Grab Final Fantasy XV Windows Edition for 20% off at Green Man Gaming

Final Fantasy XV's PC port is a stunner.

Good news! The long-awaited Final Fantasy XV PC port runs like a champ, and it looks drop-dead gorgeous. Better news! Even though the game only released on Tuesday, Green Man Gaming is already selling Final Fantasy XV Windows Edition for 20 percent off.

That brings the total down to $40, whereas all other storefronts—Steam, Origin, Amazon, and the Microsoft Store—are selling Final Fantasy XV for its full $50 price tag. And if you’re one of those “Steam or nothing” types, fear not. Green Man Gaming is selling the game as a Steam key, complete with the nifty “Bonus Half-Life pack” that gives you a crowbar, Half-Life-styled outfits, and Gordon Freeman’s distinctive scientist glasses.

The game gobbles up a massive amount of hard drive space, especially if you opt into the high-resolution textures pack, which adds another 65GB to the total. Other than that, though, its system requirements are fairly modest until you ramp things up to 4K resolution. It looks absolutely stunning too—Nvidia helped Square Enix optimize the Windows Edition to turn it into the definitive way to play the game.

Minimum requirements (720p/30fps):

  • Windows 7/8.1/10 64-bit
  • Intel Core i5-2500 (3.3GHz or higher) or AMD FX-6100 (3.3GHz or higher)
  • GeForce GTX 760, GeForce GTX 1050, or AMD Radeon R9 280
  • 8GB memory
  • Over 100GB free space (SSD recommended)

Recommended requirements (1080p/30fps):

  • Windows 7/8.1/10 64-bit
  • Intel Core i7-3770 (3.4GHz or higher) or AMD FX-8350 (4.0 GHz or higher)
  • GeForce GTX 1060 6 GB or Radeon RX 480
  • 16GB memory
  • Over 100GB free space (SSD recommended)

4K HDR requirements, per Nvidia (4K/30fps)

  • Windows 7/8.1/10 64-bit
  • Intel Core i7-7700 (3.6GHz or higher) or AMD Ryzen 5 1600X (3.6GHz or higher)
  • GeForce GTX 1080 Ti
  • 16GB memory
  • Over 155GB free space (SSD recommended)

Disabling some of Nvidia’s GameWorks features can improve performance though. We’d recommend leaving HairWorks on since it goes great with the wooly animals and flowing hair in the game, but turning off ShadowLibs and VXAO boosted our frame rates by 10fps each with a GTX 980 Ti at 1080p resolution.

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
