Misconception: Final Fantasy XV does not need 170GB of space

From the official side, there were concrete indications that the PC version of the Rolling Game Final Fantasy XV requires up to 170 GB of storage space on HDD or SSD. Now it is known that it is simply a communication error. The exact requirements have not yet been established.

Square Enix had put the supposed system requirements for Final Fantasy XV into circulation. In a message of 170 GB HDD memory and a GeForce GTX 1080 Ti as the recommended system requirement was.

Demo-computer equipment instead of system requirements

Now, Square Enix’s Hajime Tabata made it clear that this was a misunderstanding. At the Gamescom, Tabata explained in conversation with Kotaku that there was a mistake in the communication. The data would not reflect the recommended system requirements but simply the equipment of the demo system at the show. On the other hand, the official requirements were not yet established at all.

Square Enix introduces the game on systems with GeForce GTX 1080 Ti in 4K resolution at Gamescom. According to Tabatas, a GTX 1080 Ti would currently suffice just for 30 FPSs in this resolution. However, the minimum requirements should be set significantly lower.

Opulent graphics with insane distant vision

ComputerBase was able to get an impression of the current version of Final Fantasy XV for the PC in conversation with Square Enix. In fact, the title is currently running with the top model of Nvidia still not sufficiently liquid with very high details in Ultra HD, but the engine drawn by the engine on the television is stunning. Both the detailed depiction of the landscape and characters as well as the textures as well as the visibility. However, for this purpose, Square Enix uses Nivdia’s GameWorks kit and is heavily focused on tessellation, which means that it remains to be seen whether systems with graphics cards from AMD (to start) will face problems.

Final Fantasy XV will be released on the PC at the beginning of 2018, bringing various Nvidia techniques as well as support for 8K resolution, HDR10 and Dolby Atmos.
