Final Fantasy XV Windows Edition Will Offer Xbox One Cross-Play

With Final Fantasy XV Windows Edition a month away, PC gamers will be happy to know that they will have the option to play with their Xbox One friends at launch.

According to the Microsoft Store listing page, those who purchase the PC port of Final Fantasy XV from Microsoft will have the option to utilize cross-platform co-op with Xbox One owners. Additionally, this version of Final Fantasy XV Windows Edition will also include access to Xbox Live online co-op, achievements, presence, and cloud saves. Unfortunately, those who buy the game on Steam will not have access to those aforementioned features.

 Final Fantasy XV Windows Edition will include the base game as well as over twenty extra add-ons and DLC, which consists of all post-launch content featured in the game’s Season Pass. Furthermore, new updated features include an extended map of Insomnia, a region within the game, new foes, extra side quests as well as an option to play the game in first-person.

Final Fantasy XV Windows Editon will launch on March 6. For more information on the game, check out some screenshots showcasing the game in 8K resolution thanks to Nvidia Ansel, a new trailer focusing on this version of the game, the PC configuration requirements needed to run the game, as well as a slew of 4K screenshots.

Final Fantasy XV PC Benchmark’s 8K Screenshots Show Insane Details Thanks to Nvidia Ansel

We already knew that the Final Fantasy XV team went really over the top with the details and the visual fidelity of the game, but I never realized the full extent of it until Square Enix released the benchmark of the Windows Edition for PC.

Turns out that the benchmark is compatible with Nvidia Ansel, meaning that it has a full-fledged photo mode built in. At any point, you can press ALT+F2 to pause the sequence, move the camera however you like (with a lot more freedom of what you can do on consoles), apply filters, and explore angles of Final Fantasy XV that we have never seen.

Have you ever wondered what the scene looks like at the camp when Ignis puts the dish on the table and you just see your hand? Maybe you have wanted to see Shiva’s transformation from a different angle… for science. Maybe have wondered what a certain bird looks like? Now you can see for yourself.

There are some really insane details to discover all over the place, and if you know me, you also know that I never use terms like “insane” lightly.

If instead of looking at things up close, you want a bird-eye view, you can zoom out however much you like. I have not find limits to where I could move the camera, and I searched for a while. There might be some, but in that case, they’re very, very far away.

You can check out some screenshots I took today at 8K resolution, representing just a fraction of what you can portray and discover. Some characters are also really fetching to photograph just for fun.

It’s worth mentioning that the benchmark features a relevant story spoiler, and that’s included in the gallery below. I put all the spoiler-y pictures at the end, though. If you have not yet played the game, and plan to with the Windows Edition or the upcoming Royal Edition on consoles, stop browsing the gallery when you see Noctis with red eyes. You have been warned.

I should also give you an additional warning on the fact that the pictures including the spoilers are also potentially not safe for work, due to a certain Astral being… less than fully dressed. Again, if you stop when you see a Noctis with red eyes and the screen becomes bluish, you should be fine.

The game will be available on PC on March 6th, alongside the Royal Edition for PS4 and Xbox One. If you want to see more, you can check out a trailer for each, and a batch of 4K screenshots. In case you can’t run the benchmark yourself, you can also enjoy a video, just keep in mind what I mentioned above about spoilers.
