey, you save some money and get everything in a single package at often a price cheaper than its initial retail price. I've become more of a wait-n-seer in the past few years and held off buying games like Resident Evil VII and Final Fantasy XV. The wait for RE VII ends this week when I pick up the Gold Edition and in March, I'll finally get my hands on Noctis and company when Square Enix launches Final Fantasy XV: Royal Edition.

Launching worldwide March 6, 2018, FFXV: Royal Edition will include the base game and everything listed here:

  • An all-new dungeon - Insomnia City Ruins: Expanded Map 
  • New features such as first-person mode, new gear, and new bosses. 
  • Armiger Unleashed – after you collect all 13 royal arms, a more action-oriented mode of the Armiger is unlocked 
  • Royal Vessel – the boat from FFXV is now a controllable vehicle. The same body of water (between Cape Caem and Altissia) can now be freely explored. 
  • All season pass content – Episode Gladiolus, Episode Prompto, Multiplayer Expansion: Comrades, and Episode Ignis
  • Over a dozen pieces of DLC, including weapons, Regalia car skins, and item sets.

Final Fantasy XV: Royal Edition will retail for $49.99 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Now, if you were waiting for the game to hit PC, your wait will also end on March 6 when Final Fantasy XV: Windows Edition launches.

FEXV: Windows Edition will include everything found in the Royal Edition with a few enhancements, including:

  • Supports native 4K (maximum 8K) resolution and HDR10 
  • Mod support 
  • First Person mode
  • High-resolution compatible display required for 4K/8K 
  • Windows 10 Creators Update compatible display required for HDR10

Final Fantasy XV: Windows Edition will be available for pre-order starting February 1 on Origin, Steam and the Windows Store, each with their own exclusive pre-order bonus. Square Enix has listed the minimum specs required to run the game:
