Final Fantasy XV Benchmark Available Ahead of PC Release

The long awaited PC version of Final Fantasy XV is right around the corner, set to release on March 6th. The game’s director, Hajime Tabata claims the Windows Edition of FFXV was built from the ground up. As such, PC players can expect Final Fantasy experience that looks and plays like it’s "a generation ahead". With this bold claim out in the open, Square Enix has released a benchmark tool, so gamers can measure whether their rig is up to to the task.

Whatever version of the game PC players decide to get, they can expect a complete Final Fantasy XV experience. All DLC will be included which means Episode Prompto, Gladiolus and Ignis as well as the multiplayer expansion, Comrades.
