Final Fantasy XV is coming to PC in 2018 with added visual flair

It looks like console players won't get to hog all of the Final Fantasy XV fun for much longer. Speaking at Gamescom, developer Square Enix has announced that Final Fantasy XV will be making its way to Windows PCs in early 2018.

As part of the move, Square Enix is getting a little bit of help from the folks at NVIDIA. The developer says it will be using NVIDIA's GameWorks tech suite to optimize Final Fantasy XV for PC, while adding extra graphical flair to make it "the definitive version of the game." Included in those plans is support for 4K and 8K resolutions, HDR10, and Dolby Atmos.

In terms of graphical boosts over its console counterparts, the PC version of Final Fantasy XV will also feature more life-like hair and shadows, along with more dynamic vegetation, fluid, fire and smoke. The GeForce Experience capture and share tools will also be supported, allowing for 360-degree screen captures and quick video capture through NVIDIA ShadowPlay.

Finally, the PC version will pack in bonus content originally released with the season pass on the console versions of the game.

Final Fantasy XV: Windows Edition will launch sometime in early 2018. For more, you can check out the game's store listing on Steam.
