Final Fantasy XII PC gets 1 February release date


Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age will finally become available for the PC on 1 February. 

The HD remake of the much-loved RPG – which originally came out on the PlayStation 2 in 2006, before the remade version for the PlayStation 4 arrived in July 2017 – will keep all the features and enhancements that the PS4 remake brought, while benefiting from some extra improvements.

Among those, according to Square Enix, area 60fps frame-rate; compatibility with 21:9 ultra-wide monitors (up to three HD monitors can be used with the game on PC); New Game Plus and New Game Minus modes accessible from the beginning of the game; and maximised Licence Points and Gil accessible from the configuration screen. 

On February 2 (from 8am GMT), producer Hiroaki Kato and Director Takashi Katano will answer questions posed by Final Fantasy fans on Twitter about the game: you will be able to watch that, with English subtitles, on Square Enix’s official YouTube page.

And there are benefits for adopting the game early: anyone who buys the game via Steam during its first week on sale will get a 20 per cent discount, a three-track digital music compilation and a new Steam Skin illustrated by Final Fantasy artist Isamu Kamikokuryo.
