The Windows Edition of Square Enix’s highly-popular role-playing game, Final Fantasy XV, is slated to launch on March 6, but if that still feels too far away, the company has some good news for you. Square Enix has announced that it will launch a free demo for the Windows Edition on Monday, February 26th. According to the company, the demo will allow fans “to experience all of Chapter 1 and fully explore the tutorial and opening quests of the epic adventure in Eos”.

Final Fantasy XV: Exclusive In-Game Items and Bonuses

The company has also announced that there are several bonuses available to those who join in, depending on where they purchase the game from. The bonuses will be limited to extra costumes and power-ups for the most part, but there’s one in particular that caught my eye. If you are to buy the game from Steam, you’ll get a costume based on Half-Life protagonist Gordon Freeman. It may not be a big deal for everybody, but you won’t believe that going by the flurry of responses on social media and sections of the gaming media.

Final Fantasy XV: System Requirements

Square Enix has also announced the system requirements for Final Fantasy XV Windows Edition. Unfortunately, though, it seems a bit on the higher side, so most players might need to upgrade their rigs if they want to play on higher settings, especially, given that the game will support “Native 4K and 8K resolutions with HDR10 and DOLBY ATMOS”.
