One of the primary goals for the team behind Final Fantasy XV is to increase the longevity of the game as much as possible. With the popular RPG finally making its way onto PC, this is now a far less daunting task, given the capabilities of the platform, which can accommodate mods, and perhaps now even a level editor.
Game director Hajime Tabata revealed:There were limitations to the game to ensure it ran on consoles, but that’s less of an issue with PCs — especially when it comes to modding. PC gaming has a culture of customization and modification, and we want to ensure that those gamers can do what they want to the game. We’re looking into the possibilities of a dedicated level editor. We want to ensure that gamers will be playing FFXV for a long time to come.”
The future is certainly looking very bright for Final Fantasy XV, particularly after everything that was revealed at Gamescom 2017. As well as the announcement of the PC port, FFXV: Pocket Edition was announced for mobile devices, plus a crossover with Assassin’s Creed to bring some free timed DLC to fans.
Speaking of DLC, the next set of downloadable content includes ‘Episode Ignis’ as well as the new multiplayer mode ‘Comrades,’ which gives players the chance to create their very own Final Fantasy character.
Final Fantasy XV is now available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, with the PC version set for release early next year. Meanwhile, the Pocket Edition is set to launch sometime in the fall of this year.
